I am trying to install RedHat Ent Edition 3 for my PC. During the installation ,it can't detect my hard disk and ask for device drivers. I am not sure it is becoz of my HDD or Chipset (Mother board). But any case, the installation did n't complete and exit with error message, "No Hard Drive found".
I have already had WinXp and created new partition for linux(ext3) primary, swap with partition magic.
My System Details: Mother Board: Intel® Desktop Board D102GGC2
developer.intel.com/design/motherbd/gc2/gc2_drive.htm[/url] HDD : Samsung HD080HJ, 7200 rpm
Linux : Red Hat 3 EE
Do I need to get device driver (linux) for HDD or chipset?
Any help would be great
The same problem here with a Samsung SATA (HD080HJ/P) drive when trying to install Mandriva Linux. Ofcourse, the kernel is 2.6* series. I guess I have to try a driver floppy. But, need to sort out a floppy drive first.
Sorry for the delay in updating the therad. That didn't work. I couldn't find a matching Linux driver for my SATA drive. Looks like Samsung encourages Windows. Well, I have fixed it.. but using a different OS. Ubuntu It's cool. Ubuntu detected the SATA drive without prompting for anything. Well, as I am more comfortable with KDE desktop, I installed KUbuntu later. I have to say, it's cool. Anyone still having issues, just try it out. You can download it from their site absolutely free of cost! Nice heh!?
HopingWhite ...kernel 2.4 works with SATA disks the only this is that the initial versions were not very supporting the wide range. anbures try using the latest or atleast Update 4 of RHEL3 ..they support wide range of SATA disks.
Also try using FC6 which can really be the solution for you.
