PCI Hardware Probe - Hangs
I am having the exact same problem on 3 of the same machines. They have the same configuration (for the most part)
- P4 3.2GHZ
- 1GB Ram
- DVD/CDRW Combo
The HD's vary but I originally started off with 2 SATA HD's of 100GBs each in 2 of the PCs and 200GBs in the other. I found out that even though the motherboard has an onboard raid 1 controller for sata drives, they dont seem to work with windows or linux unless you have special drivers (go figure) So anyway, I installed regular IDE drives in all 3 computers along with the SATA drives.
In all 3 configurations, the loading of linux hangs at the PCI: Probing PCI step.
This was tried with Suse 10.0, Trustix, Debian Sarge, Fedora Core 4, and RedHat 9.
Is there anything that I can do to get the software to install?
