Redhat Enterprise 4 does not detect HDD/partition for installation, Fails!


Hi!

I have following hardware:

HP Pavilion 1521 Desktop - D820 - 2.8GHz , 1GB RAM, 160GB SATA, 16x DVDRW (LITE ON DVDRW SHM -165H6s HP10)

Windows XP is already installed on one primary partition (active) of 80 GB and I have left 80 GB space as another primary partition.

when I try to install Redhat linux entterprise 3 or 4, it reaches to the level of partitioning and system reboots giving following error (I have tried autopartition as well manual and it gives same error):

"An error occured - no valid devices were found on which to create new file system, please check your hardware for the cause of the problem"

I also tried Fedora Core 6, but in this case the screen blanks out with some arbitrary characters after the very first screen of selecting mode of installation (txt vs graphics).

Please help me in installing RHEL 3 or 4
