I too was having this same exact problem. However, when booted up with "boot: linux all-generic-ide noapic nolapic" it detected the SATA drive as "/dev/hdi" without a hitch. Why it chose "hdi" is beyond me, but damnit it works.

whats up

hope this helps yall out some. ive been wrestling with installing RHLE4 on a dell dimension e521 pc and i think i finally pinned it. w00w00.

i had the same problems with the sata devices. i even plugged in a usb cdrom (that was ide in a caddy that plugged into the pc via an usb cable, the thought was "hey, ide" the result was crap)

next idea, NFS server. hey, how can i loose. dont have to worry about the sata optical drive. well, now the sata HD is the issue. (ok, ok, everyone knows this crap so far)

after setting up another box as a NFS server, booting up with the disk 1 on the new dell ( at the boot prompt i entered "linux askmethod") set it up for NFS install, and it gave me an error on the hard drive. it gave me a chance to select drivers. the broadband ethernet was selected, and i went through the list of other drivers and picked out the nVidea SATA driver that was near the end of the list. BINGO, its working.

i can see the drive partitions now, so anyway, if this DOESN'T work then ill post again, otherwise, i think this one is licked. advanced appology for my grammer, it sux, i know, i blame it on technology and the influence of too much sugar. laterZ

GF


UPDATE
here is a website i stumbled accross from dell. it shows the driver i used.

I install Scientific Linux 4.4 with : linux all-generic-ide
After reboot, I receive Kernel panic - not syncing

First step:
I use grub for load and I try :
at boot menu type 'e' to edit line, another 'e' to edit kernel and add "all-generic-ide" at end line of the kernel. After that press ENTER and type 'b' for boot.
For me was successful.

Second step (only if the first is successful)
I edit /boot/grub/grub.conf and make first step permanent (add all-generic-ide at the end of the line with kernel)
For example my grub.conf after :

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,10)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda11
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda11
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,10)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Scientific Linux (2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp)
root (hd0,10)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet all-generic-ide
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp.img

For me was good,
Marius.
