Need details about your hardware first. Might want to try disabling ACPI (add "noacpi" to the boot line in the installer). You can also try to change SATA mode to "legacy" in your BIOS.

Also, since you have RHEL5, I'd suggest you call RedHat support...since you are paying for it. They'll be able to help.

Did you try to set SATA to legacy mode, as I mentioned in my first post??? Did you contact RedHat support????

Thanks TBOne,

I made the changes to the BIOS, and it worked.
