fc4 doesnt detect any harddisks
i burned isolinux image of fedora on a cdrom as i am using isos to install it. on rebooting , i pressed enter to log in to graphical mode.
the booting started and then suddenly i started getting these kind of messages:
SIS_IDE : probe of 0000:00:02.5 detection with error
...things now move very fast i cant see....
VFS:cannot open root "<NULL>" or unknown boot (8,3).
please append a correct"root=" boot option
kernel panic not syncing :VFS unable to mount root fs
and loads to rubbish...
then the screen wud get stuck and i wud have to reboot
i hav tried several times ( even detached my sata to do it and next time pata and next time with both attached(phew..) )but in vain.
i , as suggested by some forums , entered garbage values first and then pressed enter
installtion procedures starts
BUT then fc4 doesnt detect any harddisks( i hav 2 hdd 180gb sata and 20 gb pata)!!!!!
