Installing Red Hat 9 with sata


I have just bought a second Sata hard drive in order to install RedHat9.

The bios recognises the drive and the icon is in my computer. However, when I try to install RedHat it tells me that it cannot find any harddrives at all!!!

Is this because of sata?

any suggestions would be apprieciated

regards chris

Hi and welcome to LQ.org.

Nope, it's not because of sata, it's because Redhat 9 is so old that it's not even fun. Needless to say, I highly doubt Redhat 9 would recognize a sata disk. If you can, grab something newer, like Fedora Core (in the case you like Redhat). Newer distributions should work without a problem with those devices.

Good luck!

So there is no kind of any update that can be used to upgrade RH 9 to recognize a SATA hard disk?

Not from Redhat because they have discontinued any support or upgrades for Redhat 9. I am sure FC4 will work fine with SATA drives.

Do you still use Windows 95? Probably not.

Then why do you insist on using an older Linux distro?
Follow Mega Man X's advice and obtain a more recent distro
