Hi I am a noob to linux but I have recently purchased SuSE 9.2 Pro and am trying to install it. When I try to install it I have a problem with it finding my hard disk. I do not know what to do and have searched through forum after forum and this seems to be the place to get and answer. SuSE 9.2 Pro is running kernel 2.6.8. I would like to install the 64 bit for 9.2 pro because my machine can handle it. That is the reason that I purchased it. Here is what I have for a comp
Asus K8N-E Deluxe
1G of Ram
Amd athlon 64 bit processor
160G Seagate serial ata hard drive
And I currently have Win xp Pro and SuSE 9.1 Personal running on this machine with no probs. When I installed SuSE 9.1 personal I had no problems with it finding my hard drive but SuSE 9.2 can't do it.
I have tried to do the manual installation, acpi off nothing seems to work I get the same error every time. Is there something that I can do to get this installed on my system??
Hi thank you for the reply I have tried that but have been unable to get the manual installation to work. You would not know what drivers I would need to make that serial ata hard drive work would you. I have heard that the kernel that 9.2 is running does not support serial ata hard drives is this true or do I just need to load the driver via manual install?? If you could help me with this I would appreciate it. Thank you
Well I could not get the manual install to work but I am not sure what driver it is that I need to load. What would it be called?? Is it something to do with the seagate serial ata or is it just the serial ata drivers its self?? I would imagine that it did not work because I did not get the right driver loaded when I did the install. If you know what it is called then that would be of much help and I will try to get the install to work manually again and see if I can't find the driver but if you know off the top of your head that would be er helpful and thanks for all of your help.
Alright well I have tried that and I do not know which one it is that I need. I have tried it with the nv_sata drive because that is the mobo that I have and that does not work. I Have tried it with several others but none seem to work. I do not see one that says Seagate or anything of the sort?? Am I missing something or what is my deal. Thanks again for the help.
