suse does not recognize hard drive
I am attempting to install Suse Pro8.2 on a new dell power edge SC420, but when the software attempts to recognize the hard drive, I get the following error:
"No hard disks were found for the installation. Please check your hardware"
Then, in the summary, it reads:
No automatic proposal possible. Specify mount points manually in the 'Partitioner' dialog.
If I attempt to manually partion (which, I don't want to do, I'd like to have the software automatically partition), it still does not recognize anything and does not allow me to manually partition. I am only going to use this server for linux, so I am not apposed to formatting the hard drive; also, there is currently no operating system loaded on the server. I have read in other threads about trouble with a SATA hard drive (mine is a 40GB, SATA, 1inch, 7.2k RPM hard drive).
