For reference I've noticed the problem in FC6 on an Intel 965 board, but it can be fixed with the pci=nommconf option.

Thanks to all of you, I tried to install ubuntu and it worked with the command (pci=nommconf)but if u could reply me this questions?

I made 20GB of my E: Drive free but it was still at the extended partiotion of Windows XP;should I need to remove that as a seperate partition??

In manual partition process there are two process one to mount the files to / and also in a certain step it asked as
(ext/) how to configure that??
(I know what is meant by swap)

Also it asked for GRUB to be loaded after installation is complete.But after restart it returned to menu no operating system found insert boot disk to continue
Is GRUB needed to be installed???
I want to work both on windows and Linux

Please suggest me in this

Thanks
Sriram

Hi syamasri. For this you need to use the kernel parameter
Code:
pci=nommconf
(as described above)

This should fix the problem

Thanks guys! The pci=nommconf got my system to boot. I also discovered that centos 4.5 will not install on this system with an ide cdrom. But it will with a sata cdrom. I have the ide options set to legacy in the bios.

Hope that helps.

I've also seen this - I believe the fix was to use the kernel parameter:

all-generic-ide

You should be able to boot off the IDE CDROM using this option

Sata

when installing use boot parameter "all-generic-ide" and "pci=nommconf", it'll resolve SATA driver problem.

Regards,

Also, go to support.intel.com and make sure you have the latest bios. I'm currently installing Mandriva 2007 on a DP965LT (functionally equivilant to your system w/o graphics). My SATA is set to AHCI and working fine (except for the Plextor SATA DVD-RW).


I am also facing same problem but i am using Intel Atom processor and D525MW motherboard.I am not able to get into the boot scree itself. Please help me out toi resolve this issue.
