Asus P5W DH Deluxe - ICH7
I've downloaded todays slackware current-iso's and am having difficulties trying to install it on my new pc.
I am not very experienced with GNU/Linux and its my first slackware install. First of, my hardware:
* Core 2 Duo E6600
* Asus P5W DH Deluxe
- ICH7 SATA Controller
* Seagate 250 SATA @ JMicron SATA
* WD1500 Raptor @ ICH7 SATA1
* Hitachi 7k500 SATA II @ ICH7 SATA3
* Samsung SATA cdrom @ ICH7 SATA4
* ATI Raedon X1900
Problem is, my drives are not beeing recognised properly. Tried "adaptec.s", "sata.i", "sata.s", "scsi.s", "test26.s", "huge26.s" kernels, but none worked. Though when I used "test26.s" and "huge26.s", the ICH7 is listed (but says smthg like: 'ICH7: is not 100% native mode' - with and without AHCI enabled via BIOS), the drives don't show up in /dev. I can't access any with fdisk /dev/sdX ...
When booting with 2.6, it also lists the HD names (WDC1500...), but it really takes long and says something like: 'ata1: timeout, ata2: timeout .... response is slow, please wait' or lists 'sdc: sdc1 sdc2 sdc3 sdc4', which is the correct partitioning scheme, but I can't access them later. 'fdsik -l' shows nothing.
So, do you think there is any chance I might get this to work?
Thanks for any help
