Suse 9.2 install trouble on asus a7n8x and sii3112a
First of all, I hava an asus a7n8x deluxe motherboard which I know is not the most linux-friendly one. When I try to install suse pro 9.2 and just choosing install, it stops just after "searching for info file" when searching for hardware. The same thing happens when I try 'no acpi' and 'safe settings'. If I choose manual install, I come past this stage but when yast2 is probing for hardware and tries to load sata_sil, nothing happens from there. I have a seagate disk (ST380013AS), which I know means trouble connected to the sil3112a controller, but the same things happen when I unplug it.
My system now consist of a suse 9.1 personal wich runs quite fine on a partition on the seagate disk and I also have windows xp installed on another hard disk connected to the sata controller. That disk is a western digital 120gb, so I guess that should be working fine.
So, my question is: If I buy myself a regular ATA disk and install suse to that without installing the sata_sil module, will grub be able to load windows xp? Grub is now on the second partition on the seagate disk.
