SuSE 9.2 Won't Read My Hard Disk
I have an AMD Athlon 2400+
80gb Hard drive
I am trying to install SuSE Linux 9.2 Professional. I have been able to install SuSE Linux 9.1 Personal, but 9.2 Pro will not detect my hard disk. I am able to start the install normally and once it gets to YAST, I get the error below. When I checked the Kernel messages I also saw
Buffer I/O Error, dev hda and something about sectors and blocks.
I really want to get his OS up and running.
I even reformatted my comp.
10gb - Windows XP Pro
65gb - Unallocated
Windows XP Pro loads up fine
when the kernel is streaming before YAST2 begins
hda: samsung sv8004h, ATA DISK Drive
then the error I get when YAST begins is
ERROR: No hard disks were found for the installation. Please check your hardware!
then if I will to the partitioning tab which displays "no disk found"
"No disks found, please us the Update CD for installation."
please help me.. i really need it
