Could not stat device error preventing install


I am trying to install Fedora 10 on my machine using the x64 live cd. When the install gets to the part of the install where typically the next button shows the drive install options (replace existing linux, use all space, etc) I get the following error:

Could not stat device /dev/mapper/nvidia_jifdijjc - No such file or directory.

Are you using an nvidia motherboard and if so, you'll have to check to see if its compatible. I'm googling "/dev/mapper/nvidia fedora" and it seems to be related to RAID. Go to your BIOS and make sure RAID is disabled, and keep checking your BIOS settings each time you have an installation issue.

I am using an NVidia NForce 680i motherboard. RAID is disabled for sure.

Keep probing different BIOS settings because there doesn't seem to be much else at this point. Also run a memtest to make sure your memory modules are good.
