Instalation hangs when installing SCSI driver ata_piix
Can you please help me?Well today I finally downloaded Fedora Core 1, and I quckly went testing. I put the first cd into cdrom and went installing in graphical mode. But just before it showed the Media Check dialog, it began loading the SCSI driver named ata_piix and here the system hangs. I thought it's just loading so long, so I left it for 15 minutes and went installing Fedora on another computer. When I finished the installation on the second computer (which went smooth), I went back to check if something changed since then. Nothing, it was still showing the loading SCSI driver screen.

I'm using Gigabyte GA8-PENXP motherboard, with Intel 865 PE chipset. More detailed specifications:

# North Bridge : Intel® 865PE MCH
# South Bridge : Intel® ICH5
# Integrated Peripherals:
1. Intel® CSA interface Gigabit Ethernet Controller
2. Silicon Image Serial ATA chip
3. Texas Instrument IEEE 1394 chip
4. GigaRAID controller chip
5. Realtek ALC655 CODEC

I think that this is a hardware problem, but SuSE 8.2, which was installed before, didn't cause such problems.

Has anyone before had simular problems like me? Please help me, because it's urgent.

Thank you

It's the driver... There's a review over at OS News with a similar problem...

He didn't offer much of an answer. I won't, either... Search Google for a driver that works, or wait till Fedora produces one.

Hopefully, somebody else can come up with a better answer.

Regarding the Silicon Image Serial ATA chip. Did that work okay with SuSE 8.2, i,e detect etc??

Also which are the best SATA's to go for. i.e make?
