No Hard Disk Found Error on Install


I just bought a brand new Dell Dimension Desktop equiped with an 80 GB SATA hard drive. When I try to install Fedora Core 2, it says it can't find the hard drive. Do I need a special driver or something? Any insight??

There have been a few threads on this, it seems Fedora has some general problems with SATA, if I can find the links I'll post them

I don't really know how SATA drives work but I would try making sure the BIOS can see it, and make sure that the drive is set to primary master, and then install and see if FC2 can find the drive

I've tried every BIOS setting with no luck. I might just have to wait because I guess SATA is relatively new.
