SATA :o(


Hello,

I need some pointers and advice on the following. I want to install Debian on a machine which has Intel's ICH8 chipset (Abit IB9 motherboard) and a sata drive. The drive is not recognized. I want to do the following procedure. Install system o a PATA drive and then compile the latest kernel, setup sata, install system to sata.


However I am finding difficulty deciding which kernel version would be appropriate and what general settings would be applicable. I understand i must enable the ata_piix module but not much else. Has anyone done this?

Thank you

I don't know why it's not working for you but I have an ASUS mobo with the same chipset (ICH8) and the installer recognizes sata just fine. If you are using the lenny/etch installer, it could well be a bug. I have tried successive installers over the last few weeks and I haven't found a single one that did its job as it should . Consider getting the Etch installer and then upgrading to Lenny (if that's what you want).

Thank you for your answers. I managed to install using the installer with the latest kernel however I encountered a problem using the shutdown script after installation. Basically i had to change hddown="-h" to hddown="" from the script /etc/init.d/halt. Without this the disk was not ready after a reboot. I didnt have time to find out more.
