help me

Hi all,

this is siva and i want your help in installing linux on my pc having intel 2.8 D processor and 80GB SATA HDD.

the problem is that when i start installing linux 9 core 4 as a dual boot it is saying no hardware found to create the new file system so i'm unable to proceed with that .

I'm having 40 GB of non DOS partition on my HDD even though the linux bootable CD is not recognizing SATA HDD.

so can u please help me with this

thanks in advance

Which distro of linux are you trying to install? Many need special kernel options at boot to see SATA.

Welcome to LinuxQuestions for both of you.

Indeed, you might check special boot parameters for sata. This is usually found at boot time by pressing F2 or something. It usually says so in the screen. You could also try newer distro... probably...
You could tell the distro your using so we would be able to give more precise information.

There is no Redhat 9 anymore. Out of service.
The follow up of it is called Fedora Core 5.
And Redhat Enterprise is the Distribution which is supported by redhat but you'll have to pay for it.

So do you install Redhat 9 shrike or Fedora Core 5 ?
And your subject sorry... Help me is very poor.

Good subject for your thread would be Fedora Core 5 doesn't recognize SATA HDD or Redhat 9 doesn't recognize SATA HDD

So in order that we can help you we'll need to know the exact name of the Distribution and Version you want to install.

There is nothing better that the latest stable release of any distro
