My computer has an Intel processor, a 930GB SATA hard disk, Windows Vista, and an Intel ICH8R SATA RAID controller.
KNOPPIX, distros based on KNOPPIX, and Puppy Linux won't work on my PC when I boot them off LiveCDs.
With KNOPPIX and KNOPPIX based distros, it states -
'Cannot find KNOPPIX filesystem, sorry. Dropping you to a (very limited) shell.'
And with Puppy Linux -
'Searching for Puppy files on computer hard disks. Cannot find file pup_400.sfs.
Dropping to limited shell.' (or something along those lines.)
I think these problems might be related to the RAID controller. Can someone please help me?
