Slackware 12.2 Sata DVD problems under installation

I am installing Slackware 12.2 on my VIA Mini-ITX "server"

I can boot from the DVD and use the installation menu, but when i choose to install from the local CD/DVD Slackware is unable to find the drive (Although i just booted from the DVD)

I have tried installing from the server at

I can see the 1012 packages and choose which to install, But the install is super quick, 10-15 seconds, although i selected most of the packages except KDE and some Applications i don't need without a GUI

When i am asked to specify a root password i get the error: "No such file/directory" (Roughly)

And none of the packages is installed.

In the whole process i get no errors except the one above.

I am using a SATA Harddrive and a SATA DVD Drive

Theres no legacy options for SATA in the BIOS
and my harddrive is mounted (by Slackware) as dev/hda0

Any ideas what's causing this?

Try Slackware 13.1 as it should have better hardware support for your machine.
