Fedora does not recognize my hard disk SATA


Hello, I have a problem when fedora installs 7 (also I have proved with fedora 8 and the same thing happens) and is that it does not recognize me the hard disk SATA, I have a laptop hp pavilion 6760, I would like that someone was passing to myself the controller of the hard disk SATA for linux or that they say some solution to me, it is urgent because I need the computer to work.
Thank you

Can the bios set the sata channel to PATA or Lagacy IDE mode?

I wonder if the sata controller is even supported. To test I would download say the latest knoppix or ubuntu Live CD and burn to a cd. Boot with that cd and see if you can see the drive. If not the run the command from the live cd and post output.
/sbin/lspci -v

Being a laptop it does make it more difficult if the sata controller is supported. It is possible it will work under Fedora but the default Fedora kernel in the anaconda installer tool may not support it but once installed the installed kernel will. Normally in places like this I install to an IDE and then copy the partition over to the sata drive.

If the live cd sees the drive or at least the controller is supported even in a newer kernel then it can be installed but not the normal way. The easiest is get an adapter to plugin a sata size laptop drive into a desktop machine with sata support and an a controller that Fedora recognizes. Fedora 8 would be the best choice there. Then do the first step of installing till the cd ejects. When done remove and insert into notebook and fire up from there.

It would be good if you added a description of *how* you fixed it. Might help others.
