Attempting to install a Debian Linux received with the O'Reilly book 'Learning Debian GNU Linux'. The installation claims I have no hard disk, and assumes that I am attempting a network installation. My disk controller is a Promise Ultra 66, if that is of any help. I have heard rumors that it is not supported by Linux. I have been unable to find a list of supported hardware to verify this.

Only the newer distros support the Promise Ultra 66 controller. What version of debian came with the book? If you do a search on this site you will find a few helpful posts on the subject.

Debian 2.1

came with the book. Also had a similar problem with RedHat 6.2. Have not been getting too much help from either Promise or anyone else for that matter. I looked through some of the other threads that were driver-related, but couldn't find one that specified a fix. Do I need to get different hardware, or does Debian 2.2 support it?

Thanks in advance for your help.

i am experiencing a problem. i tried to install RHL - 9 on my Compaq Presario PC and got a msg "No Hard Drives detected". However Windows is running on my PC and when i tried to install Ubuntu-Linux for Human Beings, it detected the presence of the hard drive and showed the existing partitions.

I tried to find the HDD driver thru windows but got nothing matching with the manually loadable drivers in RHL that r listed during installation.

the hard disk in my PC is a SATA one and its number is WDC- followed by some numbers.

plz,can anyone bail me out from this predicament?
