Slackware 10.1 with Intel SATA


I have asked this question before but I didn't get much out of the answer.

I have tried now several times to install Slackware 10.1 with my Intel sata chipset on a SATA drive without any luck. I boot with the image sata.i.
Instead of detecting my disk as sda it detects as hda that I know is wrong.
I read something in a post that suggested to boot with the line:
sata.i hda=noprobe
But that didn't work.

Since I don't have any floppydrive I can't use bootdisks.

Does anyone know anything I can try? I can't be the only one with this problem.


Regards

I think it does and I was told it is wrong if it is hdx. It should detect as sdx and it did for me in slack 10 with a custom made cd, but not with 10.1.

Does it install as hda? Can you still read and write?

I tried that when I installed 10.0 and it didn't work, but maybe I should give it a try with 10.1 but I don't see wy it should work.

Are you running a 2.6 kernel?

No I don`t. That was also the issue when I used 10.0. When I installed with slacks kernel 2.4.x it detected it as hdx so someone made me a custom cd with 2.6.x and then it worked. I read somewere that slack 10.1 has kernel 2.6.10 if you whant to use it. But can you select 2.6.10 at install instead of the default one?

Maybe that will work. But how do I actualy do it, change kernel I mean?
What should I type at the boot prompt? Now I just typ sata.i and thats it.

In setup when it asks what kernel you want select use kernel from CD and go to the testing folder and select the 2.6 kernel.

Select the configure menu first and pick the right kernel. If not can you find the filename and path of the 2.6 kernel and enter "kernel=" at boot.

Hi

Try booting with sata.s instead of sata.i

It changed the identification of my S-ATA disk to /dev/sda from /dev/hde (se my other thread about SLAMD64).
