Redhat Linux doesn't support Sata??





varun_dodla
Hi,
One of my friends has recently bought a HP Pavilion system with Sata hard drive of capacity 80Gb but when we partitioned it and tried installing RH9 it gave an error message saying

"No installation media found"

Is this because of the Sata hard drive?? doesn't RH9 support Sata drives....

Anyone who faced this problem and solved it plz help??

RH9 do support SATA drives.. i have RH linux on my box, and it's SATA drive.

Oh can you please give me details about how to proceed with the installation on a SATA drive system with Windows XP already to load RH9.

Thank you for the same.

HP might use non standard SATA drivers, which would be weird... but it is possible, you might search around on google with the model of your computer and RH9.

Are you installing off of the CD, or some other way?
That error sounds like it could mean that the source of the files could not be found.
Also, are you sure there is nothing wrong with the hardware?

either try a different install cd or check your BIOS and make sure that its still being recognized there, if that doesnt correct it come back and let us know.

Thnq for the suggestions. We tried installing Red Hat Enterprise Edition and it worked fine and now we have linux on the system. Thank you all once again.
