Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 227441
installer can't find SATA hard-drives on Asus mobo
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:56 EST
Description of problem:
AMD Athlon 64 X2
Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe
2 x 320GB SATA
I see the installer loading the sata_nv module, but after that, it says:
"Unable to find any devices of type
needed for this installation type.
Would you like to manually select your
driver or use a driver disk?"
On same system, FC6 has a very similar issue, see bug #227186
Ubuntu, Knoppix and CentOS work just fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. just try and install FC7test1
The installer claims it cannot find the two SATA drives on my system.
The installer should detect the drives, just like Ubuntu, Knoppix and CentOS.
Does it work if you manually load pata_amd?
Manually loading pata_amd helps the installer detect the drives correctly.
However, it gets stuck further down the road (at the end of "checking
dependencies in packages selected for installation").
Looks like a different bug, I'll file a separate report.
