Description of problem:
I am trying to install Fedora on this machine (see info in the attached files).
Fedora fails to recognise the harddrive of the machine --> only the usb stick i am booting with is found. On IRC people told me that it is probably a problem related to bad support for nvidia chips. Dmesg lists some errors/warnings (see attachments).

Sorry. I forgot to add the info that the drive is detected by Windows XP that already was installed.

I just noticed that abrt noticed the problem too. I told it to log it into the file i just uploaded.

I cannot change anything in the bios related to the sata port except setting a password.

I just thought about checking the other drives (only cd drive). It does not get detected as well...
Attached output of ls /dev.
Switching SATA Controlled Mode to "Enhanced" in the bios fixed the issue for me.
Marking as not a bug though it would be nice if it could work without bios tinkering
