    Most motherboard manufacturers don't advertise explicit Linux support. If you can boot up the live CD ("Try it") then it must have SOME support for the motherboard. This is an old motherboard so is probably supported by now.

    Try to figure out why your hard drive isn't recognized. If you boot the live CD, open the Terminal program and type

    Code:
    ls /dev/disk/by-label/
    What are the results?

    I have a Biostar motherboard with the same AMD 770 chipset and it works well. If the motherboard cannot physically see the disk, then it has nothing to do with the operating system.
    What make/model of hard disk is it? What size is the disk?
