SATA driver needed?
i'm attempting to install ubuntu on a new computer and having some problems.
first off i'm using 8.4 Desktop 64 bit and have both the standard and alternate desktop CDs burnt. when i use the standard CD i get to the partition screen and there do not appear to be any disks to choose from. when i use the alternate desktop CD i get to about the same point and it prompts me to install a driver for my disk drive. i have no idea which driver i need to choose.
hardware in question is:
moterboard is a:
ABIT IP35 Pro LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard
(i updated the BIOS to the newest version.)
hard drive is a:
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250410AS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
as i side note i installed another OS on this system thinking i might not have set everything up right. the other OS did work, but i would really prefer to use ubuntu.
Re: SATA driver needed?
try changing the Bios settings:
>Integrated Peripherals>On-Chip Sata device
try enabling sata mode 'IDE' instead of 'AHCI' (or vice-versa)
'RAID' mode should be disabled
