This is the error message I get as soon as the installation disc loads up. The CD works in other computers but not my new custom build. Here's the hardware:

Asrock h61m/u3s3 motherboard (latest bios)
Intel i5-2500 quadcore processor
AMD Radeon HD 6850 graphics card
asus DRW-24B1ST cd/dvd r/w
Gskill 2x2GB DDR3 ram

We have the same challenge.

Were you able to solve it? did not see any replies to your post.

Others have posted that when they have 6GB/s SATA-III drives connected to their PCs, the Ubuntu installer refuses to see the drives.

It may be that it doesn't have drivers that support accessing those drives.

I have the exact same problem trying to install 10.04 on dual boot.

Motherboard: Gigabyte H61M-D2P-B3
Processor: Intel i3-2100 3.1GHz
Video: Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS
Memory: Kingston 2X2GB DDR3

Edit: By the way, I did checked the md5sum, so I don't think is a bad CD

Any ideas?

Searching on Google for "SATA III Ubuntu" produced the following links, both solved their SATA III and Ubuntu problems.
