View Full Version : [SOLVED] Minimal Command Line Install: Won't see SATA Drive

March 10th, 2012, 11:34 PM
Hi everyone!
I'm trying to do a minimal lubuntu install on a system with an AOpen AK89 Max board in it (It is an Athlon 64 system). Running the command line installer with default settings, it doesn't detect the a SATA HDD. The SATA controller doesn't appear to be tied into the BIOS (the drive isn't detected). And a screen comes up in the boot process allowing me to change the settings of the controller specifically.

I have previously installed successfully on an IDE drive.

Any suggestions on how I might get the installer to see this hard drive?

EDIT: Did not plug molex-sata adapter into PSU. I am not a clever man.
