I have a Tyan Motherboard( S2912-E with 2 AMD 8212 Processors. I have tried installing Ubuntu 8.04, 8.10 9.04 as well as 9.10. Only 9.10 seems to detect the Sata Controller (Nforce Pro 3600) and even it hangs during formatting of an ext 3 or ext 4 partition.

GParted seems to have no problem partioning the free space as xfs, jfs or reiser fs. And when I tried to install on the partitions other than ext the install hangs at varing percentages of copying files.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards.
