SATA on Fedora help.
I've just purchased SATA harddisk with my ASRock K7S8XE+ board.
I couldn't install fedora into the SATA HD, since it couldn't detect it.
I've tried ASRock's drivers disc and floppy boot up disc, but they are for windows only.
Thanks in advance.
Try a SATA controller that supports linux and has linux drivers...
Which motherboard chipset do you have? I have had success with KT800 VIA chipsets. I only used it with JBOD and I know it supports RAID 1 / 0
Also you may want to check for a RAID BIOS option. I had to initalize a build the JBOD before it would let me install on the SATA disks.
The chipset is...
SiS748 + 964
ASrock told me that for intel chipset, updating the kernel can help.
But the problem is, if I couldn't install fedora, how can I upgrade the kernel?
Since I am new to linux world. If I can't install from CD directly, can I install fedora from Knoppix?
Or can i install fedora into a ide drive, then use norton ghost to copy drive image to sata?
Thanks for helping.
There should be a compatibility mode for your SATA drives in your bios. install support and then switch it all back.

I've already tried different settings with BIOS, no luck.
On the intel side, fedora is ok with SATA.
