What's that "hotplug" thingy of the BIOS? I've never heard before about
If that option was the one making noise and the hard disk controller had
problems at the install stage, it could be due to a BIOS bug/issue.
Also, having the hdd controller set to RAID (fake-raid) can also present
problems for the installer. I prefer to use AHCI, if possible.
