Hello,I had this kind of behavior (sata disk detected but not responding), with netinst and 2.6.10. My solution was in the BIOS. I had to disable all kind of ide detection on empty slots and since then it worked perfectly.
I explain: I have an ide disk master on ide0 (no slave), an ide DVD-ROM master on ide1 (no slave), one sata disk on ide2 and no sata disk on ide3. If I prevent the bios from detecting anyway on ide0/slave, ide1/slave and ide3, all is fine !
Hope this helps, GoM Le 1 févr. 05, à 04:01, Dale E. Martin a écrit :
I don't know why it is not working with this debian-installer. It seems to me that the modules sata_nv and libata are loaded, but maybe I needothers?A bug in kernel 2.6. prevent disk from responding if attached to the nforce SATA port. You've been bitten by this bug. Symptoms are : quering the SATA port finds something, but the query of the diks times out. 2.6.10 works ok.I'm typing this on a Shuttle SN95G5 running 2.6.8 with (only) an SATA hard drive. I don't believe I did anything special - the SATA just worked...(I used the sid-amd64-netinst.iso image.)Let me know if there's any other info I can provide that would be of help.Take care, Dale -- Dale E.
