Re: Installing Debian

Hi guys,

I'm trying to install the latest Debian stable on my stock PC with a
64-bit Celeron and a VIA motherboard. The installer is not detecting my
SATA hard disk. I also tried manually selecting the sata_via module,
without success. What can I do?

Thanks in advance for your help,
