I installed on a new machine whose only drive is sata. As I recall the
drive was recognized and my only partitioning problem was with the lvm
partition. I used the regular linux26 kernel.

That is I had no problem after I discovered that I had stupidly failed
to connect the power cable to the sata drive.

Does the BIOS find the drives?
