What's that "hotplug" thingy of the BIOS? I've never heard before about 
that :-?

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.
