Re: install squeeze con core i5 2500 motherboard 1155

Camaleón, maybe it's a bug with de motherboard, besides that,
i also prefer to build software raid before using the chipset's "fake raid".

I cannot find what's that hotplug stuff in the motherboard manual.
Will have to look on asus site.

Well, i got an ASUS P8H67-M LX with H67 B3 revision intel chipset
with a core i5 2500 .

The machine has 3 Samsung 1TB disks , that i see on the bios config,
connected to sata 3gb ports .

After inserting an usb stick with realtek firmware-realtek 0.28,
config the network, I'm stuck on Scanning disk on starting up the
partitioner on 50 % progress : it's stalled .
Do you see any messages about the disks in the syslog?
lee, i didn't take a look at syslog. dmesg showed they were there.

What i ended doing, was play with the hotplug option for each disk on
the bios, and it worked. I have the system running, but i'm now trying
to learn what that option means . I don't think it's a real hotplug
thing, as changing drives without shutting down the computer. Actually
got it working setting two of the drives with hotplug on and one off .
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.
