fedora installer not recognizing SATA

Recommended Posts

Hello

i am trying to install Fedora 6 on the Dell Optiplex box and installer does not recognize the SATA drive.

The BIOS does not have an option to switch to PATA.

Is there a way to upgrade the installer?

Any other solution?

 

thank you

You did not specify what exact Optiplex model that you have, but have you considered Fedora 8, which would likely support your system hardware?

It is Optiplex 775

I actually have Fedora 8 running on it now. The problem is that I have problems with video quality (due to either driver or new Xorg). So I wanted to backtrack to Fedora 6...

 

thnx

I cannot get past 'Select driver' stage at the very beginning. The installer cannot find the hard drive, offers to Select driver, i choose 'ata_piix' and it fails.

 

The box has Q35 chipset and integrated 3100 Intel graphics
