Thread: RHEL 5 installation

    Question RHEL 5 installation

    Hi everyone, I m new here and I have few questions regarding RHEL installation. The story goes like this...
    I have a PC with the following specifications:
    1. ASUS P5N-MX motherboard with on-board GForce 7050/nforce 610i chipset
    2. Intel Pentium Dual Core Processor
    3. Two SATA HDD(250GB + 160GB)
    4. DDR2 4GB RAM

    Currently I am running Win XP together with FC8(dual boot). I want to install RHEL 5 on my system. I used an installation DVD, the process went on fine from beginning until I reached a point where I am supposed to specify the location on which to install. I chose custom partition as I already have other OSs on my system, then after clicking next I got an error message specifying that redhat could not find disk on which to install and advised me to check my hardware. I know my hardware is just fine because the other OSs are working just fine so I need a help on how I can perform this installation on SATA HDD.

    My guess is the SATA controller on your motherboard isn't supported by RHEL5 by default. I don't really have the time to look in to it for you, but I would suggest running
    lspci | grep -i sata
    under Fedora and then seeing if RHEL5 supports that device.

    Also, which version of RHEL5 are you using?
    63,000 bugs in the code, 63,000 bugs,
    ya get 1 whacked with a service pack,
    now there's 63,005 bugs in the code!!
