I want to install iDeneb on my notebook. I know what i have to have to make it all work but when i launch the install it cant find my SATA HDD nor my disk drive.

I am contemplating on buying a WD My Passport External HDD or something like it.

So my question(s) is how do i get it to detect my HDD and if i cant get it to detect it where would be the best place to pickup a External HDD that doesnt require a separate power source(like the WD My Passport) and that isnt too big im think i only need one thats roughly 160Gb or so.

OR

Is there a Distro someone has used that worked from them when installing it on a notebook of the same series or model?

My notebook has an AMD Processor

Thanks in advance
