    Default Many Distrbs doesn't see harddrive

    I'm trying to install 10.5.6 / 10.5.7 on My HP Pavilion dv9000 (dv9608nr) laptop.

    Everything loads fine, go to Hard drive utility and it sees nothing. It did this on iDeneb and iAktos. So I don't know how to proceed with this problem. I can post specs if you guys want.

    Not really sure if this system is compatible but lets try, boot into your dvd, wait for darwin and press F8, then type:

    cpus=1 -v -x
    if it doesnt work try with

    rd= This parameter state what is the boot disk to use (instead of using the boot menu appearing before the prompt) you state the drive and partition in here: diskXsY where X stands for the disk number (first disk, usually primary master in IDE or SATA) 0 second disk is 1 etc.) and Y stands for the partition on that disk starting with 1 as the first partition.
    Ex: rd=disk0s1 If you have one disk and one partition the parameter will look like this.

    Tried that, That didn't work. It doesn't see the hard drive at all. I checked it under System info too.

    Well I'm pretty sure it's the SATA Drivers. Due to the nForce 560/630 chipset on this board. If anybody could help me fix this, I would be very grateful.
