Leopard install does not Recognize my SATA
First of all, this is my first post. And I apreciate any help. I searched for something similar, but nothing answered my problem.
I'm trying to install Leopard iATKOS v5 on my desktop, but it does not see my SATA driver. It (installer) boots normally, but on disk utility only my IDE disk is shown.
I have already tried to enable AHCI (is it?) of SATA compatibility, but it didn't work.
My system configuration:
1) P5VD2-X Asus motherboard
2) Pentium Dual Core 3.0Gz
3) 3Gb RAM DDR 533Mhz
4) 1 HD 250 Gb SATA
5) 1 HD 200 Gb IDE
6) nVidia GeForce 7300 GT
THe motherboard has jMicron, but I never used it and never installed anithying related, on boot it says no drives found.
I need Leopard Installed on my SATA drive....
Do anybody have any clue on how do I have my Leopard running ? PLEASE....
Problems installing Leopard
I have almost the same problem.
My PC configuration is :
MB: ASUS M2V MX
Chipset : VIA K8M890
Procesor : AMD Athlon DualCore 5000+
HDD: SATA WD 250GB
DVDWR : IDE - ASUS
Video: VIA Chrom9 HC IGP
Audio: realtek HD
Network: realtek RTL 8139
Firts of all, I tried Ideneb 10.5.7 on an IDE HDD but I had problems installing the systems.
During those works, my IDE HDD crahed. Now I have a SATA HDD but I can start the installation Disk Utility dosen't se my HDD.
(I tried all the possible combination - seting the BIOS, but still nothing)
I also tried Kalyway 10.5.2 - still nothing.
Can somebody help me to solve the HDD SATA problem?
Same problem... but fixed
I had the same problem. for some reason it was not seeing the sata. I play with the bios for a while and move here and there some cables. then it work. :confused: Can't really explain why or how but I am not making any changes on the set up. I'll say it's a Bios issue easy to fix.
