http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi gang, Trying to install SUSE on a perfectly working PC that was running Windows. Blew away all the partitions and formated the drives. When trying to install SUSE, Installer will not detect my two hard disks. Tried with version 10.x, 11.1 and 11.2, without success. My Mobo is a XFX GeForce 8209, and my SATA drives are both Seagates (1x120GB, 1x320GB). I've tried different SATA mode selection (i.e. SATA, AHCI, and RAID) without any success either. I've tried to look for SATA controller drivers for my Mobo, to try to load on Installer startup, but failed there too. Need your help here.... Thanks, (Distributions)
