I tried to install Ubuntu GNU/Linux on my brand new computer (not
laptop) and ran into a problem similar to the one described here: my
sata hdd was not detected.

I use a  VIA VT6420 SATA RAID Controller with the RAID option disabled
in the BIOS (thus selecting SATA).

I think the problem is related to bug 7415 of linux: http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7415
There is stated that the bug is fixed in version of linux. Ubuntu 6.10 livecd is running with a 2.6.17 kernel.

So, I am afraid this 'ancient bug' isn't fixed yet :-(

SATA HDD not recognized during Breezy Colony 4 install or Dapper Flight 3
