What version of Linux do you install?
You can convert (as workaround) the disk to "legacy" in bios and it'll work.

Re: Not able to install linux on Presario V3000

If you don't need RHEL for a specific reason, try Ubuntu linux instead. I haven't used it on your particular model, but it's incredibly easy to install, use and maintain, and it should install on your SATA drive without giving you headaches.

The standard Ubuntu release includes Gnome. If you prefer KDE, download the Kubuntu installation disk.
