Re: SATA Driver For Linux Enterprise 4

Is it asking for the CDROM driver or the sata disk driver? If it is the CDROM driver try loading the generic ide cdrom driver. I have had similar problem in the past where the install cd/dvd would boot, but then not detect the cdrom to do the actual install and drop to an ncurses menu.

If it is the disk you might need to look and find out what kind of controller the board uses then load that driver.

Do you have the model number of the Intel Motherboard?
