Can't install because of partitioning or kernel (?)
Hi guys, I've already posted to the regular Ubuntu forums and nobody posts back to help, so I"m trying here. I have a new Sony VAIO S660/B notebook, and I have tried Dapper, Breezy, and even Edgy Beta to no avail. Dapper freezes at 15% of the installation and I have to hard reboot, Edgy's installation freezes as well, but doesn't lose keyboard and mouse response, and Breezy installs all the way until it reboots to finish configuring and I get *ata1: Bug: timeout without command*.I think its because I"m running a SATA hard drive, I've read a lot of troubles with SATA drives and Ubuntu for some reason. I've read to use the "ata_piix" kernel module, but I"m unsure on how to use this while installing Linux, can someone help me and I'll try that? I've already tried the "noapic" and "acpi=off" options at the end of the string when you hit F6 on install. If someone could help me with this, or have any other suggestions, I would be greatly appreciative. Thanks!
