    HDD is connected to SATA Port0.

    DVD-/+RW is connected to IDE Primary as Master.

    I also tried Linspire and Red Hat 9. with the same result. But I am using Windows XP and 2k3

    Which version of Ubuntu and Linspire did you try? Red Hat 9 won't detect SATA drives cos it's too outdated. There were no SATA drives at that time.

    They're outdated too and have no support for SATA that's why your hard disk isn't getting detected. You need something recent.

    @ECE0105: search for LUG in your city and get the newest distro.
    or you may order the free Ubuntu 6.06 which will hopefully detect your hardware.

    I have put in a request for the Latest Fedora Core in the Distro Request Thread and hopefully should be getting a Reply.

    Thanks for all your replies guys... Repping you all.
