Alright, we found the driver, and we came to the step where we install it, and we found out, it can only be installed from floppy. Alright, we are finding floppy drive and floppy disc, we copy driver to floppy. He takes PC home, hopes to install driver with hitting F6 when it asks for RAID driver. Alright, sometime later, he calls me "Hey, it wont start installation, it says *Press any key to boot from cd...*" :lol:OMG Who did I let to install Windows :wtf::happy:. Alright we go around that problem... and when he presses F6 to install driver from floppy it says "THE FILE TXTSETUP.OEM COULD NOT BE FOUND".
To avoid this issue next time why not use the drivers and nlite and create a Windows CD that you can use. So that way you dont have to give the PC to your friend if you ever have to isntall Windows again.
I have this issue as well. My SATA drivers are not recognized by XP. Only by Vista. So i have to go in and add my sATA drivers to every Windows Disc i want to use. It is a pain but in the end when i have to re-install it is worth it. Just a tip i thought i might share.
i hope the upgrade will solve my ATIdriver problem
Note: my Video card is actually a Radeon 9200, not the radeon X1950 as i said before but im kinda glad i dont have something so powerful, linux support for the newer cards isnt as good as the older ones
as to partitions:
i downloaded, burned and verified the Live CD for fedora 7 however
Gparted can never stop scanning for HD's... i let it sit for about 15 minutes once... i have tried the Live CD three times so far
and GUESS what, fedora 7 has my ATI driver built in.... the installer wont start either
