Personally I have only used Mandriva and Puppy Linux. Both would do want you need it to do.

Hi Folks

I have just installed a new (well, actually used) hard drive into the PC and I'm having a few problems...

The error message on the screen says:

CERC SATA 2S BIOS for Non Hotplug Drives V2.1-11 2024

Press <CTRL> <A> for Adaptec Raid Configuration Utility!!!

Controller #00 CERC SATA 2S at PCI BUS:0, Dev:1F, Func:02
Loading Configuration...at Port 1

FYI it did the same for another drive I used - maybe coincidence or could it be a problem with something else?

Any advice would be appreciated

All the best

DelBoy
