Can't choose device to install to

I used tubgirl's latest install DVD. Everything works fine until I get to the section where I have to choose what device to install OSX on. Nothing shows up, it just stays blank and doesn't let me install OSX on anything. I decided to use parition magic and create about 8.3 of unallocated space, in hopes of that resolving the problem. Unfortunately, it didn't. I have an SATA drive, might that be the problem? I think I read somewhere that PATA is best. Might anyone be able to help me out? Thanks for any help.

Its not that pata is better its just that some sata chipsets arnt supported...!!!


You are a bit vague.. but I would suggest that your sata chipset isnt supported from install.....Nforce??

I would try an IDE h/disk and take it from there...


Maybe if you post some specs, someone with your mobo etc!! will have an answer....
