I've just tried installing RHEL 5 using the AHCI setting in BIOS, it does
install but as I said before "reboot and select proper boot device or insert
boot media in selected boot device and press a key" screen appears again,
and did change the AHCI setting to SATA in BIOS, and boots up with a screen
which contains lots of commands/words/keystrings etc.(really don't know the
word for that screen in english) but something caught my attention that is:

Memory for crash kernel (0x0 to 0x0) notwithin permissible range
*PCI: BIOS Bug MCFG area at e0000000 is not E020-reserved*
PCI: not using MMconfig
ACPI: Getting cpuindex for acpiid 0x3
ACPI: Getting cpuindex for acpiid 0x4
