I just was rebuilding a Vostro the other day, and had all *kinds* of
grief, including it hanging on the way up... until I went into the BIOS,
and in "integrated peripherals", I think it was, saw "SATA Mode", and it
was set to IDE. ONLY when I arrowed down to that option did I see info on
the side saying it was for "XP, Vista and <older? newer?>. The other
option was RAID. I set it to that... and the install went with no

Then there was the older rackmount I rebuilt a few months ago, that I had
to unset an option that was *only* for OS/2....

Have you <alt-F3> or <alt-F4>, and seen what it's logging?
