A hard drive behavior setting in the system BIOS must be changed for Linux to boot.
Workaround: For the HP/Compaq DC7100, go into the BIOS and change the SATA Emulation option to "Combined IDE Controller".
Workaround: In the computer BIOS, go to Drives>Drive Controller and change the setting to Combination.
This configures the serial ATA controller's operating mode. Normal enables the serial ATA controller to operate in serial ATA native mode only. Combination enables the serial ATA controller to operate in serial/parallel ATA combination mode.
machines that use SATA II drives may use different terms for this
setting, such as "Legacy"
