There is no other option besides 640x480 in Monitor setting.

Hello, some new development..

In the end it might be related to an SSD disk itself. I have connected old SATA drive to it, without changing anything else, and Peppermint recognized it just fine.

It was (non SSD) HITACHI_HTS54251 drive.

Advanced Topics / Problem recovering from a Sleep mode
« on: July 01, 2018, 08:55:59 am »
Hello,
I did fresh install of Peppermint 9 and everything seems to work good except recovery from a sleep mode.

After I close a lid, laptop goes into sleep mode as expected, but when I open it again I'm mostly stuck with a garbled screen, or sometimes mouse cursor is missing, for some reason.

My laptop specs,

Installation / Re: Peppermint won't recognize my SSD disk
« on: June 27, 2018, 06:05:47 pm »
is this an SATA SSD connected via an SATA --> IDE adapter ?

Or is it connected via an SATA connector ?
Yes, the SATA connector.

Quote
So what options are available under  "SiS Serial ATA Mode" ?
As I mentioned before, it's "RAID" and "IDE".

do you get any output from:

Code: [Select]
lsmod | grep sata_sis
I get,
Code: [Select]
sata_sis        16384   0
Quote
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe sata_sis
then checking in Gparted allow it to see the drive ?
It does not, unfortunately.

On the last of your blue pics, if you hit "R" is there a way to remove the disk from the RAID array ?
No, no such option there, only warning about not having enough harddrives to create RAID array.

Let me add something I was able to find regarding the SiS 180 RAID Controller.

https://ata.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Hardware,_driver_status#SiS_180-182
http://zgp.org/mirrors/linuxmafia-faq/Hardware/sata.html#sis
and https://web.archive.org/web/20100330201237/https://www.sis.com/support/support_faqs_16.htm

There are some drivers listed on the current official SiS website too.

Support for SiS 180/181/182/1180/1182/1184 SATA Controller Driver.

1. Unzip the archive.
2. CD to the unzipped folder
3. Type "make" to compile SiS SATA driver.
4. Type "make install" to deploy the driver.
5. Type "modprobe sata_sis" to load the driver.
6. Type "rmmod sata_sis" to unload the driver.

Thanks all for the welcome :)

After giving it another thought, I agree with PCNetSpec that it probably isn't an SSD driver issue, but it still probably is a SATA RAID Controller driver issue.

Thing is, I could not find an AHCI option in BIOS. All more or less relevant screen pics below.



On the third picture is SATA mode setting which can be changed from RAID to IDE (not AHCI). However I still wasn't able to see my drive after changing it to IDE. :(

Here is GParted and system information AndyInMokum requested. (Sorry for not posting it as text, this was far more convenient for me at the moment).



And finally some screens from a Windows XP system already installed on the drive.



(I don't plan to make a dual boot setup)


Thank you for taking a look :)

Hi, I'm trying to install Peppermint 8 on a computer based on this old mainboard http://www.foxconnchannel.com/ProductDetail.aspx?T=Motherboard&U=en-us0000162

Peppermint installer does not recognize there is any drive present, probably due to missing drivers. However I was able to install WinXP on it with integrated SIS RAID Driver.

Foxconn website does not list any Linux drivers. Is there some way to make Peppermint work with this mainboard + SSD drive?

Thank you
