Topic: GParted boot fails: "AHCI controller unavailable"
I've used Gparted from inside Linux, and live on USB and optical disk too, for some time. My old trusty machine boots the live media just fine. I built a nice new Ryzen 7 3700X machine with MSI X570-Pro BIOS. I have disabled secure boot, and set SATA Mode to [AHCI Mode]. I boot into either the dvd or the usb and get the graphical window, hit enter or elect an option, then it goes to the console like expected, thinks a while, then fails with this message:
AHCI controller unavailable
I have tried safe mode and several other options in addition to just selecting the normal way. Maybe someone has seen this error before. Any clues would be appreciated.
Right now I have a dual-boot on the machine with Windows 10 and FreeBSD 13.0 Current. I use Rod Smith's Refind boot manager. All this works with the BIOS just fine, but since I almost weekly wipe & load the weekly FreeBSD 13.0 Current snapshot, GParted can be a big help.
Thanks, Clay Daniels.
