I had to install Redhat Linux 8.0 on Dell Optiplex GX 270. The machine did not have any PS2 ports and the linux install did not detected the USB keyboard and mouse natively. I therefire installed using linux noprobe option. The installation went fine and displayed the successful message after the installatrion. However on reboot, the boot sequence stucks on following:

ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14.

before this there was one more message which might give some hint:

PCI_IDE: unknown IDE controller on PCI bus.......

Can anyone please help me to resolve the issue.
