I can't get the Debian netinst boot disk (AMD 64, v5.7.0-7) to recognise either of the SATA disks in my Mac Mini Server. I had thought that the ATA-PIIX driver was the correct choice, but after failing to detect any disk drive at the "Detect disks" stage, when told "piix" is the needed name, it goes right back to this stage.
Can this boot system recognise this medium? If not, what boot system should I be looking at?
Postscript — whitequark says that PIIX is a PATA driver, sou couldn't drive a SATA drive. I've checked on the System Profiler, which confirms that the drives are mounted on SATA, and are 500 Gb Hitachi drives, model HTS725050A9A362, each with a NVidia MCP89 AHCI controller.
