Thanks for your reply.

If I use Live CD/DVD then will I be able to have virtualization set up
using XEN going forward since it seems Live CD/DVD is meant for Desktops

Most likely the Fedora installer doesn't recognize your SATA controller.

  You're best bet would be to install from a LIVE CD/DVD and see if that

works (more controllers supported in the boot image there), a Fedora 
Unity Respin of F8 (more up-to-date packages, less updates after 
install), or try the F9 Preview (more up-to-date installer).

Again, sounds like the installer is not prepared to recognize your 
particular hardware without extra drivers.  This is all fixable if you 
can get the installer to work.
