Fedora Installation :: EIDE Hard Drive Recognized As Sda Hard Drive

May 1, 2010

Trying to install Fedora 12 using the 6 CDs. Trying to install on an older x86 box.Problem is that when detecting my hard drive, Fedora 12 recognizes it as a sda hard drive instead of hda hard drive. I have no SCSI connected to my computer what so ever. It's an old fashion PATA Western Digital hard drive.If I proceed with the install, Fedora 12 only installs 200MB of the OS from the first CD only. No options for additional software or anything.

Ubuntu Installation :: Error (Can't Find Hard Drive)

Jun 15, 2011

I've tried installing Ubuntu from the installation disk, flash drive, and using windows installer. The drive and disk said I didn't have enough memory open to install (I have 160GB open)upon looking around in the demo, i noticed that it couldn't find my hard drive as it wasn't on the drive explorer. So i searched for answers and found a few possible ones but i wanted to find someone with my exact problem--Couldn't find any. So then I came upon the Windows Installer and Tried it out. All went well until i had to reboot, it said it couldn't find the installation.iso (which is indeed on my computer) and that i should run "Chkdsk /r" and i did. Nothing changed. I still believe that Ubuntu can't see my hard drive when windows can, why is this? Is there a way to fix it? EDIT: How could I forget to mention I'm on Windows 7?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To 10.04 On 8Gb USB Hard Drive?

May 11, 2010

I have a Dell Latitude D630 onto which I applied an installation of Ubuntu 9.10 on an 8GB external USB hard disk (mechanical, not FLASH) with now problems. It has been working beautifully, but I upgraded last night to Ubuntu 10.04. I had it run overnight and believe that I ran out of hard disk space, as I have less than 100MB left on the drive.

-I'd like to ensure that the installation completed properly so that I can run it for further modification/repair/reinstall.

-I know that this free space is inadequate and would like to either properly remove unneeded files or restart with a minimal installation of Ubuntu 10.04.

Ubuntu Installation :: Setup Unable To Find Hard Drive

When I start the Live CD I can see my harddrive and access it. But when I start the setup, it cant find the harddrive and I can not choose it.

I upgraded 9.10 to 10.04 via the weekly update reminder. All went went on the install and the GRUB menu looks normal; however, the bottom line is Windows XP and when selected will not load Win XP on a separate hard drive. As soon as I click the XP line, the screen goes blank with a flashing cursor in the top left corner. It remains in that condition as long as the desktop has power. What other information can I provide to get some help bringing up XP?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Start Up Windows On 2nd Hard Drive After Upgrade To 10.04 / Fix It?

Jun 6, 2010

I just upgraded to 10.04. I went with the option of upgrading grub as well, should of just stuck with the old one I guess. I have 2 seperate physical hard drives, and now I can't get vista running on my other drive. I get to grub, choose the run vista option, and now it just blinks one underscore line in the top left corner of the black screen, and goes nowhere. When I was installing the upgrade, and when I got to the grub upgrade i tried to upgrade all teh different options in grub. All of them worked except the last one, and it warned me, that one of boot options in grub didn't install properly and may cause my OS not to start up. I guess that must of been the vista option.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 9.04 To 10.04 Using A Clonezilla Hard Drive Partition?

Apr 1, 2011

I'm trying to "upgrade" from ubuntu 9.04 to ubuntu 10.04.2 via a clonezilla (using a maverick usb clonezilla software with it's vmlinuz and initrd.img). but this clonezilla is not from a bootable usb flash drive, usb drive or CD, it's from the hard drive.

Here's what I have:

1) one 500gig drive with a primary partition under LVM. this partition has a 490gig root partition (ubuntu-root) and a 10 gig swap partition (ubuntu-swap_1). It has an extended partition (/dev/sda2) that's not under LVM consisting of one logical drive (/dev/sda5) that is the /boot partition.

2) I've upgraded the grub to grub2 (version 1.96) which has better features.

3) I've deleted the swap and reconfigured this partition with a name of (livehd) and it has an ext3 filesystem. I've copied the clonezilla software to this partition which also has the ubuntu 10.04.2 image that I want to restore to the root partition.

4) I've modified the existing grub2 using the 40-custom file so that the grub menu has the "Clonezilla Ubuntu 10.04.2 upgrade" entry in it.

5) the initrd.img from clonezilla has LVM support since I opened up the image to a directory using "gzip -d -c /boot/initrd.img|cpio -i" to check it.

6) grub2 sees the (ubuntu-root), (ubuntu-livehd), (hd0,1), (hd0), and (hd0,5) devices and can list (ls) their directories

Ubuntu Installation :: Fan Or Hard Drive Spinning - Upgrade From Karmic 9.10 To Lucid 10.04

May 5, 2010

I have an HP Mini 210 and I recently performed an Upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04 and noticed that the netbook is much more noisy now (and can get very warm). I am not sure wether is the fan or the hard drive spinning. I did a "top" but no process was high consuming. I also thought that maybe compiz could be responsable for it, so I disabled all the visual effects, but still no change.

Fedora Installation :: 13 Installer Can't Find Hard Drives

Sep 3, 2010

The Fedora installer won't display my two SATA hard drives. I've tried both the x86_64 live CD and DVD. On the live CD, fdisk -l displayed nothing. However, if I click "Specialized Storage Devices" a devices shows up as "BIOS RAID set (stripe)" with a capacity equal to both my hard drives. I don't even have RAID enabled in BIOS - it is set to AHCI. Other os installers display the hard drive correctly.

Specs:
2x 640GB western digital caviar blacks
ASUS M4A78T-E 790GX motherboard

Fedora Installation :: 11 Can't See A Hard Drive

Jun 23, 2009

I've been trying to get Fedora 11 (x86_64, netinst) installed on my machine, but am having trouble with the hard drive selection and partitioning. This machine has 2 x 320GB hard drives. One for Windows, and one for Linux of course.

When I first tried the install, both hard drives were attached to the computer. I was expecting to see the drives seperately so that I could partition and install on only one of the drives, but device mapper kicked in and showed me a single 640GB long partition. Not very helpful in my case.

I decided to simply unplug the Windows drive so that fedora didn't see the two identical drives and so would not try to map them. However, with only the linux drive plugged in, the installer doesn't see it. There are no hard drives to select from in the installer.

As a test, I plugged in the windows drive solely and unplugged the linux drive, and low-and-behold, fedora sees the windows drive. This is getting slightly confusing at this point as both the hard drives are identical. I can't see why the installer would recognise one but not the other. Yet it recognises the extra 320GB of hard drive space if both drives are plugged in and device mapper tries to raid them. I tried the debian installer to see if it had the same problem, but it was able to see and install on this drive. I would have tried OpenSUSE as well but this computer doesn't have a DVD drive.

I haven't tried a "nodmraid" boot option yet, so I am going to try that tonight, but I'm interested to hear what the community thinks of this problem.

System Specs:

DFI LANParty UT NF680i LT SLI-T2R
Intel Q6600
Corsair XMS2-800 2x2GB
2 x Seagate Barracuda 320GB

I've also had a 640GB plugged in that was detected fine (probably because dm didn't try to raid it being the odd hdd out) but has been removed while I'm troubleshooting the fedora install.

Fedora Installation :: F11/12 On SB700 \ Cannot Find The Hard Disk In Machine?

Fedora Installation :: F10 Does Not Recognize Second Hard Drive

Apr 1, 2009

There are 3 IDE drives in this box.
hda has Debian Lenny installed (with swap) and is to remain.
hdb1 has a linux distro on it.
hdb2 is a data partition and is to remain.
No other partitions on hdb.
HDD is data only (not really relevant but mentioned for completeness)
The system boots via Grub from MBR on hda.

I'm trying to install F10-i686-KDE-LiveCD on hdb1 but F10 won't allow it without modifying the partition tables which will, of course, wipe my data on hdb2. hdb seems to be a happy disk; e2fsck shows it clean and both partitions open properly in Konqueror within the LliveCD.

Fedora Installation :: Installing Second OS On USB Hard Drive

Nov 7, 2010

I have Fedora 14 installed on my usb drive, works perfectly. What I would like to do is:- install Open Suse on the same drive, sharing the same swap, boot section but splitting or resizing the home partition, can this be done? I installed Fedora by booting up from a disc, plugging in my usb hard drive and then installing to that. Would I follow the same procedure for my 2nd installation, I think so but am open to correction. My laptop bios supports booting from disc and I have some 204 gig of free home space.

Fedora Installation :: New Hard Drive In Laptop - How To Setup

Apr 7, 2009

I am upgrading my old 40G hard drive to a new 160G one and want to know the best way to set it for use with my system. I currently have a Windows partition which I want to keep & reinstate onto the new drive. Then I want to have another 3 partitions for different distros.

What should I do as a first step when I put the drive in boot off a live CD. I am assuming that I will need to do. If I do a, # grub-install, will this then format the MBR and then create a small partition for /boot. Following that, do I just restore the Windows partition immediately after the /boot partition, and then create new partitions for the distros accordingly.

I would also like to create a seperate swap partition and then install F10. Is there an option in Anaconda to not use LVM (can't remember).

Fedora Installation :: FC4 - Installer Does Not Recognize Hard Drive

Apr 18, 2009

I have this laptop that I just reformatted in hopes of doing a dual boot between XP and FC4. It is an Acer Aspire 5315-2153 (the Wal-Mart special). I reformatted the drive; the Windows partition is in NTFS and then I have a 10GB partition in FAT32 for Linux. When I try to install FC4, the disk boots into the installer, then it tells me that it does not recognize any hard drives (the disk in this laptop is a Hitachi HTS541680J9SA00). It asks me if I want to load any drivers, and I tried a few and still no success. Any way, after it goes through that, it tries to start anaconda and after that launches it goes to a black screen and nothing happens. So, did I do anything wrong in the Windows install that won't allow the disk to be found? The XP disk only allows a format in NTFS, otherwise I would have done FAT32 on the whole drive. Second, is the anaconda problem something related to the HDD issue, or does anyone think that it may be a separate issue?
