Ubuntu Installation :: Setup Unable To Find Hard Drive

Dec 7, 2010

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. Ive tryed more than one cd's and another distro (built on Ubuntu). The hard drive works fine, Ive got Windows 7 already on it (help me change back to linux). I know the computer works fine as I once used another computer to install ubuntu on the harddrive and then moved the harddrive to my computer.

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 :: Windows Is Unable To Find Any Hard Drives?

Nov 18, 2010

I had installed windows XP and then Ubuntu a few months ago. I was mostly using Ubuntu only. My Ubuntu is up to date. Windows XP got the blue screen and i had to re-install it. So, i used the Disk Utility and formatted my C-drive as NTFS with a boot flag.

After that, when i attempted to install windows XP on my C-Drive that i just formatted, Windows Setup is unable to recognize any drives! I really don`t want to uninstall Ubuntu or format my whole HDD, just to install windows XP. But i also want to install windows XP as i have to run some applications in it!.

Ubuntu Installation :: New Hard Drive, Unable To Boot On CD?

Mar 7, 2010

I had a little mission this week-end = my girlfriends 250Gb SATA hard drive laptop crashed this week (video card failure), and I wanted to help her by getting all her valuable data on an old Pachard Bell EasyNote laptop I have hanging around.One big problem : this laptop does not boot on CD drive, nor USB drive, and does not have a Floppy slot. There is an old hard drive with a lot of bad sectors in it, and I have a 80Gb IDE drive I want to put in.

My tools : a SATA to USB adapter, a IDE to USB adapter, a Ubuntu 9.10 LiveCD, a Windows7-run netbook, and the web.My goal : to configure the hard drive in some sort for it to install Ubuntu on boot (much like when you buy a laptop : the OS installs on first boot).I quickly found this to be impossible, as there is no Ubuntu pre-install format available (or that I found). So the next step was to get a complete install on the new hard drive, one way or another.First I tried cloning the 250SATA drive on the 80GB IDE drive, but this clearly led to an error (Grub error 18. It was looking for a 250Gb drive where I only fed him 80.)

Next step was to get some kind of LiveCD-like boot from the hard drive. This is made possible by using the UNetBootIn tool and the related Ubuntu Documentation. I met some problems during the real Ubuntu Install at the point where the laptop tried to format the drive the CD image was on. This other Ubuntu Guide gives a few workarounds and tweaks for that situation, but they didn't solve the issue for me.Final idea was to Live-CD like boot from the rubbish hard drive and install the system on the new hard drive plugged in through USB. This failed because the computer does not boot LiveCD-like on the old hard drive...

I'm kinda stuck on what to do now. I still don't have a nice boot on the computer (only a Live-CD like obtained with the UNetBootIn tool), and am still not capable of doing a "real" install on the Laptop.I'm aware that solving the boot-from-cd issue would bring me a faster solution (maybe!), but the idea was to get a hang on this so that I can install Ubuntu on my CD-free netbook soon (Although my netbook might very well boot on USB, but still).My final and last idea is to go buy some kind of adapter that would let me plug the two hard drives into the laptop at the same time, LiveCD-like boot on the new one, install Ubuntu on the old one (connected directly via IDE) and then clone the old one to the new one. But I wish I don't have to go to that extreme ;o)Writing this I just thought of one thing : I could install Live-CD like Ubuntu on a flash drive, launch it on my netbook and install Ubuntu on the new hard drive connected through USB... Would that work?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Detect Hard Drive

Aug 3, 2010

my last hard drive had bad sectors so we got a new hard drive from newegg. this is a brand. new. hard drive. never been formatted before. so i started with the windows setup disc to get it to partition the drive and give kubuntu (working off 10.04 its ordered from canonical) something to work off. it still didn't work. so i got gparted on here to see if it could - im running off the live cd - do anything with it and i find that kubuntu doesn't even recognize there is a hard drive there. i got into the terminal to check the sudo lshw -C disk thing and it swears 'C' is my cd drive.

My bios is also as high as it can go, they stopped making my board. so. any ideas? i cannot install windows as i have lost the key so getting this installed and fixed has to be done through ubuntu on a live cd.

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.

SUSE :: Unable To Boot Properly - System Is Unable To Read Startup Information From Hard Drive

Jan 19, 2011

I am running the latest suse release downloaded directly from their website. I ran the installation after buring the dvd and everything seemed to be working fine. after the installation i ran updates and used it for a little bit. When i shut it down that night and went to restart it I got an error that stated the OS wasnt there. I then went through the installation and everything and it retained the information from the installation before (web history etc.) but for some reason every time I reboot or shut it down the system is not able to read the startup information from the hard drive and will not come on without me re installing it.

Ubuntu :: Lsusb Won't Find Hard Drive After Boot?

Feb 24, 2010

I've been having some trouble getting my two external USB hard drives to mount on boot. They are not recognized by lsusb after a boot, but after they are power cycled or unplugged & replugged they will show up in lsusb and mount. One odd thing I noticed was that when one of the drives was moved to a different port before booting it would be recognized for that boot onlyI have tried adding usb_storage to /etc/modules and doing a update-initramfs to my kernel (2.6.31-14) to no avail.

Since I started having this problem, I have reinstalled ubuntu on a different internal drive, and this did not fix it.I'm not sure if this matters, but the UUIDs of the two drives are identical. I would try reformatting one of them but its quite inconvenient. My /etc/fstab is set up to mount them using their labels (ex1 and ex2) rather than the UUID, and I can mount them both at the same time

Ubuntu :: Find Files On Computer And Put Them Into Hard Drive?

I have posted in regards to fixing some problems I had after running recoverjpeg, and most are fixed. However, this process (recoverjpeg) continues to find pictures and dump them into my hard drive. I am fighting an uphill battle. Is there a way to stop a program from running continuously? I removed the package, but it continues to find files on my computer and put them into my hard drive, which is a problem.

Ubuntu :: 9.1 Unable To Install On Second Hard Drive

Jan 2, 2010

Am trying to install Ubuntu 9.1 on hard drive 2 rather than hard drive 1(7 year old XP machine with 74 GB drive 1) Hard drive 2 is a Firewire-connected External Western Digital.)

with only a 41 MB partition avaialble for Linux).

Allocations are:

After install finsishes the boot process fails with:

Restored the MBR from a Windows CD, and thinking the boot loader needed to be in the MBR area of sdb, installed again with "Install Boot Loader" specified as sdb. Same results.

Restored the MBR and installed again with "Install Boot Loader" specified as hd0. Same results.

Restored the MBR and installed again with /boot allocated on sda2 (the 41 MB partition on the first hard drive). "Install Boot Loader" specified as hd0.

Booted successfully, but when installing updates, there was insufficeient space in the boot partition and could not restart.

Ubuntu 9.1 uses GRUB2 for the first time, so thinking "perhaps there's a glitch", installed Ubuntu 8.04 with the first set of specs described above - except "ext3" instead of "ext4". Got "Error 21" from GRUB which is the same as "no such disk".

Ubuntu Servers :: Windows XP Disc Wouldn't Find Sata Hard Drive

Apr 10, 2011

I'm trying to get my work's infrastructure built at home before I go up there and show the boss. It is as follows: VMware esxi installed on the server with:

Windows server 2008
Ubuntu 10.04 server

I've got VMware installed. And I have spent the past 7 hours trying to figure out how to manage it. I found out that vsphere has not nor will ever be supported for Linux; which was my first problem.

Second Problem So I had to dig around for a spare Windows 7 dvd. To my UN-surprise it blue screened before it even got to the Windows installer.

Third Problem So I dug around for my Windows XP disc. Wouldn't find my sata hard drive and I wasn't about to dig around for a floppy drive and disk, in order to install it.

Fourth Problem I remembered that I had a dual boot of Windows 7 downstairs and proceeded to download and install vsphere. It wouldn't install because of some updates that needed to be installed. I installed them and got vsphere installed as well. However upon connecting to my vmware esxi, there was yet another error that had to do with some update. I found out that the error had been existent since 2009 and for some reason NO ONE at VMware has fixed it....

Ubuntu :: Cannot Format FC Hard Drive - Unable To Read

Sep 8, 2010

Below is results from attempt at formatting my hard drive. As you can see a driver is installed, but not working. Perhaps something is missing? Seems a bit odd that a "unable to read" comes back when disk data is reported. The drive just went through a low level format. BTW this is a fiber channel drive. Also on board are 5 scsi drives. Adaptec raid card. Not sure if that would have any relevance, but there you are.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing 11.04 On External Hard Drive Drive?

Jun 19, 2011

I would like to install Linux Ubuntu 11.04 on an external hard drive - its partitioned and ready for Linux.I've downloaded and burnt the .iso file to a DVD so its all good so far...First of all... is this possible without messing up my macbook? I don't particularly want to break into my macbook to disconnect the hard drive (I read on a tutorial for a previous version of Ubuntu that I'd have to do that... - does it still apply to 11.04?) - as it voids the warranty (I checked ).The reason I ask this is because I had a friend who partitioned their internal hard drive and installed Ubuntu on it. But after installation was complete they couldn't boot up Windows 7 or Ubuntu... and it resulted in them having to clean install Windows 7... - I don't want to end up in that situation

Second... If it is possible to install it without messing up my macbook... - Do I just follow the install instructions but just make sure that where possible I make sure that everything is installed on my external hard drive?...I really need someone to put my mind at rest that everything will run smoothly and that I'll be able to run Mac OS X as usual but also that I'll be able to boot from my external hard drive to run Ubuntu.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Unable To Install 14 On Hard Drive

Mar 21, 2011

I successfully created a live usb to boot fedora but, i want it installed on my hard disk.

So now i am in Fedora (via a (live fedora installed) usb).

I have created a 5GB (unallocated) partition on my 500GB hard disk.

Currently there are 4 partitions on my hard disk -

(assume original size)
C: of size 53GB.
D: of size 210GB
E: of size 210GB
G: of size 10GB to boot ubuntu(not installed).

AND a 5GB unallocated as i have stated above.

I am new to the installation of fedora to hard drive.So while clicking Install to hard drive i am stuck on the type of installation menu screen.

I dont know which one to select.i did checkout each one but after clicking for example replace existing linux system(s) what i get to see is only 2 hard drives/files on the left table.

1> my hard drive - detected as complete 500GB of space.
2> my 4GB Kingston pen drive on which my fedora live image is installed.

Then after reading the forums, i came across people asking for the output of the command sudo fdisk -l.(l means small L)

So i typed it in the terminal and this is what i got - Code: [liveuser@localhost ~]$ sudo fdisk -l

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.

liveuser is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.

I want to install Fedora 14 on my 5GB unallocated partition.
