Debian Hardware :: HDD Not Recognized In BIOS But Recognized Upon Boot

Sep 18, 2014

I have a backup HDD with a different distro for my laptop and i can boot into it via external usb or if swapped into the laptop. This HDD/install in question is debian testing and was working fine, the issue arose suddenly. I was first suspecting a failure of hardware somewhere on the motherboard, but the hdd i was using with an external usb adapter also works when installed into the machine. also, the HDD is recognized once i have booted using the external HDD and distro, but it is not recognized by the bios. so i dunno, my first guess is something became corrupt within the testing install, but i guess its also possible that there is some wrong with the HDD but thats not immediately apparent as all the data is still accessible.

Should also note that the HDD with testing on it is also recognized when connected via the external usb adapter, while booted from alternative distro/HDD.

Also. just tried this, but i can get the testing HDD/disto to boot if connected externally. it was going pretty quick, but there i did catch a line about a corrupt filesystem. any commands to run to see what might be going on?? log files to look at?

Fedora Hardware :: HDD Not Recognized By BIOS

Feb 17, 2011

I have a Dell workstation that I picked up for free. Most everything thing works, but it will not boot to the HDD (SATA). BIOS does not recognize the drive. I can, however, boot to a live Fedora 12 disk, and from the desktop I can see and write to the HDD. I would like to be able to boot from the disk and upgrade to 14 or whatever.

Ubuntu Installation :: HDs Not Being Recognized By BIOS After Install

May 16, 2010

I've just installed 10.04 twice on 2 separate disks and it seems to have done something really strange to them. BIOS will not recognise them anymore, it just waits but they never come online. I have to unplug the disk completely for the system to boot.The first time I thought I'd just lost a disk, but when exactly the same thing occurred the second time around, it seems like too much of a coincidence.The installer didn't recognise the disks first time around as they were part of a RAID group previously. I did a dmraid -E -r /dev/sda to fix. After that just installed as per every other time I've used.

Ubuntu :: Sd Card Not Recognized - How To Make It Recognized

Jun 2, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 11.04. The drive was formatted when I installed so it's 100% Ubuntu. The only major problem I have encountered is that Ubuntu will not recognize my SD cards. I really need to access these cards, all my film footage is on there. I think the internal SD card reader (If such a thing exists) would have been deleted during the installation process. I am a greenthumb to Ubuntu and have never used it before so I am rather stuck...

General :: Multi Boot Grub - All Systems Recognized But 10.10 Will Not Boot - Cannot Locate The UUID Specified

Dec 20, 2010

Problem: I have installed two Ubuntu servers, 10.04 32-bit and 10.10 64-bit, in a multi-boot environment (also have FDOS and WinXPsp3). The 64-bit will not boot because grub can't find the UUID for the disk with the 64-bit system.

Brief Background: Installed 10.04 LTS two months ago with no problems. 10.04 is in a primary partition on hda with FDOS.

Installed 10.10 (64-bit) in a new primary partition on the same hd. The install seemed to go ok, but the MBR and the fs on the 10.04 were corrupted; could not boot. Restored drive, and rebuilt grub.

Installed 10.10 on separate hd (hdb). In grub step all OS's were recognized so I pointed the grub to hda. Grub failed to boot.

Rebuilt grub from 10.04 on hda. All systems recognized but 10.10 will not boot because it says it cannot locate the UUID specified.

Compared the grub.cfg for both systems, the UUID specified for hdb is the same. Also, when I mount the drive for 10.10 on the 10.04 system the drive UUID is consistent.

I know I must be missing some thing, but I know not what. Have searched and can't find any clues. All other OS's boot ok.

Hardware: AMD64 4GB, 2 internal IDE drives (hda and hdb), 1 internal SATA (hdc WinXP), various USB and Firewire Drives (no bootable systems).

Fedora :: Drive Partition Not Recognized At Boot?

Jan 1, 2010

I have a weird problem with an sata partition. This drive is onle volume of an md raid set, and has one partition filling the whole drive. of type "fd" ( linux raid autodetect). When my machine boots, the drive containing this partition is present as /dev/sdc. However, the partition is not - there is no /dev/sdc1. If I look at the partition table in fdisk, all appears to be fine. If I do anything that causes the partition table to be rescanned (such as writing in fdisk, or running partprobe, ... ), the partition shows up fine at that point and all data is present and when I assemble the RAID using it, its in sync. This drive is attached to the same (motherboard) controller as my other drives which have their partitions recognized just fine.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Drive Not Recognized During Boot

May 1, 2011

rEFIt can not see my USB thumb drive during boot, therefore can't install. Tried using the dd utility to copy the Ubuntu ISO to a spare partition on my internal hard drive. Now, rEFIt sees that drive but attempting to boot into it gives me a 'Missing Operating System' message. So I'm back at trying to get the system to boot from the pendrive.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: External USB HDD Not Recognized At Boot Time

Mar 20, 2011

I am actually working again on a problem i had already on opensus 11.3 (never resolved), and now also after the upgrade to 11.4 .

I do have an external HDD (Samsung STORY Station) usually connected to the linux server. I also have udev rules setup to automount the device on /media/xxx by label.

I used to have my own rules, now have some more coplete from the internet.

When I now reboot the server, the "sd*" device for story station is not created, and obviously not mounted.

If however I do switch of th estory station after reboot, and turn power on again, the device is configured and properly automounted as by udev rules.

Also during the boot the device is seen as from boot.msg:

<6>[ 1.444939] usb 2-2: New USB device found, idVendor=04e8, idProduct=5f06
<6>[ 1.448686] usb 2-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=11, SerialNum
<6>[ 1.452462] usb 2-2: Product: Samsung STORY Station
<6>[ 1.456217] usb 2-2: Manufacturer: JMicron

P.S.: I used th esearch function and google, but did find many similar articles but nothing matching my scenario. So I hope I did not miss something obvious.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Keyboard Presence Not Recognized At Boot?

Jun 19, 2011

Increasingly over time, i.e., days I experience that the keyboard (and mouse) is not recognized when booting.Now it's every time I boot. However, there is a fix. If I plug out, and immedeatly plug in again the keyboard connector everything is fine, except that keyboard short cuts not always work depending on application. In the mouse case the right mouse button doesn't respond either. Besides these effects the system, openSuSE 11.3, boots fine. It's a hazzle everytime to plug in and out again. I'm opting for another fix. Nothing suspicious in /var/log/messages. I've tried to see if there is a particular led light sequence on "num lock", "Caps lock", "Scroll lock" that I can get som info from, but I haven't been successful.Anyone got a suggestion to what might be the cause of this behavior?

Keyboard is kwd-205
Mouse is Microsoft wheel optical mouse

Ubuntu Installation :: XP Partition Is NOT Recognized - Cannot Dual Boot?

Feb 22, 2010

Absolute newbie to Linux (assume I'm a complete dummyhead. I don't understand anything about Linux.). Just bought 500GB HDD. Made 3 partitions, 1 for Linux, 1 for Windows, and 1 for data.

1st, installed Win XP on 2nd partition (NTFS)
Then installed 64-Bit Ubuntu on 1st partition (Ext4)
(Created a 2 GB partition and for the swap file.)

Not sure which partition is primary, extended, etc., never really understood all that stuff anyways. XP was working perfectly, till I installed Ubuntu. Now, it just boots straight into Ubuntu, doesn't give the option to boot into XP. Tried everything I know, but it will not give the option to go into XP.

Ubuntu :: Dual Boot - Partition Not Recognized In Windows

Jul 3, 2010

I'm running a dual boot of Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7. For months now everything has been just wonderful. Recently, however, I tried to add another partition (in windows) and saw that my Ubuntu partition is recognized as RAW. I formatted it as NTFS originally. In Ubuntu, it is recognized correctly (ext4). I don't know what's going on. I'd like to be able to install drivers to recognize this partition in Windows. Will I have to reformat? I'm not sure if it's at all connected, but probably worth mentioning: while booting into Ubuntu, I received an error about "usplash mode failed." It also said something about "mount of filesystem failed." (I really, really wished I had written down the error message.) Everything seems to work now.

Debian Hardware :: USB 3.0 Drives Are Recognized As USB 2.0

OpenSUSE Install :: Wireless Keyboard Not Recognized In First Boot Screen

Mar 1, 2010

I have a Microsoft Wireless keyboard / mouse which I use for my Windows world. I have tried booting the OpenSuSE 10.2, 11 DVDs, but none of them recognize the wireless keyboard that I have connected and I am unable to proceed with the installation because, the default selection in OpenSuSE's first installation screen is *Boot from HardDisk* I also tried using the Ubuntu Live CD that I had, the same problem of keyboard not recognized, but the lucky part was, the first screen in the live CD was a language selection and the default language was English and timed out and moved onto booting the Live CD. Once the booting was over, the wireless keyboard and mouse worked like a charm!

Debian :: Scanner No Longer Recognized After Update

Nov 30, 2015

I am running Wheezy 7.9 32 bit, with the kernel Linux 3.2.0-4-686-pae, and Gnome 3.4.2 on an Intel Pentium CPU G3420 @ 3.2 GHz. I installed a new printer in August, an HP Officejet 7612 all-in-one printer/scanner/copier, and it worked perfectly as both a printer and a scanner first time, despite not being listed on the supported list in SANE. Two weeks ago, I got a general software update notification, and did the update. Now the scanner is not recognised. The printer still works fine as a printer, but when using Simple-scan, I get the error message "No scanners detected. Please check your scanner is connected and powered on". I have had a look round on Google, and all the suggestions made do not work.

I tried the suggestion to add myself to the scanner users list on my PC which made no difference (even though the scanner previously worked without my being added to the scanner users list).

I have deleted the printer and re-installed it using CUPS, but that still has no effect. I tried re-installing HPLIP also to no avail, and I have now lost the toolbox on the drop down menu under <Applications> <Accessories> <HP Toolbox>, as when I click on it, nothing happens.

It would seem that something in the update has messed up Simple-scan. Looking at the dpkg log (is this the right thing to look at?) for the date of the update, I cannot find anything which directly involved SANE, so I think that it might be something else which has affected SANE. How I can find out which update did the damage? I don't normally do anything except accept recommended updates, so I am a bit lost as to what to do.

Debian Hardware :: Some Keystrokes Not Getting Recognized By System

Mar 4, 2016

I'm using Debian (Stetch at the moment). Since a couple of days i noticed that some keystrokes get not recognized by the system, which is really annoying if i type something. It also happens sometimes that a random key gets pressed. For example if i want to type "Hello world", I get "Helllllllllllllo, world", the system would print the "l" character, for example, as long as i don't press any other key. I have a similar problem with my mouse, sometimes it would just get stuck and would not recognise any movement or key presses for a couple of seconds.

Debian Hardware :: Sansa Fuze V2 Not Being Recognized Over USB?

Sep 20, 2010

First some background info:The Sansa Fuze seems to have rather spotty USB performance for Linux users based on what I've been able to find on the internet. I got one brand new a few weeks ago, and it half worked for me. By "half-worked"ean it would show up eventually (maybe after a few seconds delay, or after running lsusb multiple times), and sometimes it would suddenly disconnect (tons of bad block messages in dmesg) and come back a minute or two. In any case it was definitely not the nice reliable behavior one sees from normal USB flash drives, which is what MSC is supposed to be. This went on until I decided to rockbox it.

The installation went well using the RockboxUtility, but the USB recognition seemed (by my impressions, not hard data) to become even more spotty, so I decided to remove Rockbox (using the same utility), and did a manual firmware upgrade to the latest version (by copying the extracted fuzpa.bin to the root of the Fuze filesystem) to get rid of the Rockbox bootloader. Ever since then, the Fuze has stopped being recognized anywhere, although it retains its ability to charge from USB ports. Windows 7 is completely unaware when I plug in the Fuze. In Debian, sometimes I can coax the Fuze itself to show the Connected screen, but the system doesn't realize it and the most I ever see in dmesg are lines about new Sandisk device followed immediately by a line about USB device disconnect.

At this point I don't really know what to do so I am asking for suggestions of any kind.
One idea I had is to redo the firmware upgrade, but the catch is upgrading the firmware requires USB access. Is there a way (maybe using mknod or some kludge) to manually create a /dev/sd? device for me to mount the filesystem? If it matters I use thunar's volume manager handle usb devices. On the Fuze I've always used MSC mode

EDIT: an update
I started a watch 'dmesg | tail' going and then plugged my Fuze in and got the following:

Ubuntu Installation :: Network Drivers Not Recognized On Windows 7 After Dual Boot

I have a HP g6t, previously fully running 11.04. I wanted to root my HTC evo 4g so I decided I *needed* to install windows 7. I created a 20GB partition with gParted, then downloaded and burned .iso of windows 7 my laptop came packaged with (windows 7 home premium 64-bit). However, after installing, Windows now refuses to recognize ANY of my network drivers. This means my ethernet connection (was plugged in during set-up) as well as my wireless card.

Debian Configuration :: Touchscreen Clicks Not Recognized Properly

Apr 1, 2014

I've got a problem with touchscreen (NNK Switches 5.7" model: FT-CU04B). It is not supported under Linux, but I managed to get it working with usbtouchscreen module, after some modifications of course. It gets recognized by system now, it is possible to calibrate it correctly through xinput_calibrator but it isn't possible to "left click with it". I know that it's weird so I want to make myself clear - touchscreen recognizes touch - when touching button for example, it reacts with "going down" but when I'm releasing button, it "goes up" again, without action. I've tried mapping left mouse button with xinput set-button map 1 0 0 0 0 0, but without success, buttons remain "unclickable".
