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

Debian Installation :: Installer Does Not See Hard Drives

May 20, 2015

I'm trying to install jessie on a new computer, but the installer does not see the hard drives. I copied the DVD-1 iso to a usb stick with dd (also tried the netinstall) and it boots, but when I get to partitioning, it only sees the usb drive. If I go to another virtual console and run dmesg or fdisk -l, all drives are seen correctly.

Back up a little - at first I tried the on-board raid, but when the installer couldn't see the drives, I went back into the bios and reset the sata mode to ahci. I've got it set to use bios/legacy OS, or whatever it's called, fast boot is disabled. Even if only one drive is connected, the debian installer does not see it. Then I read up on the fake raid I was trying to use and decided to go with software raid. Can't do that if there's no hard drives listed in the partitioner.

My own installer (refractainstaller) does work, and I've installed jessie with it a couple of times onto one drive, but I really wanted to use raid and lvm, and my installer doesn't do either of those things. No optical drive, but if that's the only way to install, I'll pull the one from my current box and use it for the install. I think I still have a blank CD or DVD lying around.

Hardware:
ASUS H97-PLUS LGA 1150
Intel core i3 (the cheapest one at newegg)
WD Black 1TB drives (2)
GSkill cheap memory, which already passed a memtest.

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!.

Fedora :: Can't Find Two Hard Drives After Installing F11 X86_64

Nov 13, 2009

I recently installed Fedora 11 x86_64 (dual boot with XP) and am having difficulty finding two of my three hard drives to mount them. This is my setup: 80 GB Hard drive (boot drive) with two partitions, one for XP (NTFS) and one for F11 (ext4). 2x250 GB Hard drives, one is formatted with NTFS, the other one has yet to be formatted (my plan is to use ext4).

All of my drives are SATA, on the same nVidia controller. After the install, I can see only the 80 GB hard drive (both partitions). What do I need to do to find the other two drives? During the install, it called the partitions /dev/sda0, sda1, sda2 and sda3, but I no longer see these drives. If I knew where the drives were I could mount them, but my systems just isn't seeing the drives.

This is the output of df:

Code:

Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/vg_user-lv_root

General :: Why Doesn't The Ubuntu Installer See All The Hard Drives

Jan 12, 2011

I'm trying to setup a dual boot system with Windows Vista 64 (already installed) and Ubuntu 10.10. I added a new drive which is identical to the one Vista is installed on. When I boot into the LiveCD I can see and mount the second drive and edit it in Gparted. However, when I use the installer it will only bring up the drive that already has Vista installed.

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?

Fedora Installation :: 13 Installer Don't Detect Usb Hard Disk

Oct 12, 2010

I have a ssd cosair harddisk with both usb and sata connecters. If I connect it with sata anything is working fine, and I managed to install Fedora core 13.

But I also want to be able to use the harddisk when it is connected with usb and that causes problems.

When I boot the Fedora Core 13 dvd It can't detect my usb harddisk.

When booting in install mode it just don't detect the harddisk.

When booting the dvd in rescue mode it don't detect the harddisk, and it don't create any entries in /dev/ for the harddisk. It is like there is no disk at all.

I have tested this on 3 different computers, so it is not a problem with my specific motherboard. So either it is a problem between my harddisk and Fedora Core 13, or there is some problems with the usb drivers in the boot image used by the Fedora core 13 dvd.

The disk is working fine if I connect it via usb to an existing Windows install, so the usb connection is working.

I installed Fedora core 13 with the harddisk connected to sata and then re-connected the harddisk to usb. It then boot up, but complain about missing root filesystem. Most likely caused by missing usb driver in my kernel.

But anyway, what I really want is the ability to boot from both sata and usb, so I can take the harddisk with me and boot it on other computers with usb.

So is there a command which allows me to build an kernel image which can boot from usb or am I trying to do something which is not really supported?

I did update my fstab to use LABEL=myroot

There is 1 Windows partition(NTFS) and 1 linux partition on the disk. (No seperate /boot partition and no swap)

Ubuntu :: Can't Find One Of Hard Drives

Sep 27, 2010

Earlier I had two physical hard drives in my computer, one with Windows and one with Ubuntu. Now I have a new computer and have installed these hard drives in it. I run Windows 7, and I can find the Windows disk, but not the Ubuntu disk. This doesn't surprise me, as Ubuntu is another filesystem, however, earlier I could format it with a partition manager, but now I didn't even find it with that!

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Not Seeing Drives Correctly?

Jun 19, 2011

I have 2 identical hard drives that was used as a RAID0, the raid array was removed, and confirmed the removal with the raid utlity. Bios settings are not set to raid. So one hdd has WinXP occupying it, and I want to use the other hdd for ubuntu. For some reason, ubuntu installer still sees it as an array of both hdds. Gpart see them as both array and individual drives. Does anyone know how to correct this? M

Fedora Installation :: Dual Boot Vista - No Hard Drives Or Partitions Are Shown

Feb 9, 2009

i'm tying to dual boot Vista64 (already installed) and Fedora 10 x86_64. I am running a Dell XPS 410 running 2 sata hard drives raid 0 (ICH8DH). I started the process by shrinking my C drive on disk0 leaving 64.45GB of unallocated space. Next I rebooted into Fedora install DVD and when i get to blue graphical install screen i get message asking if my drive is GPT and if it is it may be corrupted. I click NO, and it comes up with a message telling me i have to initialize my drive if i want to use it ( have to click NO twice) and if i do it i will lose all my data.

i can click no and keep proceding through the install until i get to the partition setup screen. No hard drives or partitions are shown. I've tried googling the problem and get bits of pieces of information scattered in different parts but nothing conclusive to my problem i think. As far as my background of knowledge goes, I'm new to the linux community but give me a thorough guide and i'll do fine (i hope). I've been using fedora on a separate laptop for 2 days now .

Fedora Installation :: Configure Grub To Ended Up Messing Up MBRs Of Both Hard Drives

Aug 26, 2009

I currently have a clean installation of Windows on the Primary drive (13gbs) and I want to install Fedora 11 on the other (7gbs). Should I install grub on the Windows hard drive or will Windows hate on me for that? Earlier I tried installing grub on the slave with the Fedora system, but I had trouble configuring Grub in a way that it would understand and I ended up messing up the MBRs of both hard drives.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Doesn't See All Drives / Partitions?

May 10, 2010

When I tried to install Ubuntu 9.10 or 10.04 (from CD or USB drive), and selected manual partitioning, the installer would not show all my drives.

However, when booting the life CD/USB, gparted or the Disk Utility did recognize all drives and partitions.

It turned out that one of my drives was marked as RAID partition, although I never used RAID!

Here the symptom:

When you run the installer and select "manual partitioning", the resulting list of drives and partitions is incomplete. In my example it was:

sda
- sda1
sdc
- sdc1

[Code]....

You may have multiple drives with the RAID metadata on it. In that case you need to repeat the above command for all those drives. Just make sure you don't wipe out your existing RAID, if you have one.

Reboot the system and see if it works.

P.S.: Also check your BIOS settings - do you have drives configured as RAID?

Fedora :: Can't Access Any Of The Other Hard Drives From The Other Drives?

I have one Fedora 14 and one Fedora 15 installed on two separate USB drives.When I boot into any of these drives, I can't access any of the other hard drives from the other drivesll I can, but just the boot partitions.Is there any way of mounting the other partitions so I can access the information?---------- Post added at 12:42 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:34 AM ----------I guess even an explanation on why I can't view them would be good too.

Fedora Installation :: Using The F10 Live CD To Setup Software RAID 1 Between 1 Hard Drives For Redundancy & Fstab

Apr 15, 2009

I have been battering with FC10 and software RAID for a while now, and hopefully I will have a full working system soon. Basically, I tried using the F10 live CD to setup Software RAID 1 between 1 hard drives for redundancy (I know its not hardware raid but budget is tight) with the following table;

[Code]....

I set these up by using the RAID button on the partition section of the install except swap, which I set-up using the New partition button, created 1 swap partition on each hard drive that didn't take part in RAID. Almost every time I tried to do this install, it halted due to an error with one of the raid partitions and exited the installer. I actually managed it once, in about...ooo 10-15 times of trying but I broke it. After getting very frustrated I decided to build it using just 3 partitions

[Code]....

I left the rest un-touched. This worked fine after completing the install and setting up grub, reboot in to the install. I then installed gparted and cut the drive up further to finish my table on both hard drives. I then used mdadm --create...etc to create my RAID partitions. So I now have

Fedora Installation :: F11 Drivers For ASUS P5L-VM 1394 - Procedure Fails To Recognize The Hard Drives

Aug 10, 2009

I would like to install Fedora 11 on an ASUS P5L-VM 1394 motherboard with a 3 GHz Pentium 4 CPU. This is an LGA775 socket mobo with a Intel 945G chipset. Two SATA hard drives are plugged into SATA ports. An IDE DVD drive is plugged into the IDE/ATA port. Using the 32 bit Fedora 11 installation disk, I have seen two cases:

1) No hard drive recognized. When i get to the disk configuration screen, there are no options to choose from.

2) By monkeying around with the BIOS settings or switching the SATA ports the disks are connected to, I can get an alternative mode in which no drivers are found for the DVD drive either.

Currently, a version of Ubuntu is installed. UPDATE: The board was purchased in a P3-PH4C barebones, which for unknown reasons requires a different BIOS issue than the regular P5L-VM 1394. Updating to the most recent BIOS does not resolve the problem. One the installation procedure fails to recognize the hard drives, going into a shell and examining the boot up log shows that the kernel recognized both hard drives. So it's down to why the installation procedure is not recognizing them.

OpenSUSE Install :: Find Hard Drives On System - Motherboard With Two SATA Controller Chips

Aug 2, 2010

I just finished a build of a new GNU/Linux boxen with openSUSE 11.2. I have a MSI Big Bang Xpower X58 motherboard which has two SATA controller chips, one is the standard Intel ICH10R chip for SATA 3.0 Gb/s and one is the Marvell 9128 chip for SATA 6.0 Gb/s. The BIOS recognizes the Western Digital Caviar Black 6.0 Gb/s drive on either SATA controller chips, /however/ I am unable to install (and boot) when the drive is connected to the Marvell controlled ports. As you can guess, I'd like to boot from the faster interface!

1. The BIOS allows me to select the Western Digital drive as a secondary boot device, so I know, at least at the BIOS level, it's there. This is true whether I have the drive connected to the Intel or Marvell ports. (The DVD drive is the primary boot device.)

2. When trying to install openSUSE 11.2 from DVD, the installer says that it can't find any hard drives on my system when I have the drive connected to the Marvell port. The installer finds the drive fine when it is connected to the Intel port.

3. I installed everything with the drive connected to the Intel port. I switched the drive to the Marvell port afterward and the system refuses to boot completely, stalling at some point where it starts to look for other filesystem partitions. This led me to conclude that perhaps the problem is with openSUSE and not hardware weirdness with the system having two separate SATA controllers?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't See Drives - Alternate Installer Doesn't Detect Windows - No Boot?

Feb 16, 2011

I have a Windows XP system, and wanted to install Ubuntu to a 100 GB XT3 partition on the same drive. I was told I could chainload Ubuntu from the NT Loader menu. I booted from a Ubuntu 10.04 CD and ran the installer. It didn't find any hard drives. On a hunch, I tried the 10.04 alternate installer CD. That DID find the hard drive and partitions. I had the installer make /dev/sda7 (the XT3 partition) the root. Installation proceeded smoothly, but then the installer told me it did not see any other OS's on my drive! Why? I directed the installer to place grub on /dev/sda7 instead of the MBR.

Per the instructions I was given, I used DD to copy the first 512 bytes of /dev/sda7 to the Windows primary partition (sda1) as bootloader.lnx. But the resulting file is empty, and it won't boot. I repeated the whole process - formatting, installing FOUR times, and same results. I have no idea where GRUB was installed. It is apparently not in the MBR, because I still have my normal Windows boot. I downloaded the 10.10 alternate installer and got the same exact results. Even switched from XT3 to XT4. After two weeks of this nonsense, I still have yet to see Linux boot.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Fails To See Hard Disk ?

Feb 7, 2010

The Install program is failing to see the hard disk!

Now heres the really weird bit. The live cd can see the drive just fine.

I have created partitions using gparted and the disktool also sees the drive just fine but as soon as I go back to the installer it shows no hard disk!

It's a SATA drive which I suspect might be a part of the problem.

Is there a way I can install without the install program?

Is there a way to make the install program see the drive?

This is ubuntu 9.10 desktop.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Not Seeing Internal Hard Drive

Sep 26, 2010

I've just put together a new machine and as I expected, there are some issues with hardware. I've just tried to set up the installation of ubuntu, got to the partitioning section and only my external hard drive is being picked up. The internal hard drive is a 1TB SATA drive plugged into a 6GB/s DATA port on my m/b (Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4 running Intel i5 760 processor). I'm probably going to try the alternate CD to see if that works, but does anyone know if this is a common problem for any of my hardware? (I did a google but couldn't find anything).
