Somehow Fedora 12 does not find one of my Sata drives (Seagate Barracuda 500GB) on the motherboard (Asus P5Q pro). The drive is attached to SATA_E1, which is a Silicon Image Serial ATA RAID connector. The drive currently has Windows Vista 64-bit OS which has been working fine. Fedora install loads correctly without errors, but only shows my RAID system on SATA ports 1-6.
WHAT I HAVE TRIED:
I have tried showing RAID as IDE in the BIOS, and setting it to compatible mode. Still does not detect.
I have tried setting the drives to ACPI mode in BIOS. No effect.
I'm installing the x86_64 version of Fedora 12. I have run the Debian i686 installer and it picks up this volume without issue.
I have a Desktop system using the Intel DG45ID motherboard with integrated graphics. I can't install from the 9.10 LiveCD. It can't find the Hard drive which is on the chipset's SATA controller.However, I can install 9.04 just fine. I can even do the 9.10 upgrade without a problem.Does anyone know if this bug has been reported. I'm hoping 10.4 has this fixed. I'll test the beta to see
ubuntu 8.04 server can not detect seagate sata hard drive 2tb or sata Lg dvdrw x22 sata drive .is it possible to install it without buying a pci ide sata card?is it possible to get a driver for sata driver and sata drive that can be recognise by ubunto 8.04 server ?or to get the files for 1.44 floppy diskdoes the late edition of unbutu recognise sate hdd and sata cdrw drive automaticly during the installation of the unbutu?
I upgraded F14 to F15; However, F15 no longer recognizes my 3 sata disks connected through Marvell controller. The controller is an integrated Marvell chipset 88SE6480. The controller has its own manufacturer driver but it was intended for RHEL 5.4 (mv64xx) and installation of this driver fails to generate mv64xx driver.
I have a 3.5" SATA disk in an external enclosure which is connected to my USB port. How do I get F13 to recognize the disk? It does not show up in the Disk Utility (Applications > System Tools > Disk Utility).
F13 does recognize flash drives that I put into a USB port.
i have a netbook compaq mini with a sata toshiba hard drive.XP was installed on this machine until the hard drive started to have bad blocks.Then i bought a mypassport500go to install f14 on it.It worked but know the sata hard drive is more and more faulty.When i try to boot f14 it displays :acpi : package has zero elements. So i cannot boot.I tryed rescuecd, does not work either.i tryed many kernel params to disable sata at boot but it seems to be builtin.there is no option in the bios to disable the hard drive.
I have recently added 2 500GB sata drives to my machine. I have a Supermicro X6 mobo (yes its rather old) and the Bios recognizes the drives as Master 2 and Master 3 ide , but the linux will not recognize the drives. The system is running RH8 kernel 2.4.31 and i dont have the option of upgrading the kernel at the moment. Is there any way to get the linux to recognize the drives?
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.
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?
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....
getting freespire to recognize my 2nd hard drive and allow me to use it for things I want to save there and such. I also cannot get CNR to come up in my browser and need some information as to how to install programs.how to find installable programs,and install them.
I went to install Ubuntu 10.04 on my home pc last night but I couldn't. The installers could not see my raid and even though I wished to install to a seperate HDD windows is installed to my raid. The windows MBR always overtook the Grub and whenever I start grub up it cannot find an OS or Kernel.
I have got an ASUS Rampage 3 Extreme [URL] and on it there are two 6.0 sata Marvell connectors: [URL]
In these two Marvell connectors are two WD velociraptor 10,00 rpm Raid 0 drives. On these two drives is installed Windows 7. The ubuntu installer cannot seem to see the raid pair and so does not install Grub correctly.
I have tried to install ubuntu onto my computer using the live CD. It installed fine, and it put grub on sda (which linux sees as my SATA drive). Windows is installed on the ide drive which linux see's as the sdb drive. It was a successful install and in theory it should work, except it find the windows install first so it boots into windows without using grub. I think that linux assigns the drives using the sata first and the ide second, but windows does the opposite and the ide drive is first and the sata is second.
Is it possible to install grub onto the ide drive and get it to dual boot linux or is it possible to use the windows bootloader to recognize the linux install and chainload grub? I am thinking that if I use grub on the ide drive it will throw an error like what happened during my wubi install and it is unable to find the kernel because it is looking for it on sda, but from a windows install it is sdb. I have tried to get the computer to boot from the sata drive, but the mobo is a bit old and I do not think it is supported.
I have a HP PC that I have installed a PCI SATA controller in. The PC doesn't support booting from the card.... So here is what I would like to do. (btw..I'm a seasoned noob on Linux.) I would like to be able to boot ubuntu 10.10 from a usb pin drive 2Gb to a point where the kernal can recognize the SATA drive then start the OS from the SATA HDD.
I can see and access the drive if I boot to a live CD but when I install it won't boot because the PC's bios does not see the PCI card. This has to be possible but my Google foo isn't strong enough to find out how. Would a simple GRUB install on the pen drive work?
I'm trying to setup Linux on my friend's system but none of my Live CDs (gparted, kubuntu) will detect the SATA HDD or SATA optical drive. I keep getting the error message "unable to find a medium containing a live file system". I can boot into gparted from a USB flashdrive but it will not recognize the SATA HDD or any of the partitions on it.

Install of 10.4 64 bit not showing choice of sata drives on install. W 7 on sata a drive, SUSE 11 on sata b drive. Need to load Ubuntu 10.4 on drive b, but not given choice of drives on the install. Only "clear drive" listed on the install window. This is not the case on 32 bit, a graph with drives listed. W7 a runs Adobe CS5, the Ubuntu 10.4 has excellent font, type display on the live cd.
I've been trying to find a solution, I've looked everywhere but no luck. I have a 1TB drive, checked the cable & it's connected to motherboard SATA0. That motherboard is dual booting fine (windows7 + Ubuntu 10.04).
My problem is when I connect the other SATA drive, SATA1. Upon restarting my machine, nothing happens & I dont see any boot menu (grub).
I've checked the bios settings, boot drives are in order:
CD-ROM SATA0 SATA1
To check if the second drive has physical errors, I've connected it as SATA0 (alone) & installed successfully windows & ubuntu 10.04. I formatted it & installed ubuntu studio. The drive is working fine. So I formatted it again, & now it's not connected.
How can I make it work? I want SATA0 to have both windws/ubuntu, & the SATA1 to be just a data storage drive.
i have a strange problem while trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 64bit (also tried with x86 - no luck).My system specs : Motherboard : ASUS P5B VM SE (PATA : JMB368 / Intel ICHHD : Seagate SATA II 3GBit 320 MB (connected in SATA port 1)CPU : Intel Core 2 Quad 2500 GHzI must state i installed Windows 7 without a problem. After that, i tried to install Ubuntu 9.10, first 64bit then x86 but in every case the setup starts, i select language / location etc and when the partitioner starts i see no hard disk drive. Same happens if i try the alternate install cd.
I must mention here that if i click on "Exit" and access Ubuntu Live CD desktopm i can go System >Administrator > Disk Utillity and GParted. In both utillities my HD shows up just fine. So what could be the problem ??? I tried starting ubuntu with pci=nommconf irqpoll -> no luckHere is the lspci output :
"Disk sda contains BIOS RAID metadata, but is not part of any recognized BIOS RAID sets. Ignoring disk sda" That's the message showing on the screen. I used to install the fedora 12 is no problem at all. And last time I see fedora 13 come out, then I want to try it. I also try my different destop, it also coming the same thing. don't know what happen? Could any one answer my question. This is my first time here.
I am about to do a clean install of 10.04 (64-bit) on a ThinkPad X201. The machine will only be running Ubuntu (i.e., no dual-boot). Is there any reason to use compatibility mode for the SATA boot drive, or will AHCI work fine?
I have appealed to anyone on this forum site for any help on installing Unbuntu 10.04.1 LTS on a MACBOOK PRO (Mid 2007 Model. Basically I've followed a few threads & posts on how to Quad boot a Macbook Pro & it seems pretty straight forward,however. Ubuntu is not playing ball for some reason?? The first attempt I tried I had the partitions as follows:
I am using a 500gb sata internal hard drive.
WIN 7 - 125gb STORAGE - 15gb WIN XP -125gb MAC OSX - 180gb FREE SPACE 50gb - Formatted DOS - Which would become the EXT4 & SWAP FILE partition. After following instructions: http://hydtechblog.com/2009/01/26/du...windows-vista/
I want to install Ubuntu 10.10 via a DVD-ROM but I faild. I got the message "no common cd-rom drive was detected." I have tried to install ubuntu 11.4 and failed too.
DVD-ROM was attached to SATA 3.0 port. SATA controller was set to IDE mode. PCH is CougarPoint.
I use the same hardware setting to install Red Hat 6.0 and it works fine. I tried following boot option but in vain: noapic, acpi=off, nodmraid, all_generic_ide. It is ok to boot via a live usb but ubuntu 10.10 still can't find DVD-ROM. I have to use the hardware setting I descripted to install Ubuntu 10.10.

I have a working F-10 box with an older motherboard (pre-sata). The p-ata ports are full (4 drives), so I'm trying to add a sata controller and another drive. The sata controller plugs into the pci bus, but is not detected by the bios (very old). After booting, the OS loads the driver module(s) and detects the new controller and drive. I was able to add the new sata drive into the LVM system using system-config-lvm. All was fine until I rebooted.
I get pages of lvm errors and booting fails. It looks like it's trying to mount the volumes before the sata controller is modprobed. Is there a way to get the os to modprobe for the new controller before trying to mount? The extra drive space is on a data partition, not the boot partition.
I have been trying to install Ubuntu on my main computer for some time. I think I have two problems: my hard drive and video card. I started with Ubuntu 9.04 but got nowhere. I am now trying Ubuntu 9.10 32 bit. I can at least use the live cd if I put the video on safe mode. Just in case you are wondering, I have tried other distros: Fedora, OpenSUSE, Slitaz, Wolvix, etc. Only Slitaz and Ubuntu 9.10 works on a live cd.
Information on my computer: OS: Trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 32bit Motherboard: ASUS M3A78 CPU: AMD Phenom 9500 Quad Core
Video Card: Galaxy Geforce 9500 GT 1GB 128 bit DDR2 (Nvidia) Hard Drive: Hitachi 1 TB Sata Drive 3 Gb/sec 7200 RPM Ram: 4 GB (I think, its been awhile since I built this thing) DVD Burner: LG I think I have two problems: the Sata Hard Drive and the Video Card. When I go to install it, I can get to the install menu but from there all I get is a blank screen. I have tried to put the video in safe mode then install it but I get the same result: a blank screen.
How do I know if Ubuntu recognize the Hard Drive and Video Card? I tried the mount command to see what it sees but I didn't notice any Sata Drives. I was told that I may have to do something with the kernel so it will recognize my Hard Drive. How would I do that?
I have been working on this for awhile now. On a side note, does it matter which Sata Plug the hard drive is on? Right now I have it on the 1st one but I would like to move it to the second one because I want a dual boot system. And yes I know I can use the same hard drive but I would like to keep them separated and use a switch to pick which OS system to use.
While running on the Live Cd, Ubuntu seems to know about my video card and ask to install some drivers but then it asked to be rebooted and it came back up not recognizing anything; video card and hard drive that is. On the live cd I ran the following commands: lswh, lspci, mount, and df. I am not too sure if they will show if the hard drive and the video card are working since I did them on the Live CD. Also on the lspci command, I did this after Ubuntu loaded the driver for the card.
I decided to install the Ubuntu Netbook remix (9.10, I believe) on this extra IDE hard drive I had (my other three hard drives are SATA.) My primary hard drive contains a Windows XP, my second contains Windows 7, and my third SATA drive is just NTFS-formatted storage. I went through the installer and choose to format and install on my 40GB IDE hard drive, which it did. Then it finished and rebooted. It apparently decided to install the GRUB bootloader onto the primary hard drive (not the one it was installed on,) which was not my intention. The bootloader froze the boot of my computer and wouldn't work. (Stuck at loading GRUB.) I couldn't even get to the BIOS. So I pulled the plug on the primary hard drive and tried to boot again. I could get into Windows 7 just fine, but that was it. The problem, though, is that the CD drive (also SATA) no longer shows up in My Computer. Also, after changing the boot order and replugging in the former primary hard drive, it wouldn't show up, either. Nor would the IDE one (though I'm pretty sure that's because Windows doesn't understand the EXT (or whatever Ubuntu uses) file system.
Does anyone know why this occurred and how to get those drives to show up in Windows again? I don't really care to get the netbook remix working here, since this isn't even a laptop, it was just an experiment. Also, I'd love to know how to remove GRUB from my primary hard disk so that I can boot from it again.
I have fedora 11 installed and fully updated, but im trying to burn the upgrade cd to fedroa 12. Using brasreo disk burner thing it says "no available disk" and i dont know why. This is a fresh install of 11 just updated. Any ideas? maby a cd driv driver?
