Fedora Installation :: Hard Disc Not Detecting For Seagate SATA Hard Disc?
Jul 15, 2009
I have AMD athlon 64 processor, Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Disk, ASUS A8VMX mother board.With this configuration, I can Install FC7 without any error. But all the latest releases after FC7 is not detecting my Hard disk. Is there any solution to solve this problem? Actually I'm searching for a solution when the FC8 released. Now I have all the later releases from FC8 to FC11 DVD except FC9. But none is working .
I have just installed 11.3 x64. The installation went fine and worked for the first few hours. I ran the online update tool, and now it cannot find grub unless the installation disc is inserted and I select the "boot from hard disc" option.
I have read about the problem of the root partition being back, but not sure that's it.
sda1 - swap sda2 - / sda3 - /home
There used to be a repair tool in the installation disks. I could not find that in this media. Is that still available?
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....
I would like to combine my Linux partition (/sda3) and /sad1 to give me more disc space. I would also like to combine the two unallocated partitions to install a Windows 7 dual-boot with Ubuntu. How would I do that without totally raping my current Ubuntu install?
My computer has two hard discs; one contains Windows 7 and the other is completely empty and has a capacity of 160 GB. I want to install Ubuntu and another distro - possibly Fedora - on the empty HD but I am stuck as to how to go about partitioning the drive.Should I partition the drive first so that it is ready for two distros or should I install one of the distros first and then let the second one do its own partitioning?If I should partition the drive first could someone in the direction of a step-by-step guide to this;preferably a guide for dummies. I already created /dev/sdb1 and /dev/sdb2 thinking that these would be the equivalent of two logical drives in Windows e.g. D: and E: but this didn't seem to be the case because when I started to install Ubuntu it asked all sorts of questions to which I did not know the answers so I have now returned the drive to its original state.
I am planning on installing Ubuntu on my new laptop with a native resolution of 1920x1080 however the install disc (I booted into the "test") part, sets my resolution to 2048x1536.Keeping it on 2048x1536 cuts off about 50 pixels on the right side of my screen so it must not be right. So I tried changing it from the "Monitors" settings back to 1920x1080 and everything is so large and it is stretched horizontally. Is this just because I'm running the "try me" part, or is there something wrong with Ubuntu and my video card?

I am new to linux. I am installing linux in my system which already have windows xp. But when I am trying to install linux , it is not detecting my hard disc and exiting the installation. How to proceed further.
After happily running a persistent install from a USB stick for a week I decided to delete my Windows install and replace with Ubuntu.I did the install from the USB stick, selecting the option to use the whole drive.When the install finished I was prompted to restart. I removed the USB stick and did so. The machine rebooted... and nothing. Just a flashing cursor top left of a black screen.I've booted the USB stick version and looked at the hard drive. Stuff has been installed sure enough, but it will not boot.Machine is Acer Aspire 5920 laptop. Running Ubuntu from USB stick has been smooth as silk with no issues.I'm not technically minded, so I'm afraid that any assistance (for which I would be eternally grateful) may need to be n00b-style dumbed-down.
I have two sata HDs. One of these has Debian an Winxp installed. Grub is the bootloader. Grub resides in MBR (on the same disk). Now that I've added that second disk, I would like to test win7 on it. What I would like to do is to be able to choose -at boot time (maybe in bios setup)- between booting from the disk containing win7 or from the disk containing Grub with winxp and Debian. I thought that when installing win7 it would let me choose the disk where to install it and here is where the problem arises.
Win7 installer detects my partitions and lists them as if they were not on different disks. What would happen if I choose to install win7 on the partition I want to (second disk, partition1)? Will win7 create a new bootloader? Now I am a little confused and don't want to keep on going not being sure the results are what I expected. What steps should I follow to install win7 on the second hard disc not affecting the disc with winxp, debian and grub letting me choose between these two Operating Systems?
I'm starting to push the limit of my /home directory. My machine is Linux/Windows dual-boot. I need to keep Windows as the machine is not "officially" mine, and so might need to go back at some point to a Windows user. All my normal Windows access is via VirtualBox. I have made my Windows partitions as small as possible, and now have an empty D partition as follows:
It's the D* partition that I would like to add to my home directory. Is there an easy way of doing this, or am I looking at a complete re-install of openSUSE?
I have a few computers all connected to the same router both wireless and wired. All at the moment are running Ubuntu. There is no problem sharing any of these computer's local drives through the network. However I have one desktop with an external USB Hard disc plugged into it. I would like to share this external hard disc on the network. I set it up to share but when I try and access it from one of the other computers on the network, although it shows up, I get the message "Unable to mount location. Failed to mount windows share".
I'm sorry for this stupid question, but I have nowhere found it.I need to access to my USB disc from text mode (In Fedora LiveCD I see it and i can access /media/New Volume). In F12 runlevel 3 in mc I see it in /dev/disc/by-label as @Newx20Volume. But I don't know what is the correct path.
See "10.4 synaptic package manager error" thread, for more details. Basically, I want to find a way to save my data. To do that, I need to figure out what exactly went wrong. Any of u who really wanna help, see that thread and the 1 mentioned in that thread, in order to extract a reason for all this madness from carefully examining every erroneous step.
find out the available and consumed Hard Disc memory through c/c++ program .I am using Dabian linux 2.6 I am able to get the physical memory size information by reading /proc fileI need to get information of HDD memory throug c/c
My wife's XP has crashed and I need to save files. I've discovered the command to mount the hard drive - unfortunately I need to force the mount, but I can't do it because I have to be in root. I can see the root user in the user list, but when I try to switch I can't access it. How I can do it to back up my wife's files. I have Kubuntu 8 and KDE 4.1.
It seems I can't burn any kind of disc (cd/dvd, audio/video/data) usgin my internal sata burner (sr0). I treied googling around and reinstalling everything from dvd+rw-tools up but the error is still there. the burner works fine with windows on the very same pc (dual boot). I tried different media and different speeds. when using an usb burner everything's fine...
Ubuntu 10.04 has just failed to load from my hard drive, so I've resorted to booting from CD just to get the machine going.I'm wondering if my main boot drive has gone caput??When trying to mount it using DISK UTILITY...get the message: Error mounting volume
Error mounting: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,missing codepage or helper program, or other error.In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
I have purchased HP Pavilion e9280jp/CT which has two 1.5TB (SATA 7200rpm) hard drives. But during installation Fedora 11 and 12 (beta) did not detect my second hard drive. It only showed one hard drive in the list. I used the Fedora Live CD and still it only showed one hard disk.
Then , I partitions my first hard disk as follows: [1TB - Windows (Primary) ][ 100Gb - Linux partion ][ Factory recovery Image] and installed Fedora 12 , and now giving me Grub errors. How can I force Fedora installer to detect my second hard disk?
this blew my mind today, because i've been using ubuntu for 2 and half years. Brasero 2.28.2 in Karmic does not have an option enable multisessions when burning disc or import a disc which has a multisession.
Seriously, wtf is going on? This is supposed to be Ubuntu's default CD authoring software.
I'm trying to install files and everytime I manage to install from the first disc I succeed. When I get the the second disc I just keep clicking the "OK" button instead of "Cancel" and it keeps neglecting it.
I have been a Linux user for about 6 years now, and recently switched to Fedora just to try something new. I used Ubuntu for the majority of the time so I am somewhat familiar with the command line, but seem to be having trouble with my external HDD. Ubuntu automounted it no problem. Fedora doesn't seem to like to do that. I tried searching and I did what almost every thread insisted upon; which is mount /dev/sdb(that is what dmesg said) but it says already mounted or /mnt/busy. So this is the extent of my Terminal experience with mounting an external drive, and I am completely dumbfounded as to why it simply won't mount. I am liking Fedora so far and so long as there is a remedy for this I don't plan on going back.
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 tried installing Red Hat linux on my Sata hard disk . As soon as the hardware detection phase starts it generates the error "No hardware detected".roblem? (I have also tested RHLE 5, CentOS 5.4, but none of them detect the hard disk and I can not install anyone).I have installed Windows 7 on one of my disks and I have not any problem with it.I also changed storage configuration in Bios as AHCI, IDE,
My Hardware config is as below: Mainboard: ASUS P6X58D premium, CPU: core i7 950, HDD: two 1 TB WD SATA3 Ram: 6 GB (3*2 GB cruciall[/U][/U][/B]
I have an Asus P5K motherboard with an Intel Core 2 Duo 8400. It has 2 SATA hard disks, a 250 GB Seagate and a 500GB Hitachi.
I've been running Fedora 10 x86_64 for 6 months on this computer without problems.
I'm trying to do a new Fedora 11 install on this computer but the installer (Anaconda?) only detects the Hitachi disk.
I've tried to make a new Fedora 10 install to check if it was a media or disk problem and it detects the two hard disks.
I've tried to install it via a Live CD, and the installer only detects the Hitachi disk. The LiveCD detects the two hard disks, I can access it, partition, format, write, but the installer only detects the Hitachi.
I've tried to change from Enhanced SATA (AHCI) to Compatible in BIOS without success and I've changed SATA cables from one disk to the other, changed the disk order and nothing.
Must I enter some boot parameters for Fedora 11? Has the LiveCD installer some options?
