I keep getting this error in my log viewer every 2 seconds: Code: ata4: limiting SATA link speed to 1.5 Gbps I have a dual boot SSD and I have run many SMART tests in windows and linux, (using smartmon tools and the disk utility) and the reports are all 100% healthy..... My research shows that this error represents one of the following:
1. Problem with SATA controller 2. Changing BIOS to allow SATA 3. Changing SATA mode to PATA or AHCI 4. Replacing the SATA cable 5. Allowing the SSD to run at SATA II speeds, i.e. 3 Gbps
- Does anyone know how to try number 5, i.e. allowing the SSD to run at SATA II speeds? I am lost here and this problem has caused my machine to crash twice when watching a movie in linux/ ubuntu. (It is worth noting that the crashes have only occurred in linux and I have never had an issue in windows, so it does seem to be a linux setting somewhere, hence why I think it is a "allowing SATA II to run at correct speeds issue")
I have an IBM xSeries server with a 120gb IDE hd. I would like to use it for mail and web server at work. Obviously, I need a bigger HD. The only thing is I can't find a big (1TB) IDE HD all I can find are SATAs and this server's motherboard does not support SATA drives.
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 recently set up a Samba Server on a new Gigabyte (Desktop) Motherboard with support for SATA 3.0. I used a new 1T SATA 3.0 (6Gb) Hard Drive. The system is performing poorly, seems to have problems both opening and closing files (*.dbf).
Also will hold a file as open periodically (may be a Samba Issue).
Does the O/S have to support this standard, or is it a function of the Hardware...?
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?
I have a seagate SATA hard drive that was running a mythtv distro. It had 3 partitions, EXT3, swap, and XFS. I started having I/O errors on boot and saw error messages on both the EXT3 and the XFS partitions. I also heard some clunking sounds on the drive when it was reading, so I thought hell, the drive is dead.
I have since replaced the drive and everything is back up and running on the replacement drive. I thought hell, the seagate drive is toast, but I just want to verify it with some sort of tool. I have the hard drive in a Vantec NexStar external hard drive case (SATA->USB) and found there was a tool called badblocks. Ran badblocks on it, which ran for 24ish hours and found no bad blocks. I also didn't notice any clunking sounds while it was running.
I ran Code: badblocks -n -v /dev/sdb Is badblocks a proper test to run on external hard drives or was I just wasting my time? Is there any way that I can really test it without removing it and connecting it with SATA to the motherboard?
I installed Ubuntu 10.04, and happened to have an Silicom Images PCXpress card plugged in, and it kindly added the sil_sata module.This is fine for this chip set.I think that my earlier installation of Ubuntu 9.04 used Libata, which does support NCQ and also has good legacy support for the Intel Intel ICH7 chipset I have inside my Sony Vaio SZ notebook. Also, libata also support Silicon Image chipsets as far as I can tell from URL...I wish to remove the Silicom Images SATA modules and replace this with libata and then test the performance between the two device drivers.
Dear OpenSUSE experts: I am a dual boot computer: Win 7 64 bit and OpenSUSE 11.2 64 bit. This computer has 3 hard drives: SSD, 500GB sata II, 1 TB sata 3. SSD contains openSUSE 11.2 500GB sata II contains Win 7.
Win 7 sees the 500GB sata II drive and the 1 TB sata 3 drive. openSUSE sees the SSD drive and the 500GB windows drive. The Motherboard BIOS sees all 3 hard drives. Is it openSUSE not support sata 3 drive? Or do I have to install special driver for it to see it in OpenSUSE?
All of my computers are second-hand (except 1 laptop but it doesn't count) and I see in my Dell 4600 there are 2 SATA connectors on the motherboard. I picked up a 250 GB SATA hard disk and cables recently and tried plugging it in but the system doesn't see it. I even disconnected all other disks to make sure there wasn't a conflict (master/slave) issue going on but the system still does not see it.
The disk is vibrating so I assume it is getting juice and is spinning. Is there a setting or something I have to do to tell the system to access the SATA? Do I have to look at RAID settings if there is only 1 SATA disk? Can I not have a SATA disk and an ATA disk plugged in at the same time? I want to try and determine if the disk is bad, or is it PEBKAC!
This is a solution to a problem that has bugged me for months but I finally got around to solving.I hope this will be useful to anyone using Ubuntu with GRUB2 who has the same problem.I am running Ubuntu 10.4 Lynx which did not recognise the newly-installed SATA HDD.In fact, booting up would face me with a recovery shell.The solution is to add the pci=nomsi kernel parameterTo do this you need to edit the /etc/default/grub file and add the kernel parameter as follows:
server is :intel 5000p ,2gX4 ram ,cpu 5405 X13 sata sda 500g sata use for system rootfilesystem primate mastersdb 500g sata use for data filesystem second mastersdc 500g sata use for data filesystem second slavebios set use enhance and ide i install centos5.4 x86_64 on sda when i install system on sda, sdb and sdc is offline.after system install sucess ,poweroff and add sdb and sdc when system kernel start report ata0 error or ata1 error. exp XXXX (rydy).but when only add sdb or sdc ,system can startup and use all service ,exp vncserver ,kvm,pptp..
My computer has 3 hard drives: 1 SSD, 1 sata II, 1 sata 3. This is a dual boot system contains OpenSUSE 11.2 64 bit OS and Win 7 64 bit OS. the SSD drive has OpenSUSE, and the sata II has Win 7.
Win 7 sees the sata II and sata 3 drives, while OpenSUSE only sees the SSD hard drive and the sata II drive. Even in partitioner in OpenSUSE does not see the sata 3 drive. Is sata 3 (6 gb/s) supported in OpenSUSE 11.2?
I have a SSD Harddisk with both an usb and Sata connection, and I want to be able to boot both from usb and sata but I can't make it work. When the disk is connected with sata anything works fine but when I connect it with usb instead, Fedora seems to boot but then it gives me an "No root device found" error and just sleep forever. This happens even if I install fedora 13 while the disk is connected with usb. I am running Fedora Core 13. I changed my fstab to /dev/sda2 / ext4 defaults 1 1
And the disk is still booting when connected to the sata controller. So far so good. But if I boot from the usb connection, it still give me the same "No root device found" message. Even more odd is it that if I boot my fedora core 13 dvd, and choose "rescue installed system" it can't detect the harddisk when connected to usb. And there is no /dev/sd* or anything similarly which could look like a blockdevice. Did redhat forget to include usb drivers in their rescue image for Fedora core? I just tried the disk on an other system, with exactly the same problems.
I have now added the LABEL=myroot line to fstab(I guess it have to be uppercase to work) and the harddisk still boot fine when using sata, but it still can't boot using usb. I begin to guess that redhat forgot some usb drivers In fedora Core 13, because the system can't see the harddisk when booting the dvd and entering rescue mode. blkid don't show any harddisks at all and there are no block devices in /dev/ which might be my usb disk. Is it possible to find the uuid of partitions if id add the usb harddisk to a windows computer, and more important: will this be the same uuid as linux will se.
I bought 2 new 1,5TB sata disks for my server. But when I plug them in my debian gives a error message: ata2: SRST failed error -16
The debian runs from an old 500GB ide disk and a 160Gb ide disk for the home dirs.
I tried antoher cable, but that is not the problem(or is that other cable also broken...). I also tried all sata modes in bios, auto, enhanced, sata-only. I also tried booting an ubuntu 9.10 live cd. But in gparted the disks won't show up.
Is it possible that the sata controller of the motherboard is to slow.
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]
(Ubuntu 10.10) I went to System->Preferences->Power Management and checked spin down hard disks whet possible. I have two internal sata hard drives. One is for the OS and the other is for media. Neither Hard disk is being spun down. Is there something else I need to do?
I have a number of drives that I am setting up for friends who wish to switch/alternate from Windoze. So far several completed. One particular drive is being a bit difficult. When checked on my system[10.10] by Sata/USB wire it reads OK and gives the following info. 200GB, 768kb used, file sys Ms-Dos
When installed on the Mobo as main drive and machine booted set to boot from HD it sometimes reports 'No Drive Found' Reset the BIOS to boot from CD and Load Ubuntu from DVD- it goes through load routine then reports 'Error- cannot Mount drive[or words to that effect] Tried installing frm CD/DVD drive to the disk via the SATA/USB wire But that failed also with CD Auto load error So the disk seems to need setting up in some way to suit Linux presumably just like FDisk in Dos/Windoze
I tried to load Red Hat Linux 4 on my PC, which has 945 MB, Core 2 Duo Processor, 2GB RAM, 250GB SATA HDD. But i couldnt do so as it did not detect the hard drive and was asking for drivers. I changed the SATA settings to Legacy but still it didnt recognise the HDD...I have Windows XP SP3 also installed on it.
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.
Is this a known bug? I've not had problem installing 9.04 but 9.10 will not see HDD under partition manager(ubiquity) no matter the F6 boot options or fiddling around with bios. If ubuntu can't see the hdd, I can't install. 785G chipset with SB710 FYI.
