Fedora Hardware :: New SATA Hard Disk Not Being Detected

Feb 8, 2011

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!

Ubuntu Installation :: ASUS A8V-MX Recognises SATA Hard Disk?

Aug 11, 2010

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:

Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="pci=nomsi"

[code]....

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid - 250GB Sata Hard Disk Not Detected By Partitioner

May 1, 2010

The hard disk is seen in the BIOS.

The partitions on it are accessible via the Places Menu on the Lucid Live CD.

It's just when I try to install, nothing is detected in Step 4 of 8, "Prepare Partitions".

An old 80GB IDE disk, on the other hand is seen by the partitioner.

I am not using RAID and it is not enabled in the BIOS.

Ubuntu :: Show Local Hard Disk As External USB Storage To TV?

Aug 17, 2010

I have this unique situation, I think. My TV plays certain files only through external USB storage. My Ubuntu server stores all of these files on local hard disks. I do not want to buy an external hard disk and then keep moving it between both. Now, strange as it may sound, is it possible to somehow connect my server to the PC and expose a given local hard disk connected to the server, as an external USB drive to the TV?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Support For Sata 3 (6 Gb/s) Hard Drive?

Jun 1, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: External Hard Drive - GParted Wont Load Up When Plugged In And Disk Utility Doesn't Show It

Feb 7, 2011

I had this corrupted external hdd and so I formatted the main partition on it on windows but messed up in the formatting and ended up having to format the entire thing. I got some weird message about it not being initialized (no not mounted) so I was in compmgmt.msc in windows and right clicked it in device manager and it asked for master boot or GUID I selected the latter and formatted. Worked fine and all for a bit but now it doesn't show up as a drive. I noticed when using compmgmt.msc it showed up that it had installed driver software and was being recognized but in the partition editing area there was nothing on this drive, reinstalling driver software doesn't seem to help. Also GParted wont load up when I have it plugged in and Disk Utility doesn't show it. I am requesting help to fix this problem within Ubuntu 10.10 somehow so I can use it properly.

OpenSUSE Install :: Installer Will Not Detect Hard Disks (SATA)?

Dec 19, 2009

Trying to install SUSE on a perfectly working PC that was running Windows. Blew away all the partitions and formated the drives.When trying to install SUSE, Installer will not detect my two hard disks. Tried with version 10.x, 11.1 and 11.2, without success.My Mobo is a XFX GeForce 8209, and my SATA drives are both Seagates (1x120GB, 1x320GB). I've tried different SATA mode selection (i.e. SATA, AHCI, and RAID) without any success either.I've tried to look for SATA controller drivers for my Mobo, to try to load on Installer startup, but failed there too.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Install Sata And Clone Pata Hard Drive?

May 20, 2010

I recognize the obvious need to back up the contents and follow a certain duty of care before attempting to clone my failing pata 250g HD to a 1 tera byte sata. What problems if any could come up when cloning from a failing pata to a sata HD? I'd like to make the switch to sata for many reasons if possible. It is indicated that the HP d530 sff here supports both types.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Hard Disk Frequent Head Unloads - Disk Clicking Whilst Idle?

Jun 2, 2010

I created a thread about a problem a I had with my hard disk clicking whilst idle little while ago and I may now have stumbled upon a possible solution. The strange thing with the problem is that Ubuntu/Kubuntu didn't cause this problem but Opensuse 11.2 does.

I installed Fedora 13 to have a glimpse of what all the fuss was about and noticed that I had the same problem (hard disk clicking whilst idle ~ every 20 secs or so). Now there's a wiki on this subject and a few bug reports: [url]

Problem Description

Some ATA harddrives perform very frequent head unloads under Linux significantly shortening their lifespans. Root cause

The inactivity timer for head unload is configured too aggressively either via ATA APM (Advanced Power Management) feature or other non-standard means. Such aggressive settings are very fragile to changes in IO pattern and under Linux many such drives unload their heads only to re-load them shortly. Note that this relentless unloading/reloading cycle can also be triggered under Windows by installing programs which can alter the IO pattern (e.g. certain vaccine programs which runs in background).

Now two of the listed models with this problem are basically identical to my model (Dell Inspiron 1520) and basically share the same hardware: Dell Vostro 1500 and XPS 1520.

The workaround listed is to:

set APM to 254

Furthermore, there is a script: Storage-Fixup which can also be downloaded from opensuse software search. Indeed there is a report of this for a Vostro 1500: Gmane Loom

The report suggests looking at: Disk Power Management - openSUSE which lists a method to create a configuration file to management disk power management:

My question is whether I could download the storage-fixup rpm [url] has a description of it and it can be found: Software.openSUSE.org) and install it to (hopefully) solve the issue or should I follow the method given in: Disk Power Management - openSUSE

to set APM to 254:

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?
