I'm having a bit of a problem enabling any sort of permissions for my 1TB SATA HDD on /dev/sda1. Using Nautilus and wine, I'm trying to play games already pre-installed on my Windows 7 partition. When ever I right-click>permissions>Enable execution, it reverses the changes. I don't know if this is relevant, but id rather not copy anything on to my /dev/sdb2/ partition because its about 1/10th the size of sda1 (142GB free to be exact). Is their any way to make a permanent change? I don't really mind if it's a solution in the terminal... So long as it doesn't mess up my ability to boot Windows 7.
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 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")
Ubuntu 10.04 (64)I have a second drive (currently mounted as /disk2).I want my home directory (/home/jb) to include this second disk as JUST a separate 'folder' accessible from my home area.want the data on the second disk to be encrypted, (just like my /home/jb folder is now).I would prefer to 'blend' the second drive into my existing setup.I'm looking for the safest way to achieve this, don't mind editing fstab etc. or getting my hands dirty on the cli.
I'm trying out some other distros i have fedora, openSUSE, natty (wanna check out gnome3), and debian
i tried to create a pen drive for all separate ones of the using unetbootin' and none worked except natty
i installed image writer which doesn't recognize any of my iso's when i browse my filesystem the folder they're in is just empty
i've tried the multicd.sh script to create a multiboot dvd so i don't have to create 5 different cds but when i execute it it just lists memtest where its supposed to list all the .iso's in the folder (yes i renamed them all simple as per instructions...
and then the multibootusb which only recognized openSUSE and when it was done i couldn't boot off it
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 have a server running an older version of Ubuntu and with /var stored on a separate partition on a separate hard drive. I am attempting to update Ubuntu to 10.04, but I still want to store /var on a separate partition and hard drive. However, I don't want to format the drive which currently contains /var, as it has important data.
Is there some way to have 10.04 set up the new /var on this separate drive at installation, without formatting the drive and losing the old /var?
I have a file on a separate hard drive and it wont allow me to delete it.how I navigate to it in the terminal so I can remove directory there? I plug my usb lead in and go /hoome/boo/Iomega_HDD (name of the hard drive)but I cant get there,it doesnt show up as a directory.
The hardware is a psystar box with 2 drives for os x and ubuntu respectively. I attempted install of ubuntu over older version of xubunut without physically disconnecting the os x drive After install I could not boot into either system. THEN I remembered something about the install problem that 10.4 has and installed ubuntu again, this time following the instruction regarding booloader install. Now I can boot ubunut fine, but of course when I select drive holing os x it hangs on 'Verifying DMI pool data....' I've been looking at some thread on here about dual boot problems with Win7 and such, but are any of the recommended diagnostic and repair steps relevant to my case, specifically testdisk and bootinfo scripts?
I have 4 hard drives in my computer. 1 for may root and home partitions. 2 extras for storage and 1 for Windows. I have the hard drive with my root and home partitions set as the first hard drive in the bios. However, in the Ubuntu setup it isn't the first one in the list. I would have thought that the first drive would be get set to sda. That is not the case.
I'm trying to mount my SATA drive that has Windows on it under Xubuntu, it's NTFS formatted, I tried adding it to fstab, I know the /dev points are right I checked with sudo lshw -C disk and with fdisk -l, the drive is partitioned 3 ways 1 for Win7, one for Win7's system info partition or whatever, and 1 for documents, but when I try mounting with mount -a with /dev/sda1 (which is where the windows partition should be) I get this:
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.
Having an issue I've been unable to resolve for for a week now. I've 2 drives, SATA1 for OS and operating files, SATA2 for media storage. came home last week to an update manager window present and error in Transmission stating unable to second drive due to "Read Only" status. the drive was never set to read only status but following the update manager a reboot was needed. once rebooted, the GRUB menu came up (dual boot system), selected Ubuntu then booting stopped. blank black screen with blinking cursor. rebooted several times, checked bios recognition of both drives, replaced cables, switched power to drive to separate cables, used different SATA ports but nothing worked. finally removed the second media storage drive and Ubuntu booted normally. now any time i connect the second drive and reboot it fails to boot into ubuntu or XP. i removed the media drive and installed it in another computer and it worked normally. have searched everything i can but no answers have been found so far. wondering if anyone here has had similar trouble or has idea for what to try.
I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit with current 3.6.32-28 kernel
I have a Dell XPS 420 with a 500gb SATA drive on which Windows Vista is installed. I also have an additional hard drive that I wish to install for an Ubuntu installation. Is it possible to create a dual boot system with Windows on the original HD and Ubuntu on the newly installed HD?
Simply put, my computer will have 2 hard drives. The original hard drive has Windows installed. I would like for the second drive to contain the Ubuntu install so that the only thing changed on the original drive is the MBR (I suppose that's how it would work).
I am taking a course to truly learn Linux and am attempting to install Slackware 13.X to a separate USB hard drive. The intent is to keep Windows while learning Linux, and all I have to do is insert the USB drive when needed. I am using cfdisk and have no difficulty getting to the point where it wants me to partition the hhd. However, whether I have the USB connected or not, it will always present the HDA for partitioning. How do I tell cfdisk to recognize and set partitions on the USB hard drive? (i.e.) What is the command?
We have an external raid box connected to a debian squeeze server.Every new volume set I have created will be detected (as /dev/sdx) after a reboot. As this is our file-server I cannot reboot the server every-time a new volume set is created.Is there a way to make this new device visible.I tried already 'partprobe' and restarting udev didn't work eather.What is a good way to do this?
I'd like to install Lucid on a spare hard drive I have, so I can do my bit for testing it. I have a feeling that if I just burn the latest alpha .iso and install from that, it will replace my current GRUB, whereas I would prefer to simply add the Lucid install as an option in my current GRUB.
Of course I might be wrong, I just wanted to check before I went ahead with it. I was unable to find the info I needed via searching.
I have Windows 7 x64 on a RAID0 Setup and have a separate 120GB Hard Drive and want to DualBoot with Ubuntu! How do I go by doing that seeing that LiveCD is not detecting Windows 7 Loader? Twitpic : [URL]
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
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 have 4 SATA's in a RAID 5 array using mdadm. Yesterday when I started the computer the RAID did not build/mount. When trying to load the array manually I get the message "mdadm: cannot open device /dev/sd(a,b,c,d)1: Device or resource busy" The drives should not be mounted or in use. The output of the drives in mdadm (mdadm --examine /dev/sd_1) looks normal.
The weirdest part is that rebooting often changes which drive is marked as busy, it can be any of the 4 SATA drives. how to figure out why/what is being used and how to disable it? I have tried searching for similar threads here and in google and haven't found anything similar or that worked.
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.
