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.

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:

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 - No SATA Drive In Installation's Partitioner?

Feb 17, 2010

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 :

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 82P965/G965 Memory Controller Hub (rev 02)

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Partitioner - 'Starting Partitioner' Freezes At 47%

Jan 11, 2010

I am having a problem with Installing Ubuntu 9.10 on My desktop. I have burnt the disc at the slowest speeds possible, and tested it on my alternate PC's, and it works. Not only, I have extensively tested the disc to verify it's integrity. So it ISNT the disc. It is a component of my Main Desktop that is causing the issue, I am of the thought it is my IDE hard drive.

Firstly, My Specs;
CPU: Intel Q9550 Quad Core (Running at an Overclocked 3.4ghz)
Motherboard: ASUS P5QL PRO P45 Chipset , 1600 FSB , etc
RAM: 3gb of DDR2 Team Elite RAM (running at 667 in Win 7)
Hard Drives: 500gb Western Digital ECO Sata Drive (Win 7 System Drive) and an IDE 250gb Western Digital drive reserved for Linux (I have coded a boot manager to switch between the two)a DVD-ROM drive is on the other channel of the Single IDE port on the Board
Video Card: ASUS/Nvidia GTS250 1GB

I think that covers all the vital hardware.

My problem is that when i boot into the live CD, and attempt an install, the installer freezes at the point of setting up the partitioner/scanning drives, at 47%. SO, the partitioner does not get a chance to start.

I have a gaming system, and it has all the latest gear, i7, 16gb ram, etc and it installs on that (i plugged in a resh drive to test)

This system I am trying to use ubuntu on is my MAIN system, I use it for study (PhD Science...science geeks rule!) and I am attracted by ubuntu's features, especially for scientists.

Ubuntu Installation :: Disk Partitioner Freezes On Installation?

Dec 18, 2010

I'm a complete noob trying to install Ubuntu Server 10.10 on my first build for use as a file/media server.When I get to the step to partition the drives, the installation freezes. The screen says "Starting disk partitioner" and the progress bar stops at 45%. It has done this three times now, and the longest I waited for it before rebooting was over an hour.I am installing from a flash drive containing the .iso file, and I have the following hardware (in case that matters): asus p7h55-m pro mobo, core i3-540 CPU, 2x4GB ram, WD caviar green 1.5TB, WD caviar green 1TB, and Kingston 8GB SSD.

Ubuntu :: 9.04 - 2nd Hard Disk Not Detected At Start Up?

I Installed Ubuntu 9.04 with XP theme. Then I installed Picasa and I have pictures on a 2nd hard disk. When I restart the PC Picasa doesn't see the 2nd drive. The 2nd HDD is mounted under /media/disk and clicking on the "My computer" icon (this is XP theme), I see the 2nd hdd. Now, I have to add this disk to Picasa again for it to scan the pictures. I don't want to do this on a regular basis.

Ubuntu Installation :: USB Detected Beofre The Sata Disks Are?

Oct 19, 2010

used to run ARC linux and Windows 7 on my computer and i am now trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 X86_64When i used the live disc of Ubuntu 10.04 and load the installer it finds my four harddrive they way it should... sda,sdb,sdc,and sdd...When i however try the same with ubuntu 10.10 it displays my usb cardreaders drives first and then my hardrives as sde sdf sdg and sdh.I tried installing ubuntu with the reader unplugged and then reconnecting it after installation...But when i then boot with the reader attached it says it cannot mount drives sda,sdb,sdc and sdd becuase they are not ready.I think it is again detecting the usb cardreader before the sata controller ...Is there a way for me to alter the boot detection order so it will find my harddrives first and then the usb cardreaders ports ?

Ubuntu Installation :: SATA 3.0 & IDE Mode : No Common Cd-rom Drive Was Detected

Mar 12, 2011

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.

Hardware Setting:

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.

Debian Installation :: No Boot Disk Has Been Detected Or Disk Has Failed

Nov 3, 2015

I installed Debian on my PC with a Acer Stock motherboard (xc600) with amd64 and after the installation finished it told me to remove my installation media and reboot. After reboot I was returned this message ' ERROR: No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed.'. I have verified with gparted using mint live OS that I have Debian installed on my system.

I got believes that this may have be caused by a broken grub or I need to configure something I don't know how in BIOS.

I will update the topic later..

My installation media was a USB 2.0 flashdrive with a Debian 8.2 Jessie Installer and 9 different Linux distros. I have installed Debian multiple times before on my laptop and never had this problem so I know how to go through the installation process and set the partitions.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Partition Sata Disk

I'm trying to install 10.10 on a sata disk. In terminal, dmesg recognizes the disk at /dev/sda. The installer recognizes it as well, but the partition area is blank and the option are greyed out. How can I go on? BTW, on the disk currently Fedora 14 is (fresh) installed and working fine, but a software install script is written specifically for Ubuntu. That's why I need to change to Ubuntu and it's no hardware problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Partitions Not Detected Outside Of Lucid?

Jul 17, 2010

About a month ago I did a clean install of Kubuntu Lucid. I believe it was after that point I was unable to run other LiveCDs without some problems -- I first noticed that swap partitions failed or weren't detected. It appears that partition managers such as gparted, fdisk, etc cannot detect my partitions and interprets my hard drive as "unallocated" (this has been tested with multiple LiveCDs). However, as far as I can determine, all the LiveCDs with applications for mounting drives and HD backup ARE able to detect the partitions.Furthermore, when I am in Lucid, I am able to detect the partitions with gparted.It's very odd... I've only found a few situations like this on the web. Could it have something to do with the GPT?[URL]
