Obviously Ubuntu is seeing the HDD fine, it is a 4GB FAT32 partition. The CD is also working - you've booted off the live CD by the look of it.

The reason you may only be seeing 4Gb of the partition (if it's larger than that) is that fat 32 has a filesize limit of 4 GB. There may be a work around, but regardless of whether you stay with windows, have a dual boot system, or migrate entirely to Ubuntu you really need to update that FAT32 Partition.

Even windows will have a problem, if its boot files get moved outside of the 4GB address range. That's one of the reasons that Microsoft disabled FAT32 installations on larger drives in XP and beyond. (ME and 95 could do it however, as long as you avoided the gotcha in the previous sentence.

What are you trying to do? If you want to install Ubuntu on that machine the easiest way is to just run the installation program and select "Use the entire disk", in which case it will repartition and format the disk for you before installing Ubuntu. Backup any important data first, of course.

The current version is 10.10 by the way, or you might consider the LTS release, 10.04

friend neither i am trying to install Ubuntu nor do i have windows installed on my system.i had a gigabyte motherboard and that was having some problems so i replaced it with the current one.when i started the system for the first time with fedora-14 being installed in my 40 gb hard disc,i started facing the resolution problems.the link to tht problem is
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1695554
.so i formatted fedora and installed mendriva inside tht partition.but after installing mandriva the system failed to boot from hard disc.then i used a live cd of Ubuntu 9.10 (having same resolution problem) to use my pc but it failed to detect the hard disc.then i made a bootable USB which is a 4 -gb kingston with FAT32 format. currently i am running my machine with that bootable live usb only.now here came the problem ,the BIOS was detecting the hard disc but Ubuntu failed to mount it.the problems were same with ubuntu 10.10 installed and even worse i guess.that was all.
what all things i need to do so that my system may detect the hdd.thank u .:confused:

You may have a dead hard drive judging by that BIOS POST screenshot SMART command failed

what you can do is download samsung's diagnostics program to test it. Here's a link to it http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd/support/utilities/Support_Shdiag.html

or download Hiren's Boot cd and boot from the cd and run samsung's or one of the other diagnostics programs it offers

it could be a sata1.0 vs sata2.0 issue - on your motherboard are there any jumper settings you can change (jumper 5 & 6 maybe?)

Also - in the bios - you've got a RAID controller - suggest change the settings to make it a standard sata connection (or may be run in IDE compatibility mode if you've got that option).
