[SOLVED] Neither Ubuntu liveCD nor Gparted Disk recognize my harddisk
after having problems with wubi i wanted to install ubuntu using a liveCD. but the installation manager did't let me start the installation due to a lack of hdd space - but actually i'm having enough space. so i tried to make a new partition using a gparted but this says too that there is no hdd in my computer.
theres already a bootable windows 7 on my PC so the hdd works all fine.
long story short: linux doesn't see my HDD, windows does.
i already tried 'fdisk -l' in gpartedlive and ubuntulive; it shows nothing, not a single drive.
asus a8v-x motherboard
amd opteron 180 (2,20ghz dual core, 64bit)
ati radeon hd 4xxx (don't know exactly) graphicscard
HDD: samsung sp2504c (serial ata 3; 250gb)
1GB noname RAM
thanks in advance
