I have just got a 2nd HDD ( 1TB Seagate) and want to add Ubuntu to boot from that 2nd hard Drive.
The C: drive has Windows Vista running ... so it will be a dual boot system.
I have a Ubuntu installation CD which has previously worked for dual boot with Windows Vista, and Ubuntu being installed on a 2nd external hard drive (that disk broke - hence the new disk. - this original external Hard disk had been a boot disk from another PC )
But this install of Ubuntu seems to work, but just wont boot afterwards.
I have partitioned the new drive with Windows Disk Management; setting up the primary partition as active.
But I cannot find a way to make this partition a boot partition ... and I think this must be the cause of the failure to boot.
Does anyone know how to do this? ( I tried bcdboot , but couldnt find the bcdboot program.)
Also, when installing Ubuntu ... the Ubuntu installer just does not see the Windows NTFS partitions ... Ubuntu claims to see only 125GB of space, whereas it is a 1TB disk and Windows disk manager sees 934GB of space ... peculiar ..
Any advice appreciated
