    Can't install xubunt on my 320gb seagate hard drive.

    I am trying to install xubuntu 13.10. everytime I get to the part where i chose where to install it my harddrive dosen't show up. I can't do a fresh install of windows on the drive with out any issuses. Smart data from the drive says there are no problems. I tired using ubuntu 13.10 same thing. I also have two other drives that give me the same issuse. All 3 drives are seagate 320gb and were at one point part of a raid 5. I have tired reformating with gpart. I don't know what else to try and google isn't being helpful. Anyone with any ideas.

    Something that will give us a great wealth of information will be generating a boot-info URL.

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Info

    Then post the URL here.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    It looks like Boot-Repair could not mount drives either.

    You mentioned RAID. If drives were RAID they still have RAID meta-data on them and only RAID tools may work.

    If now using as individual drives you need to remove RAID meta-data.

    sudo dmraid -E -r /dev/sda
    sudo dmraid -E -r /dev/sdb
    sudo dmraid -E -r /dev/sdc
    Also check BIOS for raid settings

    Thread moved to Installation & Upgrades.

    You might have more luck here.
