my hard drive makes noise when i boot into ubuntu 8.10 x64 but when i boot into vista home prem x64 it does not. im dual booting the two systems on my dell inspiron 1520 laptop. the hard drive only makes sound like that when the computer has ubuntu running when its not plugged in but when its pluged in it does not. vista does not seem to have this problem when off the charge.
