View Full Version : [all variants] Locating Hard Drive Model Information

April 21st, 2009, 08:35 PM
I am running 8.10 on my machine and have no GUI available. I need to cat / grep for the exact make / model info for my S-ATA drives that my system is running. Can someone please tell me how or where I can determine the exact make and model info of my drives installed on Ubuntu?

Try running "dmidecode" in a console window. Another nice utility for this purpose is hwinfo. You'll have to install it:

sudo apt-get install hwinfo

Then you can just enter hwinfo.
