View Full Version : [ubuntu] 2nd Hard drive lost

May 30th, 2009, 01:45 PM
I have a machine with two hard drives. Initially I had a dual boot system, and have recently upgraded to Ubuntu 9.04 with this setup. All was fine at this point but the system was a little slow and I was not using windows at all, so I decided to clean install Ubuntu from CD.

I therefore re-formatted the primary drive and installed Ubuntu without problems - except that it does not see my other drive at all.

Does anyone know how to tell it that it is there? Info as below:

Many thanks for the advice,
