View Full Version : [ubuntu] Blinking cursor before grub loads, multiple Hard drives.

November 6th, 2010, 10:01 PM

Not really an Ubuntu problem but it is driving me mad.

I've just build my new pc. Hard drive wise I have
SATA 1 60gb where I have installed Ubuntu
SATA 2 & 3 are set up as RAID 1 for storage

When I turn the pc on, I get the blinking cursor before I get to Grub / loading the OS.

If I unplug SATA 2 & 3 then Ubuntu loads fine.

The Bios boot order is correct.

What do I need to do to get Ubuntu to load with all the hard drives attached?
I'm running 10.10 64bit
