View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu can't find hard drive at install

I know there's another thread on this but nothing on that helped me. I live booted from cd and USB, I can go into GPART and see the the partitions, but when I go through the install process I can't select anywhere to install it. Below is the output of fdisk -lu. Also, I went into BIOS and changed the SATA setting to IDE and that didn't affect anything. I can post system information if that will help. Thanks in advance for any input.

Welcome to UF :-)
Are you using a SATA3 port? Or a raid array? Is it a Mac?
