Hello All,

I am facing a very strange issue with my new installation of ubuntu hardy.

In BIOS my 2 SATA Fujitsu 250GB HDD are recognized correctly. In the Live CD only ony HDD is recognized. If I change the boot order
the other drive is recognized.

I have used also fdisk -l same result as described above. I have also tried to write the UUID directly in the fstab without any sucess.

A installation on one of the HDD drives not chnage the behavior,
during the boot I could see that the 2 drives are listed.

Mainboard VIA EPIA EX15000G
HDD MHX2250BT

Thanks for any help.

Best Regards

Brasilwarrior
