View Full Version : [ubuntu] 8.10 Beta will not detect more than one SATA hd

October 9th, 2008, 11:23 PM
I have been trying to install 8.10 beta on my system. The plan was to install the system in the following way.

1 - 160GB SATA hd - /, /boot, swap
3 - 400GB SATA hd - /home, in a software RAID5 array.

However, if I have more than one SATA HD plugged in, the installer does not detect any HD. I have tried to plug in every combination possible, but it refuses to see more than one HD. Has anyone else come across this issue?

Intrepid Ibex is still in development. You might do better here:

Bumping this thread. I have the same issue. Intrepid Ibex is no longer in beta...

More specifically, I've got two SATA drives and one IDE drive. The live cd boots fine and all three are available for normal use. SATA1 is on sda, SATA2 on sdb, and the IDE drive on sdc.

However, when I reach step four of the installer it only recognizes sdb.

When I remove one SATA, the other is visible but the IDE still is not. When I remove both, the IDE is still invisible to the installer.
