    So it seems there are overlying (ie conflicting) partitions on sdb and nvidia_aebeeibc (I'm reasonably certain these refer to the same physical drive - note the identical disk identifier):

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Please help-lost partitions after upgrade

    Thanks ronparent and oldfred - I think I'm beginning to get some insight as to what's happening here: I think Ubuntu is seeing the markers for the hardware RAID on sda and attempting to build an...
