Right, I'll spare the backstory about my old PC with the SCSI hard drive and just say this: I have no idea how to get Ubuntu 9.10 to run on the thing.
I've installed it at least 3 times, and every time I try to run from the SCSI hard drive, I get "No such device: 44f4edc7-1953-4b9f-a19d-eb4ce3685fd7". And yes, that's the entire message. I try to boot from the other hard drive partitions, I get similar messages. The install never made it seem like I had any hard drive problems, I installed the boot loader to the correct drive, but when it gets to the GRUB menu where I choose how to run Ubuntu, it just doesn't work.
My question is: Do I need to format the drive and reinstall again, or is this a hardware issue?
