    gottaslay; Hello -

    The system is not going to second guess what you want to do.
    If you want a drive to be available upon booting up, ya got to tell the system so.

    One way to do so is explicitly declare the mount.
    That directive is in the /etc/fstab file.

    for some pointers on what you might want to do.

    I personally only mount my data drives as "on demand"; As I want to be fully aware of what ever might happen.

    tell me, what to do
    THE current(cy) in Documentation:

    Happy ubuntu'n !
