    Prior to 8.04, ubuntu did not include "out-of-box" SATA drivers, which meant switching SATA to an IDE compatible mode in the BIOS until it was fully installed and upgraded. Unfortunately I don't know how to change the compatibility mode in an add-on card.

    Can I suggest: Try the 8.04.1 CD, and if it still fails to see your hard disk drive, maybe we can troubleshoot further? (There's no need to complete the installation of 8.04.1, you can just try it as a test to see if your HDD is recognized or not.)

    will that also work with the controller ?

    As I do not have a SATA slot on my MB , that's why I am going for a PCI Sata Controller , so I cannot plug the HDD onto the MB

    Yes, it should work with the controller as well. You'll have to try it.
