Installing IDE HD on computer with SATA - dual boot XP - Ubuntu intended
Pentium Dual-Core CPU
E6300 @ 2.80GHz
2 X 500GB SATA HDD's
Motherboard: ASUS P5Q-EM DO
I would like to install Linux Ubuntu 9.10 on my new computer, on a separate hard drive, and create a dual boot Linux and XP.
I already own another 500GB HDD but this one is IDE. I would like to install Ubuntu on this one. The other two are SATA. The second one is used only to mirror the first one and protect me from a single drive failure.
I hooked up my IDE drive to IDE controller and connected the power cable. However, BIOS doesn't show recognize this drive; it is not visible in Windows explorer, or in disk management either. The jumper is on cable select (so I thought motherboard will decided on boot order, and as the first drive is SATA, it will boot first which is fine).
I double checked all cable connections and tried again, and there was no change. The drive (WD Caviar Blue PATA 500GB) is not registered.
