the help is really appreciated.. i tried all of the ones you said...
sda1, sda2, sda3 then sdb1, sdb2, sdb3, then sdd1, and so on an on... i went to 6 for each of those!!!!!
i sware to god linux is starting to get on my nerves again!
gonna keep on trying but i am seeing no light at the end of the tunnel
THE strangest thing though!!!! when i start up the computer linux actually recognizes the damn drive! (when its searching for new hardware)
strangly enough it says serial ata 150 (it should be 250)
i am not sure what to do.
what i am going to try next is get my other SATA drive, the one thats only 120GB and see if it actually works with that one because the 250 gb drive was not detected by windows either... i had to install a driver for the system to recognize it. (can't really do that for linux though)
k again, any more idea's just tell me, i will post if the other SATA drive worked.
