SATA hot plug


Hi,

Does SATA hot plug work in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 64bit? When I plug in a SATA device while the OS is running, it doesn't seem to register in fdisk. It worked when I was using Mandriva.

How do I get it working under Ubuntu?

Thanks.

Be sure your BIOS has the SATA ports configured in AHCI mode and not the legacy IDE mode. Hotplug requires AHCI mode. Of course if this is the same system and configuration you were using with Mandriva, that would not be the issue.

Thanks. Turns out it was a problem with the drive.

You really should mark this as solved. You can do that using "Forum Tools".
