Hi, I'm not exactly a newb, but perilously close.
I'm trying to install a brand new 2TB Seagate Barracuda SATA HD on my Ubuntu 8.04 (2.6.24-29-server) machine. I'm following step by step instructions I found here:
ls /dev/sd* finds the drive, but fdisk /dev/sdb returns 'unable to read'.
I've asked Google for answers, and I've been able to rule out the following possibilities:
- Drive is fine, I bought four at once and swapped the drive to check. Swapped out drive is fine in Windows machine.
- SATA cable swapped out.
- SATA port swapped for definitely working SATA port.
Any ideas? Do I have to do anything in BIOS?
Thanks for your help.
