eSATA Express Card on mid-2009 Macbook Pro - Working in Ubuntu, not on bootable USB


Hello,

Looking for a general solution to a particular issue that I am having..

On my mid-2009 Macbook Pro I have a Dynex 2-port eSATA express card and it works perfectly (and natively) under Ubuntu 15.04 using kernel 3.19.

For the purposes of data recovery, I need to work from a bootable-from-USB program found here:

http://www.sysresccd.org/SystemRescueCd_Homepage

No matter what I have tried, I can not get my external drive recognized. When I boot from the default kernel in GRUB the card is showing activity lights and the card IS recognized by the system, but the drive is not listed as a device..

Any advice appreciated..

Thank you!

Why not put Ubuntu on a usb instead of system rescue cd?

Is your system uefi? http://www.sysresccd.org/forums/view...php?f=5&t=4410
