Can't see 2nd SATA HDD

Postby xtcvapor on Mon Aug 17, 2009 5:35 pm

Hello, I'm new to Linux in general.

Here's the problem. My computer is a AMD Athlon 64, 2GB RAM, nVidia GeForce 7800 GTX, 80GB IDE (originally came w/ it and has Vista), a WD 320GB SATA (Mint installed) and a WD 250GB SATA. I'm having problems seeing the 2nd SATA drive under computer. I can see the 80GB Vista disk, and my own filesystem. Nothing, not even the partition editor can see. I had this problem in Ubuntu 9.04 as well, but after I did all the updates, no more problems seeing the 2nd SATA. I like Mint more than Ubuntu, so I would like to keep it. I even tried adding pci=nomsi to the grub line, and that hasn't worked either.

Thanks

Rob

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
