http://ubuntuforums.org – I have 2 Hitachi Microdrives that I want to use as the boot drives for Ubuntu. The model I have is HMS360604D5CF00 and they are only 'True IDE enabled'. They are exactly the same as the this one on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/Lot-2-Hitachi-4G...a_Memory_Cards I can see and install Ubuntu but when I boot grub starts but does not boot the operating system. I have tried Ubuntu server and a standard Ubuntu installation. Does anyone know if these drives will boot and run Ubuntu? If they will work how can I get them to boot? (Hardware)
