I'm having pretty aggravating problems with my WD15EARS and WD20EARS sata hard disks running with my Gigabyte 880GA-UD3H motherboard (http://www.gigabyte.us/products/prod....aspx?pid=3758). I'm booting off of a smaller seagate sata drive and I manage to start up in about 45 seconds from grub to login (also odd since I'm running a 6-core 3.2ghz processor).
I have installed a sata controller (Rosewell RC-217) in a older PC. I ran the ubuntu 9.10 server version and I was able to install the OS. I was able to see the new sata hard drive I was able to format it. I could see everything about the drive but when the PC rebooted after the OS was installed it now can not see the hard drive.
I have 2 separate Hard Drives. One is SATA the other IDE. Windows 7 is installed on SATA drive and the other is a blank IDE hard drive. How can I install Ubuntu on the second IDE hard drive without removing or overwriting Windows 7 installed on the 1st SATA drive? I want to be able to dual boot between Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04.4
I'm dual booting W7 and Ubuntu (installed from Wubi). I've had it up and running a few times but today ,i have pressed power button multiple times while booting up and I'm getting a message from Windows Boot Manager when I select Ubuntu that wubildr.mbr is missing or corrupt. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi all, I am having trouble booting into my ubuntu installation. Details are at:
I have a Samsung laptop that was reformatted before I installed ubuntu via USB stick. When I turn the computer on it appears to restart 1x before loading up the boot menu. It the shows 1) windows boot manager 2) windows boot manager 3) SATA CD. I do not have windows installed.
