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'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.
Have Ubuntu installed on a 1TB SATA 3 Hard Drive. Also have Windows 7 installed on a separate 1TB SATA 3 Hard Drive. Unplugged Windows Hard Drive before installing Ubuntu as previous versions of Linux always destroyed my Windows installation. What will happen when I plug in the Hard Drive with Windows 7?
