I am about to install Ubuntu as dual boot with Windows 8. Currently I have 3 drives installed. Windows is currently installed on a 74GB raptor drive, and then I have a 300GB raptor drive, and a 400GB hitachi drive. I know they are older drives but they are still running strong.
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 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 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.
