[ubuntu] RAID issues with 9.04, disk not showing

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello All, This on behalf of someone I am trying to help with getting Ubuntu installed. Ubuntu 9.04 comes up nicely from the live CD, but it seems it cannot detect his hard drives, theres nothing under locations / computer. (It can see USB sticks, so it is working). It's a RAID setup, and the device shows up under device manager as: INTEL (IR) ICH8R (lots of numbers) DO SATA RAID CONTROLLER Are RAID arrays often a problem for Ubuntu? Is there a recommended way forward? It's clearly going to be tricky to install to an invisible disk! (Hardware)
