[ubuntu] Trouble Installing New HD in Thinkpad A30

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I've been using Ubuntu on an old A30 laptop with good results. Lately the system has been locking up on a regular basis. Everytime I reinstall, it is trouble free for a few weeks. I suspect the hard drive is bad and have purchased and installed a new one. Is there anything in BOIS I need to do to have the computer recognize the new HD? When I try to install the OS from the CD, it gets to the partitioner and just shows a blank page...nothing to select or change. If I quit the install, thelive CD then runs Ubuntu just fine. Any Help or ideas? (Hardware)
