http://ubuntuforums.org – this is the mobo i got , when i run ubuntu 12.10 it does nt recognize the hdd. Then i went to read the OS support at their site and that is the ugly answer i found GA-MA770T-UD3 (rev. 1.0) http://ar.gigabyte.com/support-downl...=1681&pid=3243 any suggestion? besides changing the mother?
