Thread: 2 problems pls help where is my hd?




  1. Default 2 problems pls help where is my hd?

    hey
    prob 1. after a fresh xp install on hard drive 1/3 my 300gb sata drive 3/3 (connected via pci sata adapter caard) did not show up and i would like to recover my music and movies

    i think this happend because i didnot install the sata drivers while windows was installing so now it thinks that whole hard drive is a defect and its asking me to reformat it...

    can some one tell me a simple way to recover that hard drive?

    prob 2. ubuntu. i have the latest desktop build of ubuntu and for the life of me can not get it to dual boot with windows xp.. i dont know what im doing wrong, i set up a primary ext3 / and then the ext3 /home partion and a swapp file all set to primary and then i set up grub to go do the / install partion... what am i doing wrong?!

    on your xp box... did you install sp2? the system will not recognize large drives without it.
