Harddrive: ExcelStor J880s 80 GB
Optical Drive: LG CD ROM

thank very much

Earlier versions of Ubuntu won't run well with a sata drive. I am using the same mainboard, try any version 7.10 or later.

I had the same problem. I reformatted the hard drive with ext3 file system and it worked. I used Gparted utility to do the formatting. I used the live CD, that means you boot on the CD with Gparted on it, but you don't have to install Gparted. If you need more info on burning the Gparted .iso file, let me know.

From what I know, both your motherboard and your hard drive work with Ubuntu. I would try the newest release, 8.04 (Hardy Heron). 
Try setting the motherboard into AHCI mode rather than IDE mode (you should be able to change this under hard drive settings in your BIOS)
Also, the problem may be with your optical drive. Try swapping that out.  If you can't solve it from there, if you haven't already, try posting on the ubuntu forums.

Can we use Excelstor Gstor as a Slave Drive? If yes, how? What is the jumper setting required?


To configure the hard drive as a slave drive, you need to set a jumper on the hard drive to SL (slave)
The other jumper settings are MA (master) and CS (cable select).

How to format excelstor hardisk?


For your specific operating system, assuming that Windows is running, locate Admistrative Tools -> Disk management.
You should see Disk 0 or Disk 1 with your Excelstor 80GB drive: if you do not have a partition, create one or more partition, assign drive letter(s) and then format using the context menu.
If you do not see the drive in the Disk Management screen, then your Bios has not been setup properly or your drive is not connected properly.
Hope it helps.

I have changed hard drive to ExcelStor Callisto 80GB, and i can't update windows xp sp1 to sp2


What error-message(s) do you get?

Access http://www.microsoft.com/downloads
and download Windows XP Service Pack 3,
and install it.

You do *NOT* need to install SP2 before installing SP3.

Pin connection for 'master ..slave


I assume these are IDE drives since SATA doesn't require jumper settings. . .You will need to set the primary drive jumper to master[ma] & the secondary drive jumper to slave[sl]. Some systems require dual hdd systems to have both set to the cable select[cs] jumper. Check your motherboard or system manufacturer manual to see which setup your system requires. If you lost the manual most manufacturers have it availablr on their website under the support link. Hope this helps.

Internal 80gb harddrive excelstor j880


Was this 80GB cloned (copied) from an old 30GB disk?

Open Computer Management window doing this:

Start button - settings - control panel - administrative tools - computer management.
In the window that open, on the left hand side pane, expand Storage and click Disk Management. On the left hand side window, lower pane you should see a list of disks. See Disk 0,Basic <disk size>, Online. Do you see the 80GB as disk size? To the right you would see a series of boxes. Probably you see (C:) 30GB NTFS Healthy (system). Do you see to the right of it a box with 50GB (unknown partition)?

If so, you do have a 80GB disk, but only 30GB is a recognized partition by Windows. You can still use the the unknown partition. Post back here if you need instructions.
