Question about Excelstor Technology J880 Hard Drive
I am new with ubuntu, but when I install ubuntu 7.04 on an ide harddrive I finish the installation without any problem, but when I try to install the same version in my new P.C. Ubuntu can't detect my SATA drive. I am using the Ubuntu 7.04 Live CD. My P.C. specs are the following:
Processor : Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4,
Motherboard: Asus P5VD2-VM SE
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.
