im building a new rig just got it all put together and am trying to install ubuntu on it, i get to the par where it asks for patitions and it does not list any hdds on it. so i went back to my bios screen and its not detecting my hdds on the sata ports, any tips? i have 2x velociraptor 150gigs ea on a asus p6x58d premium motherboard

I see i got a lot of lookers, i went over the manual and turns out the topmost sata connections on my mobo are for newer hdds than the velociraptors i guess for ssds and stuff so i moved it to a different sata connector and it detected it, thanks for thinking! if you have the same problem in the future on a build there ya go! dont freak like me

Funny!!! Happens to all of us. I sometimes have to read the manual twice to find what I want.
