    I didn't try the thing with the cd, but it sounds about the same. I can restart the comp and see the drive perfectly fine. It's only if I shut it all the way down that the drive is not recognized any more.

    how is the drive formatted? it could be that windows isn't closing the drive properly when it shuts down and Ubuntu is recovering the state and returning it to normal on a warm boot.


    Well, I can tell you how it's formatted now, because the first time it told me it wasn't formatted, I formatted it by going into drive management from windows. I've had the problem before and still after that.

    Thankyou for the info, I'll ask my husband what kind of drives they are because I can't remember.

    So it's a possibility they don't like being out of raid? I hope that's not true because neither of us have any idea how to do a dual boot with 2 raid drives hanging out in there. Do you happen to know if I raided them back together how I would go about setting my Ubuntu back up? Would I have to reinstall it?

    Last time I installed Ubuntu, we didn't unplug the raid drives and it broke the raid apart. I'd assume that we would unplug them if we had to reinstall Ubuntu but how do you go about setting Grub back up?

    Sorry for so many questions, this is the first time we have dealt with raid drives. I drive my husband nuts because I'm always messing with stuff. I love having Ubuntu on here, but I always wonder if I should just give up windows for it. Wow runs decent in wine. I don't know...

    Gigabyte SATA Raid Controller, but it's not hooked up to the raid plugs. What else do you need to know about it?

    Tekkub, I normally don't do either of those things with my computer. Normally I shut the screen off and just leave the rest on overnight. Not really sure which is best for the computer.

    This D drive used to be part of a raid setup, the one I told the story about getting screwed up a couple weeks ago. We've reinstalled and moved things around a couple times since then. I should say that one time today when switching to Ubuntu to see if the data was really still on that D drive(because it's mounted in ubuntu), ubuntu locked up upon loading and said waking up, which I'm not sure why that happened.

    Someone on the Ubuntu forums tried to google the problem and found some people with the same problems under Vista, but concurred it could even be a drive letter problem while loading into Windows.

    I'm really not sure at this point what to do to fix it. I appreciate the help very much. I hate feeling like my system is unstable. That D drive is where I keep everything(which is now backed up like 4 times all over the place so I don't lose it).

    I have 4 hard drives in my computer, 1 with windows Vista on it (C), 1 with all my stuff on it for windows(D), 1 with Ubuntu 8.10 on it, and 1 that is unused(had linux on it).

    Here's my problem. When I log into Windows, it keeps trying to tell me that the D drive is not formatted. The only way to fix it is to log into Ubuntu, mount it, and log back into Windows. The drive works until the computer is shut off, then if you turn the computer on and go back to windows, it tells me again that the drive is not formatted, even though I can go to Ubuntu and see the data on it just fine.

    Has anyone ever had this problem? Any idea how to fix it? I'm basically afraid to use the D drive at all for fear this problem is going to wipe the drive. Any help you could offer would be great. Thanks.

    I've always liked ubuntu and linux mint quite a bit.

    Windows 7 is pretty darn nice. Have wow all installed, so I shall be seeing how that goes later today.

    Coming to you from sunny Ubuntu, sharing it's gorgeous hard drive with Windows 7, opposite 500 gigs of Windows Vista. Too bad we couldn't have figured this out yesterday :P Thanks for your help guys!

    Which is why you unplug the drives you're not going to use for the system drive when you install an OS.. ALWAYS... :P

    One drive for system, one drive from data you don't want to lose.


    I offered that suggestion, but as of this moment I don't remember why he said he didn't do that. Thanks Tek btw, I might actually be able to set up things the way I want it.

    So, if you have a second Tek, what if I want to reraid the 2 250 gigs and install Vista on them. Then I want to partition the 120 in half, and install windows 7 on half and ubuntu on the other half. Tell me if my steps are right if you don't mind:

    Reraid the drives, install Vista and drivers.

    Unplug the raid drives, use Windows 7 to partition the 120g in half, install windows 7 on one half.

    Here's where my confusion is. Ubuntu needs to add an entry to the MBR. There's now a MBR on the 120 drive where Windows 7 is, but, am I going to be able to choose from either version of windows and linux? Sorry to sound newish at this, but I've never had raided drives and normally just installed windows to one drive and linux to the other drive. Thankyou for the help, I much appreciate it. We can take this to another thread as not to derail the windows 7 thread if you like.

    There wasn't any place to backup the files as my only external drive was the one I put into the computer.

    So I wanted to come back today and give the good news, unfortunately there is only bad news to give. Installing the new drive went fine, my husband I don't think could have foreseen what happened after that. Windows 7 did NOT detect the raid drive, which was fine, but would not reformat or partition the other drive, kept giving an error. So we gave up on that. We decided to give the whole drive to Linux, which neither of us thought would be a big deal. Ubuntu noticed the raid drive, but only as 2 250g, not one drive.

    Neither one of us thought that the MBR being on the vista raid drives would be a big deal, but in installing to the boot record it somehow basically blew up the raid setup and made both drives unrecoverable.

    It's unfortunate, I lost a lot of music, my husband lost an instant messenger he wrote. I lost all my wow ui's, all my wallpaper, any visual styles I had worked on. Many, many programs and serial numbers that we have incurred over the years. So anyways, you win some, you lose some. I can't think of anything we could have done differently, my husband went to school for computer science so he's pretty decent at what he does. I'm pretty sure we will have to unraid the drives and leave them apart in order to the linux to write to the boot record without breaking stuff. At this point I'm unsure.

    We'll be tackling the rest of the saga tonight when he gets done with work.

    Thankyou for the help :D
