OK, I'm repeating my posts from another forum, so some context may be missing. I'll try to address any issues I can. Anyway: I'm trying to install Win7/Ubuntu side-by-side on my PC, but for some raisin the Live CD won't notice my HDD. I looked around on the net, and although a few ppl had similar problems, no solutions were found, and the problems weren't the same. a) the HDD is 500GB so there's plenty of space left b) GParted shows no HDDs on the system, not even an error c) sudo fdisk -l does nothing at all Could it have something to do with the boot device order? Might my HDD be on its way out? What do you think?
