Bug Description

Ok, I removed Windows XP Pro from my pc after using the Feisty Fawn Live Dvd for about a month. Using it, all my hardware worked (2 IDE hdd connected to Mb<Master & Slave>, 2 Sata hdd connected to 2 ports on Mb plus 1 Sata hdd connected to Highpoint 1540 4 port Sata interface card, 1 Asus DVD Writer.) Motherboard is Asus A7N8X Deluxe. I took the plunge because after using it, I felt that Ubuntu was a far superior OS to the XP Pro that I was using
and that since everything worked, there would be no real risk involved in cutting myself lose from the MS yoke.
I wiped and formated the 10gb IDE system drive that I used for XP and installed Feisty on to it, all went smoothly..... until I did a reboot into what I thought would be my brand new, installed ubuntu system; It didnt.

I then posted this on Ubuntu questions in launchpad: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/12661
"have tried now for over a week to get a fresh install of ubuntu 7.04 to boot on my hard drive. I initially used a 10.1 IBM hdd which was my old windows xp system drive. I completely raw partitioned it and installed feisty from the live cd and the installation went without a hitch, until the reboot!. the pc gets to the splash screen and then just freeezes. I get the same with recovery boot.... no error message it just stops. I have tried installing server, text mode, and command line and all of them just freeze shortly after saying its loading.
In desperation I went out and bought a new 160gb maxtor drive and installed feisty to that but with the same result, it just hangs at the splash screen never to move again. The thing is, everythig works great from the cd version(and the dvd version, but it just wont work when installed to the hard drive. I am at my wits end as I have already removed windows xp from my pc and dont want to go back to it. Please can someone help me to get 7.04 running on my hard drive as I have invested both time and money in this and I really want it to work, but from my hard drive,not the cd. I tried debug mode but it still just hangs, either at the splash screen or in recovery mode, both without an error message. the thing is, it installs to the drive great, with no errors, it just wont start up properly on the hdd. Help! Please!"
I got few replies and had lost a lot of sleep when I reached this point.....
Eureka! I have solved the problem ubuntu is no installed on my new hard drive.
I think the developers need to look at this problem though as it was only after trying to
use a PC Linux live cd that I got a proper pointer to the problem.
Unlike the Ubuntu 7.04 Live Cd which loads and runs flawlessly on my pc, the PC Linux one would not load up in any mode... it just crashed after picking any loadup option.
When I used the v switch I say a line that said "nforce2 not in 100% native mode" and this was the clue I needed to try adn solve the install and bootup problem.
My problem with the Ubuntu install stemmed from the fact that I wasnt getting an undestandable error message from Ubuntu when it kept on locking up on boot. When the splash and quiet was removed from the kernel boot line (or recovery mode was used) the only message I got was "hpt37xxx has no clock data saved from bios", which told me nothing and besides it then went on for about five lines after that, all about PIO modes for various hard drives. PC Linux's "nforce2 not in 100% native mode" was more informative to me as it told me that perhaps it was something not native to the NForce2 that was the problem and so it proved. I took both sata drives and plugged them into the motherboard, and the one remaining sata drive plugged into my HighPoint 1540 4port Sata interface card, I removed (I didnt remove the card although that would have been the next step.) The PC Linux live cd booted up fine after that with no errors so, I reinstalled Ubuntu with the drive not connected to the Sata interface card, and yes you guessed it, when I booted up from the hard drive it worked first time and pretty soon the login screen was there!!! :)
So my options now are to see if there is a fix for the incompatability with the HighPoint 1540 4 port Sata interface card and apply it, if not then it will have to be a new motherboard with more "native" sata ports as I need the use of that drive and ubuntu will not recognize it even if I hot plug it in after boot-up.

Many thanks to all who tried to solve my problem and especially to Mike Ocran. If he didnt give me the PC Linux live cd to try I dont know when if ever, I would have got Ubuntu to run from my hard drive. Future Ubuntu releases could learn from this.... the PC Linux Live CD wouldnt run with the problem it saw with the interface card (kudos to Ubuntu for being able to bypas that problem and load normally), however its reporting of a problem was clear enough to indicate where the problem might lie, unlike Ubuntu's "hpt37xxx has no clock data saved from bios" which told me nothing. Perhaps if the Ubuntu Live CD had not loaded up on my pc but had given me the message the PC Linux one did, I would have got the solution much sooner.

However the problem is still not solved. I can boot up feisty and now gutsy from my hard drive as long as I do not plug the SATA hdd into port 1 or 2
of the Highpoint 1540 sata interface card, if I do, I get the same problem. If I plug the drive into ports 3 or 4 then the OS will boot, however I cannot see the drive or access its contents.
I have tried the gutsy live cd and here I get a different problem. Once logged in I can see the drive but I cannot access its contents so what has changed
between the Feisty Live DVD and the Gusty Live Cd to cause this. If I could lift the feisty DVD setup and put it on my hard drive then I would do that and be done with gutsy, for at least I know that the feisty Live Dvd environment works but I dont know how.
I will post below the dmesg that I get from my current installation of gutsy along with my gutsy fstab contents. I will then boot into the feisty live DvD environment and post the same. Perhaps someone will be able to tell me how to get my drive working when I boot from my hard drive and not the DVD.
One other thing, my interface card is a HPT374 SATA device but it seems to be using a HPT366 driver which is trying to set up my Sata hdd as Ide drive, which it is not.

Unforutnately this issue has not been solved. I now have to wait until I cann afford to upgrade my motherboard with one that has more native sata ports.
I am also very disappointed with the support that I received about this issue as when I posted it I was a new ubuntu user and although quite au fit with the windows os and its quirks, not so with ubuntu. Various users have tried to help, but no support from the top techs. Happily I like ubunt so much that I wont go back to windows now.

Yours Sincerely

That controller is actually a PATA controller with some very nasty PATA-SATA gludge added on top of it. It is a wonder it ever works anywhere in any conditions. Try Hardy Heron though before despair, you never know...
