HDD(s) incorrectly detected
Binary package hint: ubiquity
I have the following system:
500GB - WesternDigital WD500AKS-0 - empty/unpartitioned
160GB - Maxtor 6YM160M0 - Contains various paritions including Ubuntu 9.04
160GB - Maxtor 6YM160M0 - empty/unpartitioned
All of the above HDD are connected to a built in SATA controller (ICH8R) on my Intel motherboard.
I currently have no problems with my Ubuntu installation.
I just tried to run 9.10 RC and after the GUI loaded it told the 2 Maxtor drives contained errors etc. It couldn't detect anything on either 160GB and said there were numerous bad sectors.
At this point I ran the full installer to see what the partition tool in the installer had to say. It could detect the 500GB WD but described the 2x160GB Maxtors as being a 320GB RAID array. No wonder it thinks the drives are corrupted! These drives are not in a RAID array.
Any ideas why the partitioner thinks they are?
Thanks in advance
p.s. I've just seen the message below to post some logs. I'll try and post these files in a minute...
