SATA HDD not detected [SOLVED]
ok, i've got a strange problem. i bought a spinpoint SATA drive, had to mess with the jumpers to get my motherboard to detect it. anyway, here's the problem, i've tried to install BSD and ubuntu on it, but once i've partitioned and installed on it, the motherboard is unable to boot from it (it's not listed as a boot device). stranger still, i'm still able to access it from a liveCD. i reconnected my IDE drive in the hopes of using that to store the MBR then boot distros that lay on my SATA drive but with no luck. now my motherboard doesn't detect the SATA drive at all (i can't access it at all). i'm using a VIA chipset motherboard if that helps.
