    SATA HD's not accessable - unrecognized


    I have two WD 750 GB SATA2 HD's NTFS (no raid) that I can not access with Knoppix or Kubuntu Live DVDs. The first HD has two Windows XP boot partitions. I boot to one partition for work and I boot to the other to play games. The Second hard drive is file storage.
    I recently added two "older" IDE drives, WD 250 GB & 350 GB. My intention was to install Kubuntu on the first IDE HD for a dual-boot system.
    When I installed Kubuntu, GRUB was by-passed and startup went straight to my Windows Boot loader as if I had not installed Kubuntu. I put in my Knoppix DVD to try and fix the boot problem when I realized that I can not see my SATA Hard Drives. Both IDE HD's show on my Desktop (HDA2, EXT3 Kubuntu Partition & HDB1, additional storage partition) and then I have a Hard Disk called "Hard Disk [nvidia_fafeibcd]. It appears this is found at /dev/mapper/nvidia_fafeibcd. I can not mount this or access it in any way. Obviously, can not set up emergency file server for these drives either. I can open QTParted and QTParted lists my SATA HD's as /dev/sda & sdb so I know they are there. Please, see lspci & demesg output below. I can boot into Windows XP on both Windows partitions just fine and access all of my drives from Windows.
    Any idea how to mount and access my NTFS SATA hard drives with Knoppix? Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm baffled.
    Currently using Knoppix DVD ver. 5.3.1.

    Computer: EVGA 680i SLI mobo, Intel Q6600 proc, 4GB 1000Mhz DDR2 SLI-ready RAM, Dual nVidia 8800 GTs, two IDE WD HDs (250 & 350 GB) & two WD SATA 2 750 GB HDs (no raid setup), Windows XP installed on first and second partition on first WD SATA2 Hard Disk.

    Sata Hard drives solved still have boot problem

    Used the cheat code "knoppix noideraid." I now have all of my hard drives and partitions readable on the desktop.
    Apparently, sata/raid controllers are causing the misconfiguration or mis-recognition even though I am not using a raid configuration!? Would love some input on this if anyone can elaborate.
    I still have the problem with boot bypassing GRUB with my Kubuntu partition, which I am working on.

    Where are you booting from?

    It may be that you are booting from the wrong disk. Check out your BIOS, there may be options for determining which drive it tries to boot first.

    Thanks!!
    Yes, part of the problem was that Boot was not set to the correct hard disk, which I corrected. I ran grub-update. I had to edit a few lines in the GRUB config file and then it booted correctly.
    As for the recognition of my hard drives, in Knoppix, I still have to boot using the cheat code "knoppix noideraid" to have all of my hard drives recognized correctly. In any event, after being able to boot into my Linux partition, Kubuntu DOES recognize my partitions correctly so I really don't have a system issue now but I would like to know why knoppix handles this differently on this machine. It is supposed to be the hardware recognition master and the penicillin of Linux distros. (Need to satisfy my "need to know.") The parts on this PC are very poular and around 1 & 1/2 years old so so It shouldn't be a hardware recognition issue.
