Installing LinuxMint/Hard drive not detected
This is a new Hard Drive on an old pc that is to be converted to LinuxMint. Went through the motions of installing the OS, it appeared to work, but upon restarting the HD was not detected, it states "Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk and Press Enter:" Going through the BIOS the HD is just not listed. However, it did appear to install the OS, even downloaded the language package and a few other things. If I insert the DVD in and run the OS from there I can see the HD and all other drives. If I open the HD from the "Computer" icon these folders are listed, bin, boot, dev, etc, home, lib, lost+found, media and ten others.
So, guess my question is how can I get the system to recognize the drive upon boot-up?
This is a Pavilion 533w, the HD is a "Western Digital Caviar SE WD800AAJB 80GB 7200 RPM IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive"
It came with the jumpers set for Cable Select, that didn't work so I tried the single and Dual Master positions, none worked. I never formatted the drive assuming it would happen automatically since the entire drive was to be allocated to this OS, but it didn't prompt me to do so.
