Second SATA drive unable to mount?
Recently, a friend of mine decided to switch from M$ to Slack, to which i was ecstatic about. However, we've encountered a few difficulties in installing it on his computer (or rather mounting his old ntfs backup partitions).
Problem: Unable to mount additional SATA hard drives beyond the first (using both kernels sata.i and test26.i)
Note: SATA drives are not in any RAID setup.
Mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb /mnt/yadda (and sdc-h) all return comments about missing block devices (ie nothing to mount)
sata.i kernel allows booting, reading and writing to main hard drive, which is SATA. test26.i (didn't want to go to the trouble of compiling 126.96.36.199 after sata.i didn't even work) provided a 'kernel panic', which i'm guessing is indicative of no support to the SATA drive (?).
Three SATA drives (2 seagate and 1 samsung)
MSI RC410M-L Socket T (LGA775) Motherboard atx
(Motherboard has onboard SATA controller)
The bios indicates that the SATA drives are attempting to emulate IDE drives, but mounting hd* (other than hda and hdb, which are cd and dvd drives) yields no results.
Any thing I'm missing here? Any help would great!
