I am trying to install Ubuntu Server x32 on my IBM eServer xSeries 365. The installer says it can not recognize my drive.

I have 2 hot-swap Maxtor ATLAS 10K V 73GB Ultra320 SCSI drives and both are visible to my BIOS.

What should I do?

Are the jumpers on the drives set correctly? Can you try the drives one at a time and see if it makes a difference? – rishimaharaj Jul 11 '12 at 19:52
What do you mean? Also i forgot to mention They're Maxtor ATLAS 10K V 73 GB Ultra32 SCSI. – Olaf Jul 11 '12 at 20:03
Jumpers are little pins that designate whether the hard drive is primary/secondary/master/slave. Check here for how to do that. Also, are the drives formatted? See here for a thread that has some resemblance to your situation. Lastly, one other thread was resolved by configuring the raid card correctly. – rishimaharaj Jul 12 '12 at 12:14
Ok i think it probably needs configuring. And thank you very much :) – Olaf Jul 14 '12 at 16:24
If both drives are visible to the hostadapter then they are already jumpered to different SCSI IDs. (BTW. Why a SATA tag and Ultra320 SCSI drives? ) – Hennes Aug 26 '13 at 18:32
