Just got a new 1TB hard drive to upgrade my system. I first took out the old drive to just start with a fresh install of ubuntu on the new drive. I boot from the CD and get to the part where you partition the drive and nothing shows up. Just the partitioning tool and nothing in the window. I boot from a windows xp disk and the hard drive shows up and I am able to partition. I dont install windows. I put the old drive in as the master. I boot from the old hard drive with ubuntu on it. Go to Gparted to see if I can partition the new drive there but it does not show up. I run sudo fdisk -l and it only shows the old hard drive. I have no idea why ubuntu can't see the drive since it shows up in my BIOS and the Windows installer can see it.
