Greetings fellow gentlemen and women.

You guys are pretty smart.

Maybe you have some ideas.

Linux can't see 2nd drive.
Under Puppy Linux, it can't see my second drive.

Here is some responses from their forum.

Any ideas ?

Thanks.

I'm guessing there's some setting in BIOS that would allow them to be seen.

Disable RAID or maybe try the "Legacy ATA/IDE" or "compatibility" mode for the SATA channel.

I have a Phoenix Bios and I don't see an option for Legacy ATA/IDE.

Why would fdisk see the drive if any BIOS setting made a difference ?

Is it set in a raid ?
Is it a sata drive or some type of legacy ?

Boot the box with gparted live disk and fix whatever is causing the drive
to not be seen.

I appreciate your feedback.

As a scientist, I made an educated guess as to my next step.

I took the second drive and created 2 partitions.

Then Puppy Linux was able to see them.

Six months ago, I thought Linux was a piece of sh*t.

Not any more.

Linux still has some issues, but I am pleased with it.

Take care,
Andy

Well,

Linux has no issues in and of itself.
What problems you might be experiencing might be due to the distro
or you lack of understanding.

Be patient, this will a good learning process and you will realize how
poorly other OS are built.

I would not be too harsh on Linux distros.

While many are lacking, some are quite efficient and very safe.

I dual boot to Windows,Puppy, and Mint.

I have NEVER gotten a virus or malware with Linux.

Same can NOT be said for Windows in any version.

My connect speed is consistently higher with Linux.

LInux is a learning experience, but well worth it.

Take care,

Andy
