I know there is some smart people hanging out on this board, hoping one of you can help with this.
Here is the situation:
I have an extra computer that was running Win7 Pro x64. I have since upgraded that to Windows 10 Pro, and then after that, went through and did a clean install of Windows 10 Pro. Everything good so far. Mostly. The computer was running Win7 with the hard drives in a Raid 1 setup. Windows 10 didn't seem to respect that, and installed on one drive only. This was true for both the standard upgrade and the clean install. Looked into that, and it seems I would have had to load drivers from an optical disk or USB during the Win10 install to solve this.
That led me to saying, "oh well, I'll leave that be." So now I have (2) 1 TB drives in this PC leaving me a completely empty drive...
Figured I would throw an Ubuntu install on there, just to start learning Linux a bit. Already had an Ubuntu DVD prepared from saving some files from a laptop with a corrupt Windows install for a friend. So, I threw that in the drive and went for the install.
Now the problem. Ubuntu doesn't seem to detect the install of Windows 10 that is certainly there and running just fine. I've done quite a bit of internet searching on the problem. Had found a few things to try.
- Disabling UEFI bios, my MOBO doesn't seem to have it, so that wasn't it.
- Found a slew of commands to try entering via the ubuntu terminal. None of them seemed to do the trick.
Next thing I'm thinking of trying is installing Ubuntu first (wiping out the Win10 install). Apparently that will mess up the ubuntu installed boot menu, but that can be easily repaired with a boot-repair tool.
Basically just wondering if anyone has any thoughts or ideas to try. This is not a high priority thing, like I said, just an extra computer I had laying around that I'd like to use to play around with Win10 and Linux.
