    Rather peculiar. I have it currently running on a SATA drive. Complete
    install took about 20 minutes. Oops.

    Tell that to the poor guy who can't install. If he used Windows he would be
    working.

    My Toshiba Netbook has a SATA drive and that CAME with Linux installed.
    Installing new versions is a breeze, unlike XP where you need to provide
    third-party drivers to install on a SATA drive...

    If you even bothered to read the forum thread, no where did it
    say that you can't install it on an SATA drive. I have as well
    as others.

    The OPs question was........

    "I just wondered if there were any known issues with installing
    Ubuntu on SATA drives or if this is being caused by some other
    issue."

    And the answer is...."No, there are no known issues."

    Not true with the new motherboards. No floppy needed to install XP or
    Ubuntu on a SATA drive.

    Simply not true. If he installed Windows he would have a good working
    machine, but he is stuck with that crappy Ubuntu that he will figure out
    very shortly is just junk. Maybe I should reply to his post and let him
    know!

    You must have reading comprehension problems. He said, "I am trying to
    install 9.10 Desktop, i386, on a 500GB SATA drive. The computer uses AMD
    dual-core processors. I can't remember the type of motherboard off-hand; it
    might be an Abit. The drive has been zero-filled from previous installations
    of other operating systems. (I have also tried installing the 64-bit
    version. When I try this, I get a black screen with the cursor blinking in
    the top left-hand corner for several minutes before the screen goes blank.".


    Seems to me that his screen went black. Sounds like an issue to me. Oops.

    He then states:

    When I boot the computer I get the screen to choose the language. Then I get
    the screen for the various options (run without changing the computer,
    install, etc.). When I hit "Install", I get a screen with the Ubuntu logo in
    white which "pulses". After a few minutes of this the screen goes completely
    blank and there is no more activity. I have tried choosing other options
    without success.

    Sounds like he has a problem. You have a problem also. You have no
    reading comprehension. No wonder, you use Ubuntu!! LOL!


    He then says:

    I just wondered if there were any known issues with installing Ubuntu on
    SATA drives or if this is being caused by some other issue.


    The above statement is what you remember. I suggest not drinking or doing
    drugs before posting.

    LOL!

    I suggest you re-read what you post before *trying* to put me
    down.

    The guy had problems and asked if there was a known issue with
    SATA drives. I never denied he had a problem.

    You claimed that Ubuntu couldn't be installed on an SATA
    drive.

    I simply proved that your claim is false, and not what that
    article states at all.

    I don't want to register on the Ubuntu forum and reply. I think he already
    knows that Windows is the right choice. Just give him a little more time.

    It maybe be false for others but for him it seems to be true. You purposely
    tried to mislead by only posting a portion of the post. Shame shame shame!

    My Netbook is only one year old. Needs third-party drivers to install XP on
    the SATA drive....(that's with Sata capability. You can of course turn off
    the SATA in the Bios in which case XP will install normally without
    third-party drivers but obviously you lose the SATA benefits...)
