Linux installed, now lost drive


Likes # 0

I decided to play with Linux so I downloaded Ubuntu live onto Cd (I S O ), on my system I have one primary drive and two other drives which I use for extra storage, I formatted one of these drives and installed Ubuntu onto it, after a reboot this drive disappeared and does not show in Bios,what have I done wrong?. Regards

Windows will not see the drive, so you need to load one of the programs I said, preferably the manufacturers one, to show the drive and follow instructions.

If you know the manufactorer of the drive (i.e. Maxtor- Seagate etc) and the operating system, let us know and I will find the correct program for you.
