I am trying to install Ubuntu Server 12.10 on my Proliant Microserver N40L but I am having problems.

I want to install it on the 5th drive, connected to the 5th Sata port. Everything seems fine until I reboot to start the OS... which doesn't happen.

The hard drive is seen as /dev/sde, sda to sdd are the data drives and I do not want to touch them.

I am not sure if the problem is due to grub or if I am choosing the right partitioning mode (tried LVM, full disk, etc)

Any help?

Have you tried changing the boot order on the bios? It's probably trying to boot from the first hard-drive instead of the fifth.
