I just bought a workstation with 128 GB SDD and 3 TB SATA HDD. I installed ubuntu 12.10 in the SSD /dev/sda which works fine. Using gparted I set gpt partition table in the 3TB HDD and formatted it with ext4 file system. It works fine until I restart when ubuntu fails to identify the partition table. I am wondering what to do. Thanks.
