Trying to install Ubuntu 13.10 on Dell Inspiration laptop but it isn't picking up the hard drive during the install process.

If I Try rather than Install and open GParted it picks up the hard drive fine. Then while in Try I run Install it still does not pick up the hard drive.

It is a SATA 500GB hard drive.

Any help on this would be great.


Got it working by running the following command:

sudo dmride -rE
