I have problem with my brand new SSD drive. Ubuntu installer doesn't detect it. Syslog says

It looks like some kind of hardware problem, but I don't think so. Disk is brand new. Can somebody help me?

This may be one of the reasons:

[    7.361162]  sda: unknown partition table

However, I find these warnings more worrying:

[   11.187652] ata1: SError: { HostInt PHYRdyChg 10B8B DevExch }
[   11.187656] ata1: hard resetting link
[   11.910482] ata1: SATA link down (SStatus 0 SControl 300)

[   17.227494] ata1: limiting SATA link speed to 1.5 Gbps
[   22.224753] ata1: hard resetting link
[   22.544563] ata1: SATA link down (SStatus 0 SControl 310)
[   22.544572] ata1.00: disabled

It looks like the communication between the SSD and the controller isn't going well. Could this be a cable issue? Or maybe switch the disk to another SATA port.
