I have a new computer with a Seagate ST500DM002 SATA internal hard drive.
I am trying to install Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit on it but the installer does not recognize/detect/see the hard drive. When I reach the Installation type step, the panel which is supposed to show devices and partitions looks empty.
sudo fdisk -l shows only
/dev/sda1, the USB drive from which I am running the installation. I have already tried the following two solutions without any success:
sudo apt-get remove dmraid
- Switch the SATA mode in the BIOS from IDE to AHCI
I am sure it's not a hardware related problem as I have already successfully installed another operating system on the same computer.
The output of
sudo lshw -class storage -class disk follows:

Any idea on what I could do to fix this problem?
