I have an Edge 14. Intel i3 M370 model.
I ordered a OBHC and installed a 160 Gb SATA drive, loaded with WIN 7. In the main drive bay I have an Ubuntu OS setup.
Trying to set up a dual boot configuration. But, when I boot the drive and enter the BIOS set up, the drive in the caddy doesn't show. If I let it boot from the main drive, Ubuntu starts up.
If I put the Ubuntu drive in the caddy and nothing in the main bay, "NO OPERATING SYSTEM."
When I look at the computer in Ubuntu, the OS7 drive is there. All three partitions (Lenovo, OS and startup). I can mount them, etc. When I use Disk Utility in Ubuntu, the drive shows up listed under the SATA controller and is located at position 2 of the SATA bus.
I updated the BIOS and it is now 1.26.
Still no sign of the HDD in the caddy. Very odd. When I power up the computer, the LED in the caddy does light up.
When I run sudo update-grub in Ubuntu, the WIN 7 loader shows up in the list. So a bootable OS is seen. But if I select WIN 7 loader in the GRUB list at boot, I get a "no such drive" message, and am lead back the the GRUB list.
In the BIOS, the config menu, the startup list only includes HDD0.
Is there some secret BIOS trick I need to play? Correct me if I'm wrong, but there aren't any jumper settings, etc. on a SATA drive, right? Nothing there to change.
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
