  You do not give the actual information to hint you a bit more, how big
is your disk??? It usually happens when the Linux doesn't see the HD
controller, in Winblows mode go to the system->properties of the
controller and get the base address, when you get the prompt type in
linux ide2=0xaaa,0xbbb this should take care of it if the problem is with
Linux not seeing your controller.
