I went on the #ubuntu chan where someone gave me the idea to check the
settings in the BIOS. The slave had to be enabled. That was the trick.
Thus, the people on the chan are also of a great help (I use
http://pastebin.com to give the outputs and give the Url on the chan)
Best greetings, Joyce Markoll.
