Ok i checked my harddrive and this is what i got

The IDE one (Media storage+the problem) has the pin saying that it is
a master and also has a slave(cd-rom).
The SATA one (windows+linux) has no pins and only connected to itself
and the motherboard.

> Assuming your first drive is sda[1/2/3], the second should be sdb[1/2/...] and third one sdc[1/2/..] and so on. The problem is that your system from the beginning (i.e., when kernel started booting) didn't pick up sdb[1/2/...] at all. There is something going on beyond Linux's hand. Maybe check your primary/secondary slave pin at the back of second hard disk?
