Re: hard disk problem



But since the drive is Serial-ATA i think it should support UDMA-6.When I enable "SATA as RAID" hdparm shows UDMA-6 but sets the drive to run in UDMA5.
I get an error on running the command hdparm -X70 /dev/sda which sets UDMA6.

A re-install is not going to make a difference. The first thing I
would do is look at the specifications of your drive to make sure it
supports UDMA6. Just because the controller supports it, does not
mean the drive supports it. The output of hdparm suggests that it
doesn't.
