[Bug 1596281] Re: the target drive is not found when connected via USB 3 while installing Lubuntu alternate
I continued testing the problem with
- the released version lubuntu-16.04-alternate-amd64.iso
- another adapter/box to connect the SSD via USB 3.
And this is the result:
This (new) adapter, Deltaco USB 3.0 to SATA II cable fails also with the
released version, so it is an old bug.
An (older) AKASA box for 2.5" drives to USB3 and eSATA works via USB 3
(with the released version as well as with the current daily iso file).
Both the new adapter and the old box are recognized during boot, Lubuntu
boots from them, and are recognized by the desktop live system and its
installer. So this bug seems specific for the debian installer and the
particular hardware in the Deltaco adapter (shown as Asmedia by lsusb)
'Bus 004 Device 002: ID 174c:55aa ASMedia Technology Inc. ASM1051E SATA
6Gb/s bridge, ASM1053E SATA 6Gb/s bridge, ASM1153 SATA 3Gb/s bridge'

the target drive is not found when connected via USB 3 while
installing Lubuntu alternate
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
While trying to install from the Lubuntu 16.04 LTS alternate amd64
daily iso file, the target drive is not found when connected via USB
This happens with an SSD connected via USB 3. The corresponding
desktop iso file works, and the released Lubuntu 16.04 LTS alternate
This problematic iso file can install into the same SSD, when
connected internally (connected via SATA).
I am writing this bug report booted from Lubuntu 16.04 desktop i364
daily, and I will attach the output of some command lines to
illustrate how the SSD is recognized (and should be recognized also
but the alternate installer).
I think the the bug is located in partman, or some related tool, that
should identify connected drives.
