[Bug 1596281] Re: the target drive is not found when connected via USB 3 while installing Lubuntu alternate
@ Joseph Salisbury (jsalisbury),
I have been trying to think.
- I don't think it helps with a new kernel, because Lubuntu desktop of
the corresponding daily-live iso file works (can identify the drive via
that USB 3 adapter). See post #4.

ultimate upstream kernel.
I still think that the bug is located in partman, or some related tool,
that should identify connected drives. Of course I may be wrong, and I
will continue testing the current daily alternate iso files. I can also
try Ubuntu Server. This way I will be getting new kernel versions ...
The bug is still there with the current Yakkety Alpha 1 iso file dated

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.
