I've got 2 HDD one 200gb with win on it and the other 80 gb with ubuntu linux on it. When i switch off the windows hdd there are on disks shown in mac os installation, but when I switch it on they appear only in disk utility and no formating or mounting is possible but mount button is active and it is kinda frustrating
