    Default 3 sata drive boot issues

    Ok so here goes...I have 3 sata drives in my computer one has Windows 7, One has Ubuntu, and one has Back Track (which im trying for the first time today or atleast trying to )

    The 2 linux drives were in another computer that I use for my computer repair business. It had the 2 drives plus a 3rd with xp on it. ALL SATA

    So I put the 2 linux drives in my computer, boot order is cd then hd. Hard drive order is Windows 7 then Ubuntu and then Back Track.

    So as expected when I power up it goes into w7 like it should. However if i go into the boot menu on startup and select ubuntu it will load, i select run regular (not recovery console or memtest) then it hangs.

    And Back Track just takes a $h!t and doesnt even try.

    I have also tried both drives independently (only drive plugged in my computer) and they still wont boot.

    BTW the ubuntu is the latest 64 bit version.

    Oh and my specs are:

    Processor: AMD Athlon 64 x2 Toledo 4400+ 2.2Ghz (overclocked around 2.6ish)
    MB: Asus A8N SLI
    Ram: 4GB
    PSU: 800watt
    Graphics: XFX GeForce 8600 GT

    Any ideas could it be a graphics issue or something weird like that or a bios thing?

    Can anyone help me out with this^^^^

    First of all do not double post.
    Second it's hard to tell and based on your lack of details in the area of errors it could be a lot of things.
    I would suggest starting in the faq sections and making sure you meet the minimum criteria for BT there.
    As for the other OS's we can't really support your endeavours there, but someone may be able to help out.
