    Hello all,

    So I recently installed a SATA SSD to my "new" Linux machine, but I am not able to find where the drive is. I am wondering if anyone has some ideas as to where I can look for this SSD within my system and preferably through the terminal as I a currently working to become more proficient in using the terminal. Thanks in advance.

    Run 'dmesg' to see klog messages including hardware probe results, it will likely be a device named sd*, eg. /dev/sda, /dev/sdb, etc.
