SATA 2.4.21-rc4
Hello all,
I have a brand-new-today a7n8x deluxe with two Raptor SATA drives that I was hoping to install linux on. I have an oldschool "regular" hard drive in the as well temporarily to boot from. If I compile siimage right into the kernel, it doesn't ever detect the regular ATA at all. If I compile it as a module and insert it afterwards, my regular IDE stops working with errors like "hda: lost interrupt". Has anybody gotten SATA working under linux with this board?

PS It's awesome that now they have a 3com controller onboard too, so that I don't have to use their proprietary driver!

I have seen this problem too with the exact same drive on my kernel. I was unable to avoid this error (and subsequent loss of disk access) if I enabled 32-bit access.

You'll have to set your hard disk parameters manually (hdparm), when I enabled 32-bit transfer via the -c1 switch it would take the drive offline. Also it did this with the latest kernel if I try to push DMA access all the way with the -X70 switch.

I'm still playing around with these settings to find a good stable combination. From I've seen online many people are having good stable results with the following hdparm command:

hdparm -d1 -X66 /dev/hde (provided your target drive is recognized as hde).

Good luck!
