The problem is not necessarily "shoddy drivers," although that is likely with Linux + new hardware. Of course, it could also be some BIOS bug(s), damaged hardware, or a combination of issues. If it's a hardware quirk fixable in the BIOS, then yes, the board manufacturer does have something to do with it.

I guess you are suggesting Abit will be unresponsive if I personally email them about this sata problem I'm experience in Linux, while Asus would be responsive and release a bios?
No; for all I know, Abit might be very responsive and helpful. I was making suggestions under the assumption that you could return the board. Since you can't, it doesn't matter--you're stuck with Abit.

Anyways, check your PMs.
