Default Re: SATA question

did you make oldconfig with the .config file from your 2.6.6 kernel?

if you had of libata would have been selected with support for silicon image.

To make your 2.6.7 behave like your old kernel quickly, make menuconfig and select the following.

Device Drivers ---> 
   ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support  --->
       < > Silicon Image chipset support

Device Drivers --->
    SCSI device support  --->
       <*> SCSI device support   
       <*> SCSI disk support   

Device Drivers --->
   SCSI device support  --->
      SCSI low-level drivers  -->
[*] Serial ATA (SATA) support
        <*>   Silicon Image SATA support
If you want to stay with the ATA driver (I don't like it myself), I would definatly set the drive with hdparm!
Particulary the udma mode, and irq unmasking etc.
