Re: sata disk failure?

Hi Guillaume,

I've just noticed your problem on debian-amd64 list. I've just installed a new Debian system and I've run into this problem also.... Nforce3 motherboard, SATA discs (2 200G Seagate). Hvae you got any solution? Or do you have still the problem? What about driver developers? I noticed you cc-ed them into your messages.

best regards,

Thanks for your help Jeff.

During my experiments I plugged an unpluged the drive numerous times. I also tried another SATA cable, but same thing. Even on the other motherboard SATA plug. I closely examined the drive and it seems right. like new in fact. The motherboard is even newer, and so is the cable.

Is your idea consistent with the fact that the drive is _alays_ recognized in the bios, and _always_ recognized in linux ? All the time it fails with the messages "nv_sata: Primary/Secondary device removed" a few seconds after the console promt is displayed. Sometimes I have the time to mount the drive, sometimes not even.

Here is a small report in attachement, done with 2.6.11-rc4.
---------------------------------------------------------------------- -- * Hardware is nforce3 250GB, booting debian pure64 on pata (Maxtor 30Gb 6E030L0) drive. The goal is to mount data found on a sata disk (seagate 200Gb ST3200822AS). The pata drive holds / and lvm partition with /usr, /var /tmp and /home. The ultimate goal is to switch all this to the sata drive, which already holds a (barely used) swap partition.
 * Soon after boot the console displays:
nv_sata: Primary device removed
nv_sata: Primary device removed
nv_sata: Primary device removed
nv_sata: Primary device removed
