I had the same problem with another MB. The problem seems to be related
to the SB600 chip.
The only method I found to cope with is to use a kernel with the SATA
support totally disabled and putting the chip (BIOS) in "Legacy IDE
mode" if your BIOS has such an option.
I guess that the kernel > 2.6.20 will work as some enhancements have
been done in the kernel related to the SB600 chip.
Another problem is that the SATA drives are not created whith /dev/hd...
names but with /dev/sd....
If you can find an installer with a kernel > 2.6.20 I think that you
will have a full working system without any problem.
