We're going to release with all CDs, and they all use the same software,
so it's a null distinction really.

I think we need the lspci and lspci -n info that you left out. The
initrd should be loading ide-detect, seems more likely to me it's not
loading some other driver for your hde drive.

If I were you I'd try to get it to boot to a shell in the initrd
(unfortunatly I always forget how to do this, it's not as easy as it
should be) and fiddle around with modprobe until I knew what module it
was omitting to modprobe or what module was perhaps left off the initrd.

Anyway, I'm reassigning this installation report to initrd-tools, since
the bug is pretty clearly over there, and its real maintainer can
probably do a better job debugging.
