Known issue :-(
Package "udev" will get installed with the "desktop" task.
This can break things on "/dev".
To fix this you have to at least reboot after installation once more.
There is currently work in progress on this issue, so could you try a daily
build, or at least RC3 (when out) and report back?

To get better SATA support you have to install with "linux26" or "expert26"
on the installation boot prompt, instead of only pressing <Return>.

Could you try this also and report back?
