We have seen several reports with this issue, but as no one on the d-i 
team has access to this hardware it has been kind of elusive.
There are just to many variables in SATA support (different drivers, BIOS 
settings, kernel config, ...).

Your summary is the best I've seen so far. Thanks for the work you have 
done on this.
You are correct however that we won't be able to do much about this for 
the first release of Sarge: kernel config is frozen and also everything 
in the installer's initrds. However, IMO this issue could be something 
that we could try to fix in a point release.

If you receive any relevant info from the kernel mailing list, could you 
please add that (or links) to the bug report you filed?
