Re: SATA install - AMD64 - success story
Sorry, I've seen a lot of stuff on the list lately which makes me say
"What?". Installed to a Seagate Barracuda 7200.7, via a Via VT6420
southbridge's SATA connection, absolutely flawlessly, with the Debian
AMD64 Sarge images.
Ditto a Dell EM64T server with some messy ICH5/6 setup.
I've really no idea where people get all their SATA issues from, it's
not had issues for me since Woody 3.0r2 was current.

I found that Ubuntu can install to the SATA drive but Debian Sarge
cannot. I've used all sorts of remastered installers, including a
2.6.11 AMD64 version. The problem was not detecting the disk, and was
eventually solved by manually finding and doing an insmod on the
ata_piix module (on the 2.6.11 remastered installer). Hope this is
