It seems that you ran into the "SATA is now supported by the SCSI
driver" problem.

At this time the libata based driver is loaded for your harddisk

and the 'old' IDE-Driver cannot be loaded any more.

disable one of these two conflicting drivers, but notice that you'll
need scsi disk support for the libata driver and the devices will change
from hd?? to sd??
