I am having the same problem with an amd64 ide based system here.
Oddly, I can just exit the busybox shell afterwards (without a modprobe
or any commands at all) and the system will then boot normally.  I am
guessing some sort of race condition, but I haven't had time to take a
look, so I've been holding off reporting.  Now that I see this already
open one, I thought I would add another data point.

Take care,
