Let's start with this part.  Please file a new bug if any other issues
exist after it's fixed.

This adapter is handled by the libata piix driver

	/* Intel ICH4 (i845GV, i845E, i852, i855) UDMA 100 */
	{ 0x8086, 0x24CA, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, ich_pata_100 },
	{ 0x8086, 0x24CB, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, ich_pata_100 },

I think we should not do that, if at all possible.  The old IDE
subsystem has a number of problems --- e.g., see


for a recent report.

Can you get a full kernel log ("dmesg" output) from booting with the
usual Debian kernel (a squeeze, wheezy, or experimental kernel will
do) on the installed system?

Thanks much,
