Something similar happened to me. I'm guessing you have a more recent
Mac that needs ATA 100 support for the kernel to find your hard disk.
This has to be compiled in and cannot be merely a module unless you're
using an initrd.img, which you probably don't want to do.

My strategy was to go through and compile in almost everything that said
"ATA" in it because I wasn't sure which kernel module covered my
controller/drive. This worked, but I'd welcome a more efficient solution.
