The problem is worse with amd64 kernel. Same symtoms with apic
enabled however with apic disabled the system is unable to find any
hard drives (or DVD ROMS) and thus the work around for i386 does not
work... The boot messages indicate that with apic disabled the kernel
is unable to allocate IRQ's for ata[0-4] devices. Is this expected?
Since ata0 is having the problems (ata[1-4] appear to 'work' fine
except no devices are found, there are some) could a potential work
around be moving the two hard drives to the 3rd and 4th SATA ports
(they are currently on 1st and 2nd)?
Have a good festive season
