I'm no looking for help neither instructions how to build kernel. I'm
just installing 8.1 RELEASE and svn it up to last week 8-stable. And
going step-by-step of handbook installing kernel I'm having a trouble
- it seems than new kenel doesn't recognize my HDD. I'm not doing
something special, in that case I'm for shure mentioned it. I'm just
building GENERIC kernel without any configuration of system after
installation, to tweaks, no tunes, nothing. It's a new GENERIC kernel
and it can't find my HDD but 8.1 i386/amd64 releases works well and as
I remember something about month ago stable too.

When it works it's just and ad0 hdd, no raid or special driver
I'm jsut trying to say than recent changes in kernel or kernel-modules
broke up my HDD support and I'd like to notice developres to check
where the problem is.
And of couse I've tried to switch SATA native mode and it doesn't
Loader on it's own stage easily detects HDD and root partition so I
can just select old kernel and boot up, but I'm not shure how he gain
access to HDD to mfke any conclusion, probably through BIOS interrupts
but it's out of piont.
And for my pity I don't know how to dump demsg without having any
serial connection or usable disk drive, maybe to flash drive, but I
don't know how. And anyway there's no real kernel painc, it just asks
for root mountpoint.
And for shure I've got an 2.5" Hitachi HTS542516K9A300 160Gb SATA HDD
If you need any aditional info I'll give it all, just ask.
