You should be able to get the interrupt routing right by
en- and disabling "the right"[tm] devices in the BIOS-setup.
I don't have access to my machines right now, but if I remember
correctly, it was best to just leave all devices enabled.
Don't even think about switching the (S-)ATA devices or the
SCSI devices off.

I may have some time for BIOS/K8S/amd64 experiments in the
later evening (living in GMT+0100).
