 Do you mean something like this?
 atapci0: <Promise PDC20378 SATA150 controller> port 
 0xe800-0xe83f,0xe400-0xe40f,0xe000-0xe07f mem 
 0xfdf00000-0xfdf00fff,0xfde00000-0xfde1ffff irq 18 at device 8.0 on pci0
 ata2: <ATA channel 0> on atapci0
 ad4: 78167MB <Maxtor 6L080M0 BANC1G10> at ata2-master SATA150
 Note that I currently have a SATA disk attached to the controller
 but in the past (till a couple of days ago to be more specific)
 I ran an PATA disk on the same controller; I did have to enable
 some specific options in the BIOS though so that the controller
 was enabled during startup (cannot recall from head what these
 options where, but they are on the onboard settings).
 Perhaps you can try FreeSBIE or another Live-CD that enables
 you do display more information then you currently give since
 the current information is rather worthless to resolve the
 problem (nicer said: we need more information from you then
 just the words that something is not working; we cannot diagnose
 anything now and need to -see- something).
 If you can manage to get into freesbie, please show us the
 info from /var/run/dmesg.boot to start with (and if possible
 start FreeSBIE with 'boot -v' to get verbose output which might
 enlighten us even more.
 Thanks in advance,
 Kind regards,
