Hi,

This is a me-too. The only other factor is that an interrupt storm is
reported on the on-board vr0 and after that the SATA drive is not found.
If I disable the vr0 in BIOS or boot sans apic, then no problem.

atapci0: <VIA 6420 SATA150 controller> port 0xb000-0xb0ff,0xb400-0xb40f,0xb800-0xb803,0xd000-0xd007,0xd400-0xd403,0xd800-0xd807 at device 15.0 on pci
0
...
ad4: 238475MB <WDC WD2500JD-00GBB0/02.05D02> [484521/16/63] at ata2-master SATA150

when working.

The board is an Asus A7V600-X and the drive is a Western digital WD2500.

John
