Maybe I can get the HW over here, paypal can be used to transfer the
funds in that case...

Sure find my config attached currently used with plain releng_7.
It might be worth while to compare HW revisions etc as well as there
might be differences.
One thing you could try would be to install a 6.2 system and if that
still works just grap ATA from releng_6 as that is now the same as in
-current and should fit almost cleanly into 6.2 as is, then give that a
run. Depending on the outcome we'll know more about where to look for
For references sake could we please get a list of the actual HW that
people have problems with listed here, as detailed as possible please.
