Ok, so 8-CURRENT boots? There have been modifications to the boot
loader, I think they will be present in 7.1.
The controller is a different problem - apparently the driver doesn't
recognize it. There are a few things you can try but all of them depend
on that you can compile and boot a different kernel on the machine (i.e.
different from what's on the official CDs). If you can do this (for
example, by installing a test system on a drive on a different,
supported controller, or possibly on a USB drive), ask on hardware@
mailing list for further instructions.
