Maybe this is a very late reply but I haven't read this list for a while
and this post/problem seems unsolved so I make a reply.
Maybe you need to adjust the settings in the bios.
I have the experience that to install and run Windows XP I need to
*disable* native sata in the bios on some notebooks, e.g. HP 6710B, but
to install and run Linux I must *enable* native sata in the bios.
