Description Martin Rehder 2007-11-27 01:06:24 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20071105 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:
SATA drive is not recognized. multiple Messages at boot are:

ata3: COMReset failed (errno=768), retrying in 10 secs

After 2-3 minutes, system boots, but SATA drive not there. This drive works fine when I boot windows (it IS my windows boot drive)

Above link to fedoraforum shows man steps and additional output as requested.

Further research resulted in trying boot options of:

pci=nomsi, nommconf

with no change in results. SATA drive still not found.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load Fedora 7 with aforementioned kernel on ASUS P4S800D-X motherboard with attached SATAS drive
2. sit back and boot.
3. cry

Actual Results:
systems boots with nothing in /dev or /media that is mountable for SATA

Expected Results:
should have been able to see/mount SATA drive

Fix is in, in updates-testing.

To install:

 $ sudo yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update kernel

Comment 3 Martin Rehder 2007-11-28 01:18:17 UTC
Yup, that fixes it alright. 
But, it dorks up my nvidia driver so I'll wait until there is one of those that
meshes with this kernel and its released.

Many thanks,
