SATA problem on sata_nv (NFPIK8AA-8EKRS)
Last modified: 2006-03-10 06:59:06 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur:
CPU: Opteron 140EE
Memory: 512MB x 2 (ECC-Reg. DDR400)
I have begun to use a PC with a Motherboard named NFPIK8AA-8EKRS.
The Board has two on-board SATA controllers,
one is called Nforce4 Professional 2200(CK8-04)
other is called Nforce4 professional 2050(I/O-4).
And each controller has four SATA ports.
Thus this board has total 8 SATA ports.
I find when a SATA Disk which FC4 is installed
is connected to a SATA ports controlled by I/O-4,
the disk is not boot without the option of "acpi=noirq".
When the Disk is connected to CK8-04,
Boot process works fine.
I have took pictures of monitor
showing error message in booting without "acpi=noirq".
I also put dmesg's
Former shows the log when I connect the HDD to the port controlled by CK8-04,
latter shows one when I connect the HDD to the port controlled by I/O-4.
If further information is needed,
I will post it as much as possible.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Power off the PC
2. Connect the SATA disk to ports controlled by I/O-4.
3. Power on the PC
