Can someone out there file a bug report against the release media (all flavors) and request for us to enable the "libata PATA support" in the kernel? We'll still default to the "old" PATA stuff, but with this, we should be able to get support for the missing chipsets, too. I'l definitely want feedback from those of you with newer boards when the beta is released so we know it's working. -- Chris Gianelloni Release Engineering Strategic Lead Games Developer
