View Full Version : [ubuntu] LiveCD not recognizing SATA drives on nVidia MCP55 SATA controller

May 1st, 2009, 06:40 PM
I have a XFX nForce 680i LT motherboard with the MCP55 SATA controller and the newest 2.6.28 kernel that comes with Jaunty does not see my drives. Has anyone else had this problem with nVidia chipsets? If I use kernel 2.6.27-11 it sees my drives and I can boot.

00:0e.0 IDE interface: nVidia Corporation MCP55 SATA Controller (rev a2)
Barracuda 7200.10 SATA 3.0Gb/s 500-GB Hard Drive

Thanks for any help.

Oh yeah, the error I am getting is this:

"SRST failed (errno=-16)"

I've tried edd=on, noacpi, noapic, apm=on, irqpoll, all_generic_ide, and pci=nomsi kernel parameters

Sorry for the bump, but I am having this issue as well.
