It worked just fine on 10.2 Alpha5, Beta1 and RC1. This was the first
release for which the problem showed up.

The most common problems have been the non-Intel IDE support provided by
a JMicron chip ('cause Intel's latest chipsets don't include IDE
support, just SATA) and a improper selection of driver for one of the
Ethernet ports. Both of those had work-arounds and have since been
fixed.
