Our default kernel at Stratus doesn't work on our SATA-based hardware either. I think that the kernel has to be built with SATA support enabled, but I'm not actually sure. Your question might be better answered on the kernel mail list, as I don't think it's actually an installation issue.
(I could be totally wrong though! :) )
