Summary: sata_nv (10.2) does not work on MSI K9N Ultra 2F (nForce
570) and prevents installation on SATA-disk; OpenSuse
10.1 does not have this problem
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Critical
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Kernel
AssignedTo: kernel-maintainers@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: hermanns@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: qa@xxxxxxx


When booting OpenSuse 10.2 (x86_64 DVD, i386 DVD, and i386 live DVD) no SATA
hard disks are detected. I have a MSI K9N Ultra 2-F (MS-7500, nVidia nForce
570; BIOS 3.30 from Dec, 2006), my CPU is an Athlon64 X2 4200+.
Here are the correspondig lines from dmesg (i386 live DVD)
--- cut ---
scsi0 : sata_nv
ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)
ata1.00: qc timeout (cmd 0xec)
ata1.00: failed to IDENTIFY (I/O error, err_mask=0x4)
ata1: SRST failed (status 0xFF)
ata1: SRST failed (err_mask=0x100)
ata1: follow-up softreset failed, retrying in 5 secs
--- cut ---
After that I sucessfully installed OpenSuse 10.1
(SUSE-Linux-10.1-Remastered-DVD-x86_64.iso) on my PC.

Nevertheless I want to switch to OpenSuse 10.2 x86_64.

Since Fedora Core 6 (2.6.18) behaves like OpenSuse 10.2 and Ubuntu 6.10
(2.6.17) behaves like OpenSuse 10.1, I think that the problems are related to
the major changes of sata_nv/libata (switch from version 0.8 to 2 and from scsi
directory to ata). Maybe the old version tolerated more BIOS- and acpi table
flaws.
