Just checked the Gigabyte webpage. There have an BIOS update, but the
description says it just updated some new CPUID to support new CPUs.

And after about 2 months' irregular system failure and data lose(perhaps not
the fault of the fakeraid but my own fault), I gave up the fakeraid totally. I
just installed XP and SuSE on each disk. But I'll try to test whether a BIOS
update would fix the problem(hope I wouldn't lose my data again).

As mentioned earlier, just OpenSuSE after 10.3 have this problem, Gentoo,
Fedora(any version) and OpenSuSE 10.2 works fine. And the release note says
that the 10.3 used libata, perhaps this was the source of this problem. Is
Fedora or Gentoo also uses libata? I'm not familiar with these so I can't
decide whether it's the fault of the BIOS or some other things.

I suggest this bug be closed, because there are few people having this problem
and it can be solved by simply adding the magic "libata_ignore_hpa = 0" to the
boot option.

I'll paste the info after updating the BIOS later.
