Hmmm. Haven't got my 9.0 yet but will soon. I managed to get 8.2 to boot on this chipset & disk using a 2.4.21 Mantel kernel, so I'm surprised that the 2.4.21 on 9.0 doesn't support it. What symptoms are you seeing?

to use my custom kernel to boot.

Another alternative is to put the BIOS in [SATA] Legacy mode to install, then swap kernels and set the BIOS to Enhanced (check the archive for some more detail).

Cheers, Dave
