Cheers, I will give it a try and provide feedback if "it" happens again.

Is it PATA?

Yes. This chipset doesn't have SATA, only PATA.

Ahh, ok, it's not sata_nv at all then, it's pata_amd. On the same chip, totally different controller though.

PATA doesn't normally use hard-resets as a means of error recovery - that would mean hitting the RESET line, which I don't think most controllers can do on software command (it usually only gets asserted on power up or hitting the reset button), unlike on SATA where there's a defined way to trigger a COMRESET which is mostly equivalent. Also, that resets both devices on the channel, unlike soft reset which is specific to one device.


Why do you have 2.01?

for the DVD drive?

Can you please attach full boot
