Dear people,

I have a barebone Asus Vintage2-AE1 [1]. This box has a mobo Asus A8V-MQ. The 
board has:
- the Socket 939 for AMD Athlon 64FX/Athlon 64.
- North Bridge: VIA K8M800  
- South Bridge: VIA VT8251
- VIA Graphics Integrated
- IDE 2 x UltraDMA 133
- 4 x Serial ATA
...

I'm using the bios version 0206. The 0210 doesn't show me the vga card, so I 
don't have graphics mode. I think that is a buggy bios.

The bios is configured with vt8251 in AHCI mode and bios boot up activated, so 
the hd is recognized in the beginning. I don't have any raid, only one hd. 
The hd is a Maxtor 6V250F0.

I'm using a debian etch but the i386 version. The only way that I can use the 
hd is using a 2.6.16 standard kernel with the modifications explained in this 
page [2]. Basically you have to use their ahci.c and sata_via.c. The 
modifications are small from the original code from Mr Jeff Garzik.

I have tried to use the 2.6.18 and 2.6.20rc6 and the result is the same. The  
kernel boots, but when arrives at the ata3, 

scsi2 : ahci
ata3: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)
ata3.00: qc timeout (cmd 0xec)
ata3.00: failed to IDENTIFY (I/O error, err_mask=0x104)
.... repeated some times ...
scsi3 : ahci
ata4: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)
scsi4 : ahci
ata4: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)
scsi5 : ahci
ata6: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)
Done.
Begin: Mounting root file system... ...
Begin: Running /scripts/local-top
ide0: I/O resource 0x3F6-0x3F6 not free.
ide0: ports already in use, skipping probe.
ide1: I/O resource 0x376-0x376 not free.
ide1: ports already in use, skipping probe.
Done.
Begin: Waiting for root file system ...

.....

but the /dev/sda doesn't exist so I cannot boot.

using the 2.6.16 with lspci -M I obtain the info attached below. Please, could 
you look on it?

Best regards,

thanks in advance,

Leo
