Description Barry Rountree 2005-03-30 20:45:14 UTC
After a successful boot, I tried using mkreiserfs on my SATA drives.  Boom.
I recalled that in trying to get Debian to work, I had fiddled with several 
BIOS settings.  I went back, changed one, and things are now working fine.

Bad bios setting:
Integrated Peripherals->South OnChip PCI Device->Onboard Chip SATA
	RAID Controller

Use "IDE Controller" here instead.

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set BIOS->Integrated Peripherals->South OnChip PCI Device->Onboard Chip SATA = RAID Controller
2.Boot with Athlon 2005.0 universal cd.
3.Use fdisk to create a 20GB linux partition on /dev/sda and a 20GB partition on /dev/sdb
4.Run "mkreiserfs /dev/sda1"

Actual Results:  
livecd root # mkreiserfs /dev/sda1 
hda: DMA timeout retry 
hda: timeout waiting for DMA 
hda: status timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy } 
ide: failed opcode was: unknown 
hda: drive not ready for command 
hda: ATAPI reset complete

You should try to update your bios. Report back if that doesn't help...
