Re: ATA Channel 0 problem
Some mfgrs have choosen a option inside the BIOS to be able for the user to
set SATA to emulate a PATA drive.
If this was the case at first and you have updated some settings it might be
onverted back to standard SATA and no longer emulate the PATA drive.
Give it a try in the BIOS to see if this is changed. If PATA emulation is
on you don't need sata drivers, if you installed those it's logical no
longer working because it doesn't know what driver to use.
