I bought an HP notebook (nx6320 or nc6320 from memory) a few weeks ago
which contained a SATA drive. It caused problems until I disabled
"Native SATA mode" in BIOS as directed by HP. Then there's a driver
which I've yet to install, which should enable MS Windows to see the
drive with this mode re-enabled.
Thankfully I had no such trouble booting the machine using a Gentoo
bootdisk for many enjoyable seconds of filesystem manipulation.
