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.
