Hey Kair

I have compiled the Xen 3.2 Unstable version.
I am getting the dom0 booting message as:

ata1: SATA link up 3.0 Gbps (SStatus 123 SControl 300)
ata1.00: qc timeout (cmd 0xec)
ata1.00: failed to IDENTIFY (I/O error, err_mask=0x104)

ata1: port is slow to respond, please be patient (Status 0x80)
ata1: port failed to respond (30 secs, Status 0x80)
ata1: COMRESET failed (device not ready)
ata1: hardreset failed, retrying in 5 secs

After retrying for 2-3 time, again the control drops to initramfs.

This means again the SATA controller is not able to identify the partition.

As i have observed that in the Linux Kernel same problem has rectified
over the  later version of kernel. i.e in .22 and .23

what do you suggest?
