IMHO, it looks like the SATA controller that you are trying to passthrough 
is already used by Dom0?

The Debian documentation is not very clear [0], so I can't tell you the 
exact runes that you need to use, but I would look into using the 
xen-pciback.hide kernel command line in order to hide the devices on boot 
rather than at run time. So you will have to add:


To your kernel commnad line. Also note that [0] mentions that you might need 
to rebuild your initramfs depending on your kernel/Debian version.
