In ATADisks.Mod: 9    dma transfer error

Perhaps there is some bus master issue on this machine.  Try disabling 
bus mastering (DMA) in the driver by setting config string ATABM="0".

Sending the output of System.OpenKernelLog might help diagnose the problem.

BIOS settings shouldn't really make a difference to this issue.
