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.
