I'd appreciate that, and i really hope it works. from reading this forum, you are having the exact same errors with yours, and you ask the same questions i did, and got the same asnwers that didnt work. ANd this worked for me. i really hope it gets yours up and running. Tell me if it does/doesnt though, you may have forgot a step that isnt included in the handbook. I think theres at least one for SATA drives that isnt mention, im triyng to think of it now i cant remember, ill get back to you after you reinstall.

OMG!!! It worked... Thanks a million!!
Geez... What I would like to know now is what "doscsi" does besides loading extra modules.

Once again, thanks for the help!

hehe glad that helped :) did you redo everything or just the grub file?
... this should probably be made a sticky, TONS of people have this problem with SATA drives and there not to much authentic documentation on it. So many people do so many things and all it is is your very ffirst step, you do not want to get on the wrong path before you have even started:wink:

I've installed gentoo some times now, on different machines,
I'm typing this post from a iBook running Gentoo... ;)

But like I said before, I would like to know what "doscsi" really does.
I thought that just loading the SATA modules was enough.
Oh and re-did everything, except deleting partitions.

I've been stuck by the SATA hard disk for two days and tried your suggestions and it worked! Thank you c0vert!
I didn't change my grub.conf but just rebuild my kernel (I think I didn't alter my settings but I'm not sure).
