Is this boot problem related to SATA?

I get the following messages when I boot from 0.3.0 REL install CD:

Failed to read the super block

Failed to read the boot sector

Unable to locate boot partition

Faild to open boot drive

Then BIOS let me boot from the next device in the boot device list.

I get similar messages booting from 0.3.0 REL Live CD.

Is the problem related to my SATA drive?
Would it help if I connect the drive to the IDE interface using a converter?

SATA is not completely implemented with ROS .... (yeah ..tahts why alpha development stage ;) /..its issing a lot of stuff..)
U can try changing the "Legacy device" setting in the BIOS first... hopefully that'll help...
U can also try ROS under a VM in QEMU+kqemu or VMware and such ..

I have checked a previous thread talking about SATA("SATA support - plans?" Maybe steveh and you mean the same thing? Unfortunately It seems there is no such setting in my BIOS. I am considering QEMU now.

Thanks for your quick response :)
