I've just tried to install for the first time Kubuntu 7.10 Final (never
tried any Ubuntu/Kubuntu dist so far) and I stuck on the same place.

I'm not able to complete instalation due unrecognized SATA HDD.
My laptop is Toshiba Tecra S3 with Intel's ICH6.

I can confirm that ata_piix mess up the hole thing. If I run
sudo rmmod -w ata_piix
sudo modprob -r ahci

and after that:

sudo modprobe ahci
sudo modprobe ata_piix

in system log (dmesg) I can see my hdd correctly detected (/dev/sdb3 in
my case).

However this is possible only if I quit X session (interrupt
installation), but after that I get a lot of ugly messages that breaks
squashfs mount.

Anyway I've never had a such problems with my previously installed
distro (Slackware 12) and I don't know what to do to workaround this
issue, because I can't complete installation of Gutsy.

If I try "text mode installation" and run "bash console" in installer
menu then I can perform from console above (modprobe) commands and
continue with installation (exit in console) - then it detects my SATA
HDD and seems installs some core apps, but after first reboot that
installer ask from me seems that installation is not complete (for
example if I issue "sudo lsmod" I get an empty list!).

Please let me know what I can do or I shoud give up?
