Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-image-generic

Hello, I can't give you infos that are following as the kernel doesn't
start the system, and I fall down very fastly in a busybox.

I can just see that after booting on the live-cd, choosing "start Ubuntu
without installing..." or another option which needs a kernel loading,
it tries 3 times to find the Sata controller (one time at 3Gb/s, one
time at 1,5Gb/s each cycle) and finally doesn't reach it.

here is my specs :

I've an Imedia 8783, with a athlon 64 x2 4400+, a Canberra motherboard
