Just to understand the problem better:

Exposing SATA drives as IDE drives to the OS appears to be a  
temporary solution until all SATA driver programmers ( Hello  
Intel :-) ) have catched up and made an AHCI driver available. Ubuntu  
runs in AHCI mode just fine, even on a board which lacks a proper  
driver for Windows XP. AHCI is noticeable faster than IDE.

What stops you from switching to AHCI?
