I once got the same on a Dell Opteron with a Maxtor harddisk. I don't 
know why this happends with the live cd but maybe the drive gets mounted 
during booting from the CD.

Anyway the solution was to disable UDMA6 for this Maxtor harddrive using 

Some (or all) Maxtor drives can't handle UDMA6 correctly, UDMA5 works 
very well.
