Quoting Rich Demanowski <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>:

I'm trying to add another hard drive into my system, a 250GB Western Digital 7200RPM SATA drive, and when I have it plugged into the motherboard the system hangs when it gets to:
   Timecounter "TSC" frequency 1803775604 Hz quality 800
   Timecounters tick every 1.000 msec
   acd0: CDRW <LITE-ON COMBO SOHC-4836K/SPJ2> at ata1-master UDMA33
   ad4: 114473MB <Seagate ST3120213AS 3.AHH> at ata2-master SATA150

I had a similar problem using a new SATA-II drive with my SATA150 controller. Once I closed the jumper to force the drive down to SATA150 operation the problem went away. This isn't necessary on most drive/controller combinations (the fallback is supposed to happen automatically), but it was for me and sounds like it may be for you. I had to do a bit of searching around to confirm the jumper function since it's more or less undocumented for my drive (a Seagate).

Good luck,
