[Bug 1467184] Re: Sata failure with main board gigabyte ga-g41mt-s2pt


I really wanted the low latency kernel for this build, but testing
requirements come first.

  Sata failure with main board gigabyte ga-g41mt-s2pt

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  At first I thought it was a hard dive failure .. but sent it back and
  another drive did the same thing. Then, put the drive on a different
  machine and it booted/worked repeatedly with no problems.   Got a 3rd
  drive from a different manufacturer, and it did the same thing.
  Running this particular main board, I can install ubuntu studio on a
  drive.  Then, after about 3 or 4 days running, it refuses to access
  the drive. The O.S. doesn't crash, mouse moves etc.  but I have to
  bring it down because it won't start an app, and often (but not
  always) kills the menu window while selecting a program.. and butts
  out of anything that seems likely to be requesting the drive.  ...

   again ... take the same drive, connect to another machine and its
  dreamy.  (this assertion needs more testing, so I am running another
  machine with such a drive long term at this point to double check
  that)  Then, when I bring it back up, the O.S. won't boot.  I can
  often get it back up by plugging the drive into a different sata slot
  or in one case, switching off the S.M.A.R.T. drive manager, but after
  a few days drive access fails again.  The machine hangs at the dpmi
  data screen and eventually asks for a bootable drive.   ...( but there
  is a drive that works on other machines.) .. googling finds nothing
  except the main board has a reputation for not booting from flash
  drives. Not the same deal. Because of that .. I'm thinking maybe it
  has something to do with the real time kernel because that's
  different, and rare enough that others may not have encountered the
  problem yet.  No promises on that being true.   no special gpu, and
  all of the hardware seems to work fine.  About the only thing I can
  think of to try at this point is a different OS on this same machine
  ... pain in the behind, but maybe necessary to help track down the
