[Bug 625773] Re: Internal Hard Disk Errors


Malik Malhan, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been
any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an
issue? If so, could you please test for this with the latest development
release of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  Internal Hard Disk Errors

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Description:	Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS
  Release:	10.04

  I've installed ubuntu 10.04 on a external usb har drive. On boot are
  shown some errors:

  [    5.684042] ata3.00: qc timeout (cmd 0x27)
  [    5.688603] ata3.00: failed to read native max address (err_mask=0x4)
  [   15.856057] ata3.00: qc timeout (cmd 0x27)
  [   15.860599] ata3.00: failed to read native max address (err_mask=0x4)
  [   26.028105] ata3.00: qc timeout (cmd 0x27)
  [   26.032694] ata3.00: failed to read native max address (err_mask=0x4)

  See dmesg

  At ata3.00 is connected my internal sata hard disk. This problem causes a long boot time.
  I tried different option in the bios to solve this but none is working.

  On the internal hard disk is installed windows that is working without

  With ubuntu 9.04 the error was:

  ata3.00: revalidation failed.

  Ubuntu doesn't see the internal hard drive in any way
