Yes, I'm sorry I wasn't explicit about the problems and the hardware
info with related settings.  The AHCI are set on my new Gigabyte mobo.
 (I only tested the F17 beta on GX280 just to make sure that the GUI
install process should work.)  Side note, I think there's like 3 SATA
chip for that Gigabyte mobo: 1 AMD SB950 (4 SATA ports) and 2 x
Marvell 88SE9172 chips (2 internal + 2 eSATA).  I also remembering
seeing that the kernel did detect that Marvell chip.  I'll check on
the messages later when I get home to get the details.
