I'm not sure whether this is the same error, but i'm having trouble with the SATA devices too.
It gives the following message while booting repeated time. After some minutes it gives up mounting the root filesystem:

ata1.00: qc timeout (cmd 0xec)
ata1.00: failed to IDENTIFY (I/O error, err_mask=0x4)
ata1: failed to recover some devices. retrying in 5 seconds
ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gpbs (SStatus 113 Scontrol 300)

I'm using xen 3.4.1 from source with a 2.6.26-2  dom0 kernel (from debian 5.0.2 package).

I had the same trouble in another machine (with different setup and devices) while using the dom0 kernels "distributed" together with the Xen source but I fixed the issue using the debian kernel. But in this new machine the debian kernel didn't help either.

The non virtualized system (debian 5.0.2) boots just fine.

The sata controller:
00:1f.2 SATA controller: Intel Corporation ICH9M/M-E SATA AHCI Controller (rev 03)

Any ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.
