ata1: Softreset failed (Device not ready)

Hi I just started using Fedora 10 as my main OS and I love it! Just one thing, before Fedora boots, the message of "ata1: Softreset failed (Device not ready)" and then Fedora 10 boots, just want to know how to make this message disappear or fix it.

Any help?

I get the same thing:
Code:
ata1: softreset failed (device not ready)
ata1: failed due to HW bug, retry pmp=0
ata3: softreset failed (device not ready)
ata3: failed due to HW bug, retry pmp=0
Luckily, this problem doesn't seem to affect performance. I've added myself to the bugzilla bug report.

I see the message, too. In my case I am using all SATA drives. That is, there is no PATA (IDE) drives connected.

Is this part of the issue?

I am using gentoo & Fedora, at first both of 2 got errors. like

Quote:
dmesg |grep soft
ata3: softreset failed (device not ready)
ata4: softreset failed (device not ready)
ata2: softreset failed (device not ready)
ata1: softreset failed (device not ready)
because i compile kernel by myself under gentoo, so the problem has been found out.
this is about errors happened on AMD motherboard SB600/SB700.
all you need to is that, re-compile your kernel with CONFIG_SATA_PMP=n (default is CONFIG_SATA_PMP=y)
i had done this for gentoo 4 months ago
but i still leave error on my fedora due to i don't use Fedora very often...i assume the same solution to fix it for fedora.
hope this information could help someone to sort it out.
