My Laptop (HP TX2100) has problems loading a lot of the features on UBCD. None of the bootdisks work and on next to all of them, it hangs after displaying this message:

The only hint i found was this tread
, which states that the problem is related to the SATA drives, and advices to emulate IDE on the SATA channels, which my BIOS does not support (and no, there's no update )-: ).
Since the problem appears to affect all bootdisks loaded by MemDisk, i can only assume it is MemDisk having trouble with the SATA drives. Is there a work-around for this?
I did get PING
working in UBCD using this code:
MENU LABEL Ping
root=/dev/ram0 rw noapic nolapic lba
Since it was the only mounted disk i've seen working on my computer so far, i tried to use these settings on the bootdisks as well, but with no succes, and quite frankly i had no idea what i was doing. /-:
(I am running UBCD from a usb stick)
