So I have 3.7 openbsd.  I went to my friendly computer store and ordered an adverstised amd64 package.  Hmm, I am back home now and looking closely at the specs and I see a SATA hard drive.  I am not sure that OpenBSD supports SATA well.  Have I carelessly asked for trouble?

    It depends on the chipset. You can find a full list of supported hardware for AMD64 platform at:

    There you will see the following:

    NVIDIA nForce/nForce2/nForce3*/nForce3-250* (SATA controllers are not supported)
