Ubuntu Installation bootstrap error

I keep getting a bootstrap error in the installation with error 1

I've reburned the cd twice and keep getting this.

The SATA drive is on an SATA pci card so that may be the issue. I'm in the process of backing everything up on my spare drive and installing to the m/b sata drive but just wondered if anyone else had this error on a drive connected by an sata controller card.

    Sata controllers usually need special drivers which aren't built into the linux kernel yet. Sometimes you will even have problems with mainboard sata controllers. Usually you can set them to run in an IDE compatible mode and then they should work. Maybe you need to apply a driver floppy during the installation.

    Last night I swapped the drive back to the m/b and ran the installation, everything works fine now
