    You did not really put much effort in to the question. No links no bugs. I don't need IDE drivers I have a raid card.

    I was waiting for your replies. Here in EE the process of getting an answer is pretty interactive.

    About the bugs, your motherboard has some bugs ( you won't even be able to install from the cd. It's enough for me to back off on another distro
