I have a system which is hanging during boot at the line "Booting the
kernel" when I have a drive connected to either port of the PCI-Express
SATA card I recently installed (chipset ASM1061).  When a drive is not
connected to the card, the system boots normally, and connecting the
drive to the card after booting leads to no errors or other problems.  I
am running the latest version of linux and linux-headers in the core

It is worth noting that I also have an identical SATA card in the same
system with two drives identical to the one in question connected to it.
This setup has operated smoothly for about six months.
