This looks to me like the interrupt routing is not set up properly. VIA
chipsets are very peculiar about the way they like their interrupts
routed. Which INT line to which PIRQ, then which PIRQ to which interrupt
on the PIC, and this final result must be reflected by the interrupt
tables. Is it just the SATA interrupt that's dead, or are keyboard and
friends also unresponsive?
