Hello,

I recommend that you rmmod the driver for mdio-gpio, since it somewhat seems that it is being loaded by your kernel, and the mdio-gpio module is trying to load by itself. Try that and let us know how it goes, and if it helps.

Cheers,

Josh

I would say that you beat me to it, but I recall saying what command in my previous post.... Pays to re-read sometimes

rmmod is not sufficient, the best is to remove it from from /etc/modprobe.d may be from your local.boot

I get the same error with 3.0.4

But when I type
Code:
sudo rmmod mdio-gpio
it says
Code:
ERROR: Module mdio_gpio does not exist in /proc/modules
Then I looked for mdio-gpio in the directory /etc/modprobe.d and I don't see such a thing. Any suggestion please?

I have met the same question before when I entered Ubuntu 2.6.36.1, the method I solved the problem is reconfig the kernel
PHP Code:
make menuconfig 
and I added the support for Device Drivers->Serial ATA and Parallel ATA drivers-> AHCI SATA support&Platform AHCI SATA support
then recompiled the kernel, reboot, everything became OK.
I hope this can help.
