This:
Code:
00:1f.1 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82801BA IDE U100 Controller (rev 04)
leads me to believe that you should have CONFIG_ATA_PIIX enabled in your kernel (Device Drivers -> Serial ATA and Parallel ATA drivers -> ATA SFF support -> ATA BMDMA support -> Intel ESB, ICH, PIIX3, PIIX4 PATA/SATA support).

If that doesn't work, try and enable some of the other SATA/PATA drivers that were enabled in the working kernel.

Please post or append to your next post the full output of "lspci -k".

This will certainly help finding out what is missing in your kernel's configuration.

And post output of "uname -a" as well.

Or reverse? I can't understand how your hard disk can be managed with:
Code:
# CONFIG_IDE is not set

If you have a SATA HDD, put it in AHCI mode and it should work.

If you have an old IDE HDD do as the above say and enable the appropriate IDE driver and support.

In lspci-k.txt I see:
Code:
00:1f.1 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82801BA IDE U100 Controller (rev 04)
	Subsystem: Gateway 2000 Device 0063
	Kernel driver in use: ata_piix
If I do a "make xconfig" and search (Ctrl+F) for ata_piix I find this:
Code:
Intel ESB, ICH, PIIX3, PIIX4 PATA/SATA support
And the help text shows:
Code:
Intel ESB, ICH, PIIX3, PIIX4 PATA/SATA support (ATA_PIIX)

CONFIG_ATA_PIIX:

This option enables support for ICH5/6/7/8 Serial ATA
and support for PATA on the Intel ESB/ICH/PIIX3/PIIX4 series
host controllers.

If unsure, say N.

Symbol: ATA_PIIX [=y]
Type : tristate
Prompt: Intel ESB, ICH, PIIX3, PIIX4 PATA/SATA support
Defined at drivers/ata/Kconfig:170
Depends on: ATA [=y] && ATA_SFF [=y] && ATA_BMDMA [=y] && PCI [=y]
Location:
-> Device Drivers
-> Serial ATA and Parallel ATA drivers (ATA [=y])
-> ATA SFF support (ATA_SFF [=y])
-> ATA BMDMA support (ATA_BMDMA [=y])
But in config.txt I see:
Code:
# CONFIG_ATA_PIIX is not set
So you miss the support for SATA, hence probably for your hard disk.

PS You didn't answer my questions 3,4 and 5 in post #12

To answer your questions:
1) I downloaded the kernel from kernel.org
2) I just wanted the newest kernel
3) the changes I made were mostly just for netfilter options

I made the changes in the .config file that has been suggested. I never uploaded the newest kernel .config I've tried. I'm attaching that now.

Have you tried changing the SATA controller mode to AHCI in the BIOS ?

Try and disable CONFIG_IDE:
Code:
< > ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support (DEPRECATED)  --->
One of the drivers in there may be conflicting with the ata_piix driver.

when I run
Code:
dmesg
I get some stuff about scsi drivers. I opened my case and it says on the motherboard ide1 and ide2 (for harddrive and cdrom, respectively). I'm attaching the output from dmesg.

I do not understand.

Are you still having trouble or are you just curious on why scsi pops up in your dmesg?

Dear doughyi8u, given yours answers 2) and 3) in your post #22, I won't investigate further.

My best advise would be that you first follow very carefully this how-to, making sure you understand the purpose and effect of each and every command before you type it.

I would be tempted to even go further and advise you, for this first attempt to follow the how-to, not to customize anything in the new kernel, in other words do not even run "make xconfig" or "make menuconfig" after "make oldconfig" *but* do create an initrd.

Only when you will have done that successfully once you could try to configure your kernel further.

But even then be very careful that:
(1) there be a real rationale for any change you make
(2) you read and understand fully the help text corresponding to any change you make
(3) you be absolutely sure that that change can't have odd consequences

For that, at the very least you should type "lsmod" and "lspci -k" before proceeding and make sure you won't remove any driver or module listed in the output of one of theses commands.
