mounting sata failed

hardware platfrom: MPC8347+Sil3114 four channels SATA controller with Hitachi HDS72161 SATA disk connected on first channel
Linux version: 2.6.19

using fdisk -t can see get disk information, but can't mount

# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 3824 30716248+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 3825 7648 30716280 83 Linux

# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
mount: mounting /dev/sda1 on /mnt/sda1 failed
# mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/sda2
mount: mounting /dev/sda2 on /mnt/sda2 failed

What's the possible problem? Thanks.

What about this partition table? Since when can't you mount it?

partition table should be OK. If using 2.4 kernel, disk can be identified and can be mount at /dev/hda1 and /dev/hda2. Two partitions exist on disk and both of them are ext3. I tried to run mkfs on /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2 within 2.6.19 kerenl, also failed. The nodes for sda1 and sda2 exist at /dev/ folder with major is 8.

Any suggestions? Thanks.
