What's the system? Is it IDE? SCSI? SATA?

Just a two minute google produced this idea

In the BIOS configuration, change from AHCI to compatibility mode.

Then I suggest you go hunting yourself. It does seem to need a r5ecent kernel. I don't know kernel versions on the distros you tried. Sometimes a look in the changelog of the kernel tells you what version you need.
