Slackware 10 + SATA Promise + mkinitrd

Hi everybody,

I have a problem with a sata hard disk. I use slackware 10 / Kernel 2.4.26 and the promise driver so I have in my fstab /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, ... Now I want to use the Kernel 2.6. I make the initrd with mkinitrd : mkinitrd -c -k 2.6.7 -m scsi_mod:libata:sata_promise -f ext3 -r /dev/sda7 -o initrd-2.6.7.img and when I boot I have these messages :

# Modules loaded successfully ...
ata1: SATA max UDMA/133
ata2: SATA max UDMA/133
ata1: no device found
scsi0: sata_promise
ata2: dev 0 ATA, max UDMA/133, ...
ata2: dev 0 configured for UDMA/133
scsi1: sata_promise
TYPE: Direct-Access
mount: Mounting /dev/sda7 on /mnt failed: No such device or address
mount: Mounting /dev/sda7 on /mnt failed: Invalid argument
mount: Mounting /dev/sda7 on /mnt failed: Invalid argument
/boot/initrd.gz : exiting
pivot_root : Device or ressource busy

... and then I have a prompt and the system is not going to boot !

Thanks for your help.
