I have the same problems, but I have two machines, both running 7.10, the first is AMD the other is Intel.

The problem for me seems to be the hard-drive itself. I have three SAMSUNG HD161HJ disks and one Maxtor.
No UDMA mode is enabled for any of the samsung disks, independently of which machine it is connected to.
The AMD has a VIA-SATA RAID controller, the Intel board has a controller from Intel.

The Maxtor disk has UDMA 5 enabled.

Conclusion: The differences on the disks have impact.

I also have a question: can it be that the samsung disks themselves do not support any UDMA/DMA mode?
