Comment 76 for bug 181561

I'm assuming the 8.04 Live CD Beta didn't have this fix and the daily build CDs did because with booting from the latter the PATA hard drive is now longer available, i.e. this fix is a regression for some users.

    PATA drive available: Linux version 2.6.24-12-generic (buildd@yellow) (gcc version 4.2.3 (Ubuntu 4.2.3-2ubuntu4)) #1 SMP Wed Mar 12 22:31:43 UTC 2008 (Ubuntu 2.6.24-12.22-generic)
    PATA drive missing: Linux version 2.6.24-16-generic (buildd@yellow) (gcc version 4.2.3 (Ubuntu 4.2.3-2ubuntu7)) #1 SMP Thu Apr 10 12:47:45 UTC 2008 (Ubuntu 2.6.24-16.30-generic)

Some interesting lines from the latter's dmesg.
