Comment (by Luposian):

 On my Acer Aspire X1200, it no longer boots.  It sits at the "Boot from
 AHCI CD-ROM..." prompt forever, before eventually defaulting to Windows
 Vista.  The CD drive light blinks incessantly, like it's trying to read
 something, but never does.

 On my Acer Aspire 5560 laptop, however, it gets to the Haiku boot screen,
 and pauses on the 3rd icon for a few seconds before going to the 4th icon
 (disk w/ leaf) and then sits there forever.  No crash/panic noticed.

 On the X1200, it does nothing... on my 5560 laptop it gets to the 4th icon
 and stops.  I don't understand why the two systems behave so differently
 during bootup.  They both crashed similarly, with the previous version.
 But now one won't boot at all and the other one does, partially.  Hmm...

 My assumption is AHCI is AHCI... isn't it?  Or are there different
 versions/implementations of AHCI?  If that were the case, it could make
 trying to track down this bug, as difficult as trying to find a needle in
 a haystack!
