I have a SATA HDD device that sits behind a SATA-IDE bridge and a custom ASIC. The device is able to be detected during system POST, and also detected by Knoppix 3.6 Live CD as /dev/hdc. However Mandriva doesn't detect it at all, neither does Windows.
Does anyone know why Knoppix 3.6 detects it but not other Linux versions? Also why is it /dev/hdc instead of /dev/sda or sdb?
