Perhaps it has something to do with the order in which the modules are
being loaded? I found that if I had a bunch of USB devices attached to
the computer at startup, they could be recognized in a haphazard
order--which is not so useful for storage devices. Maybe you have
something similar going on.
Since you're using IDE drives *and* SATA drives, assuming that you're
trying to boot from the IDE drive, you could try building a custom
kernel that has the IDE driver built-in but the SATA driver as a
module. That way, the IDE drive is guaranteed to be initialized first.
