ata1: COMRESET failed (errno=-16) while loading initial ramdisk

Description of problem:
I installed an Intel solid-state disk (ATA INTEL SSDSA2MH080G1GC with firmware version 045C8802) on my laptop (

At every boot, I receive the following messages while loading the initial ramdisk:
ata1: COMRESET failed (errno=-16) while loading initial ramdisk

This repeats 3-4 times until 60s has elapsed, after which the system boots normally.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 16 on the Intel SSD specified above
2. Attempt to boot.
Actual results:
Annoying error message and completely unnecessary 60 seconds of lag while starting up.

Expected results:
System should start booting immediately.

Additional info:
I am available to run any set of diagnostics needed to track this down.

I'm setting the severity to low because the system works after the lag, but it's very annoying.

did you try to update your BIOS as suggested there:

Too bad, I am already at the newest bios version available.
