[vox-tech] hard drive light stays on? 4k sectors WDS10EADS



I put together an MSI Wind box at the beginning of the year with a Western
Digital 1TB drive that uses 4kb sectors (WD10EADS). It seems that the SATA
link fails to respond at startup (see below) and the drive light stays on
after bootup.  Otherwise, things seem to work fine. I am not sure if the
drive got mapped or formatted (however you say it) with 4kb sectors. It
looks like the kernel messages is reporting 512-byte sectors. Any advice?

I searched Google and I couldn't seem to fine a straight answer, except
for that some were not too happy with this drive.  How is I tell if I
installed correctly for this drive? I am using Debian lenny.
