I'd say that's your problem there :)
Add a --preload and load the applicable module based on how your bios is set up.
If it can do AHCI, and I think it can, use that.
Not sure how mkinitrd works from a livecd when your modprobe.conf is on the "rescued"
system. Maybe running from a chroot might overcome any ambiguity, but you most likely
don't have an appropriate modprobe.conf on the dead system that is even right.
--preload will force it in where it needs to be. You need some combination of ahci, ata_piix
and libata. Someone the wiser chime in. Those are what are applicable to this mobo under
any possible config, it's an ICH7 board.
