The new disk driver (libata) wraps in SATA, and IDE drives. Since it is now the default in F7, and since it is not as mature as the old IDE drivers, it sometimes fails to pick them up.

More likely as the machine is pre-production it contains unknown IDE
device types. The old kernels (FC6 and earlier) included a generic
ISA style fallback driver which FC7 does not and would thus drive unknown
chipsets. Thats purely a compile time choice of the kernel builder.

The windows ppl here confirmed that they had to update the drivers to get it to work. Aparently the HD controller is brand new.
