hdaudio0 at pci0 dev 27 function 0: HD Audio Controller
hdafg0 at hdaudio0: Realtek ALC887

seems fine in the sense that I have played CD with cdplay and heard something.

re0 at pci3 dev 0 function 0: RealTek 8168/8111 PCIe Gigabit Ethernet (rev. 
rgephy0 at re0 phy 7: RTL8169S/8110S/8211 1000BASE-T media interface, rev. 5

is fine, and from the USB point of view, I have used umass.

doesn't recognise the controller

ahcisata0 at pci0 dev 31 function 2: Intel 7 Series (desktop) SATA Controller 
(AHCI) (rev. 0x04)

making sending Seagate a test code "interesting".
