It says that data was corrupted while transfered on the IDE bus, and the
hardware detected it. The driver was notified and has set the bus to a lower
speed (ultra mode 1 instead of ultra mode 2) and retried the xfer. This
time it worked.
This is usually a problem with the IDE cable (try an Ultra/66 cable, is
usually helps). There is also a controller which is known to have problems
(ALI) with drives > Ultra/33.
