Q: What can I do to fix “WARNING - READ_DMA” errors that show up in the log?
Hardware issue

  • Check cables (IDE, SATA, PATA) and connectors.
  • Check disks. Review S.M.A.R.T. reports for errors or warnings and run disk manufacturers' diagnostic software to make sure the disk is not damaged.
  • Check disk controllers. Make sure all MotherBoard BIOS settings are correct if you are using an onboard controller. If you are using an add-on controller, make sure it is configured correctly. If it is a SIL chip-set based controller, please read –dead link {Controller with Silicon Image Chips}.
