NCQ on itself shouldn't matter.
What is the problem exactly? Maybe you can post the dmesg?
Or did the iso fail to boot at all?
The only problem i had with SATA was that the boot0 couldn't
find the SATA drives so i had to use an ATA drive for the loader
but that was with another controller, not ICH7.
