We've moved to GRUB 2 as a development platform. Please can you check if this bug still applies there, and if it does, reopen it?

Well, I am not sure how much this will help, but could you simply send the IRQ lines of your SATA board and of your PS2 mouse when attached ? I think of a possible bug in the driver (as seen by grub so it might just be a BIOS interacting with GRUB problem).

I'm getting the exact same problem. VERY strange (and inconvenient).

Hi, I have installed a new sata controller on my server, after that grub doesnt boot and it stop at stage 1.5
I tryed both version 0.97 and 0.95 but it doesnt work.
The only method to boot it is connect a ps2 mouse to the server.
If the mouse is inserted the server boot without problems.
I think it's very strange.

The following is the sata controller I have installed:
0000:00:0c.0 RAID bus controller: Silicon Image, Inc. (formerly CMD Technology Inc) SiI 3512 [SATALink/SATARaid] Serial ATA Controller (rev 01)
