Can you confirm that only the p50x0sata.device is bootable?
What do you mean by "bootable"? Loading all the Kickstart modules from disk is done by U-Boot and no OS4 SATA driver is involved.

Once OS4 is running, all the SATA drivers for on-board and PCI cards will be usable.

Maybe what DaveyW meant was that you can only boot from the built-in (on-board) SATA. That is correct. U-Boot does not support any PCI devices and cannot read any PCI disks.

Linux is the same: U-Boot has to read the boot disk to boot the system, and since U-Boot can not read any PCI devices, it can't boot Linux (or anything else) from PCI.

Yes, that's what I was referring to.

I boot linux from a ASmedia PCIx1 controller in my X5000

Uboot and Linux kernel are both on my SDcard.
