After spending an entertaining morning installing ubuntu on my Toshiba netbook, I hit a brick wall when it utterly failed to boot.

Some searching found me this suggestion, which actually seems to work:
hi, try this:
on startup press F2
on bios > avanced > SATA controller Mode change AHCI to Compatibility

and that's it!
Question for folks with more hardware fu than I have: Do I care that I've turned off AHCI mode on a netbook? My choices are AHCI or Compatibility; in Compatibility mode ubuntu boots up ok.

Thanks for any thoughts.

I'm running ubuntu 11.04, 32-bit.
