snd-hda-intel get blacklisted somehow. or it is not listed in the
modprobe conf to load. An idea just thinking yo could remove the kernel
reinstall it with only the cards you want enabled. You could look into
the initrd for startup modules also with cpio. Back it up first though.
Also you should make sure the it has the right PCI Identfier for the
*.ko . If My other questions are, is your init subsystem in working
order; like it should work and look for extra modules to load in
sysconfig? All fails create an insmod *.ko script for startup.
