Default CF CARD 4GB, ATA DISK drive DMA timeout error

Hello,

I have a fanless board by Acrosser with Geode GX CPU. The board has a CF
slot that is seen as primary/secondary HDD in Bios. I've jumpered to
primary as I don't have a HDD attached. The card is a CF card (hda: ELITE
PRO CF CARD 4GB, ATA DISK drive).
Now the problem is that the system can not boot from this card. Can someone
tell me how to debug, please.
I'm thinking that may be the bios is not supporting such a big CF card,
because it looks like it is trying to find a boot device and end ups with
BOOT DISK FAIL message.

The other think is that when I boot from USB or other drive I have this
following error couple of times after that the CF card is mounted:

Uniform Multi-Platform E-IDE driver
cs5535 0000:00:0f.2: IDE controller (0x100b:0x002d rev 0x00)
cs5535 0000:00:0f.2: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later
* * ide0: BM-DMA at 0xff00-0xff07
Probing IDE interface ide0...

hda: dma timeout error: status=0x58 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest }
ide: failed opcode was: unknown
hda: DMA disabled
ide0: reset: success
*hda1 hda2 hda3

There was an option to pass CHS on the command line at boot time, but I'm
not quite sure what the root cause is. I'm using kernel 2.6.26.2 or
2.6.27.6, but same behaviour with both except that with 2.6.27 I can not
boot some times (it hangs after reading the intrd file).

Thank you in advance

regards
