This is not very specific; most VIA chipsets used to have model
numbers beginning with 'VT'.
What does the command 'lspci -nn' show?

Various old-style IDE drivers have been removed, but in all cases
there are replacement drivers using libata.
The installer uses the same kernel as the installed system (well,
sometimes the installed version will have a few more bug fixes) so
if the installer worked then we clearly do have a suitable driver.
We get into the habit of living before acquiring the habit of thinking.
