# Do I require pata_atiixp or ata_generic kernel modules on a SATA just system?

I do not have any kind of IDE drives and also my only SATA disk drive is running in AHCI setting, yet my initrd photo lots the pata_atiixp component. Is it secure to disable this component? And also what concerning the ata_generic one?

To address the 2nd one - you can make use of

\$ lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
...


On your running systems to see, if ata_generic is filled and also if it is, which components depend on it (consider the made use of by column.
