Unfortunately, both of these photos only show that MD (block major 9)
device could not be found for root.

For either ATA or IDE, we would need to see full dmesg somehow --
perhaps capturing serial console output? (Documentation/serial-console.txt)

I bet libata fails because CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SD is not enabled. Probably
want to enable CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SR too, for libata CD-ROM support. I
would be interested to see your failing ATA config, with IDE disabled.
