ATA Hardware Supported by NetBSD

Machine-independent ATA drivers

The following devices (driver name in parentheses) are supported by machine-independent ATA drivers. If you do not see your device listed here, check your platform's page; there may not yet be a machine-independent driver for your device.

Alternatively, it may be the case that your device is compatible with one listed here, or your device may not be listed due to an oversight. If you are unsure, please boot a -current GENERIC kernel or send mail to .

ATA (as well as S-ATA) devices are attached to controllers found on a wide variety of busses. To see if your particular controller is supported, please check the page for the bus it is attached to.

Note that ATAPI devices are listed separately. Click here for a list of supported ATAPI devices.

Please note that these pages reflect the state of NetBSD-current. To check the supported hardware list for a specific release of NetBSD, check that release's installation notes.
