Doesnt support DPO or LUA

So recently I restarted my opensuse 11.1 kde 4.3.1 livecd install to be greeted by this shiny new message - sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Write cache: enabled, read cache: enabled, doesnt support DPO or FUA. Eventually if i wait long enough the live cd will boot. However it wont let me install it just hangs then exits which is probably due to this error.

bump. anyone?
