amd64 2.4 livecd won't mount root at boot

I've got an x64 machine with an ich9 sata disk controller.  With the
i386 live dvd, I can boot the live system all the way and perform an
installation.  With x64, it will boot no further than trying to mount
the rootfs from the live cd and will fail and drop me to the
mountroot> prompt.  I then tried to manually mount each of the
available devices and got nothing but error code 22.  I've attached
the boot logs in order to help debug.  I did jump on IRC and talk to a
few people but it boiled down to the suggestion to send a report to
this address.  Thanks!
