Its difficult since the box won't boot (and
doesn't save the dmesg) with an SATA in the
system. Do you have any suggestions as to how to
get the messages?
When the DragonFly splash screen comes up, go to the console (option 6 I 
think). Then set the following parameter

set console=comconsole
boot -v
This should spew a verbose dmesg to the serial port at 9600 baud. You 
can capture this with minicom or even a Windows client.
