    I followed the advice to not use the deprecated old PATA subsystem
            ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support (DEPRECATED)  --->
    and use the ATA subsystem instead.
            Serial ATA and Parallel ATA drivers  --->
    Unfortunately I needed several tries to find out, that I needed the SFF
    menu I had not selected before because I had never heard that term
    before. I think it would have helped me, to have PATA or legacy IDE in
    that item’s name.
