The SATA controller is Intel 82801FR SATA AHCI Controller
I'm not sure if support for AHCI controller made its way into the libata yet.
Things to try:
Do you have RAID options enabled in BIOS. If yes, disable them and retry installation. AHCI doesn't really have RAID anyhow, it's just a fake.
If AHCI is not yet supported by libata, try setting it to emulate old (parallel) IDE controller in BIOS. This always works.
