so threre is not so much newer kernel available in standard repo. of course you can try this.
i searched ML110G5 manual from HP, and found some BIOS-settings that could have some effect on this situation.
and also in kernel-devel-mailinglist was couple mentios about ICHR-SATA-controller, which this machine has.
these tryouts may have same effect than you changing to different colour socks, but maybe worth to check anyway.
in BIOS there should be option like this under Advanced / Advanced Chipset Control:
Serial ATA -> this should be enabled
SATA Controller Mode Option -> for this manual does not list options, so you have to try.
SATA RAID Enabled -> this should be disabled.
in kernel-devel-mailinglist they had noticed that there is harddisk performance differences between SATA-ports on ICH7R depending from cheduler kernel is using. go figure...
so you could check that too.
and i am curious about hdparm-output?
