Maybe your hardware needs a different kernel module, than those which
are already loaded. You can add the kernel module to the script
class/20hwdetect.source. This is some detail of this script.

kernelmodules="rtc floppy usbkbd ide-disk ide-cd"
case $(uname -r) in
    2.4*) kernelmodules="$kernelmodules keybdev mousedev hid ide-detect isa-pnp" ;;
    2.6*) kernelmodules="$kernelmodules ehci-hcd ohci-hcd uhci-hcd usbhid usbmouse ide-generic mptspi ata_piix" ;;
