i have an 8knxp ultra64. it has two seperate sata controllers. one is a
siil 4 channel controller, the other is the adaptec embedded hostraid sata
controller. for one, i couldn't find the appropriate driver on the factory
driver cd provided by the manufacture. i had to d/l the driver from
gateway. second, i think that driver i d/led is causing problems because i
recently put in a seagate 400gb sata drive and after a fresh install of xp
w/ sp1, after a few reboots it would just stop booting. any suggestions?

Kelvin,
The Ultra64 has two SATA controllers
One is built into the Southbridge (Intel 6300ESB Ultra ATA Storage/SATA
Controller) and can be found listed under 'IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers' in the
Device Manager. In the BIOS the 'On-Chip SATA', SATA Port0 Configure as',
'SATA Port1 Configure as' and SATA RAID Function' selections control the
SATA0_SB and SATA1_SB connectors (nearest the DDR memory slots. The Intel
6300ESB driver supports these two SATA ports and updates for this
Southbridge driver can be found on the Intel website.

The second SATA controller on the board is a Silicon Image chip (Silicon
Image Sil 3114 SATALink Controller) and can be found listed under 'SCSI and
RAID Controllers' in the Device Manager. In the BIOS the 'Onboard H/W SATA'
and 'Serial ATA Function' selections control the SATA0, SATA1, SATA2, and
SATA3 connectors (near the edge of the motherboard). The Silicon Image 3114
driver supports these four ports and updates for this SATA controller can be
found on the Silicon Image website.

You mention Adaptec.....that is the SCSI 320 on-board controller. Has
nothing to do with the afore mentioned SATA controllers. In the BIOS the
'Onboard PCI66 SCSI' selection controls the two 68-pin SCSI connectors on
the edge of the motherboard. This driver update can be found on the Adaptec
website.

Hope this clears things up a bit!

Sounds like you have the BIOS settings set wrong. Please post your entire
configuration and BIOS settings. This board is a bear to make work properly
but runs sweet when you've got it right.

Good Luck
Jeff

no, the u320 controller is something completely different i know. i was
talking about the embedded adaptec HostRaid sata controller. when i enter
the bios for this controller, it says adaptec. i'll try to capture a
screenshot for you if possible and email it to you.

Wrong. After a short view into the description of this board, the
Onboard-Controller of Adaptec is an Ultra320 SCSI chip and not SATA.

like i already said...there are two adaptec controllers on this board. one
is the AIC-7902 u320 controller, the other is the embedded adaptec HostRaid
sata controller. i will post picture.

Kelvin,
Nice picture!
There is but one Adaptec Controller on this board and it controls SCSI.
Now what you have taken a picture of is Adaptec SATA HostRAID utilities
software used by Intel to configure their HostRaid option in the 6300USB
chip. Intel refers to it as softRaid.

Now do you want to fix your problem or argue more about the components on
this board.

Please keep in mind, my Ultra64 is working fine and I'm willing help you get
yours working BUT if you insist on carrying on this arguement about a second
Adaptec controller.....Stuff-It.

ok, i did as you suggested. i searched the intel website for the driver to
intel 6300esb controller hub. i was able to locate the driver for the sata
but it seems to lack the oemsetup.txt file for installing windows. any
suggestions?

Quotes from an email direct from Kelvin:

Kelvin Quote: "well, i'm not here to argue with anyone, i just don't want
people to
misinterpret what i'm stating since most people think i'm talking about the
u320 scsi controller bios. i wasn't aware you can actually use the adaptec
hostraid utilities software to configure intel hostraid. anyhow, how can i
fix this? your help is much appreciated."

Kelvin Quote: "second thing is, i've been using the adaptec embedded
hostraid sata driver
from gateway. it was working for a 200gb western digital sata drive, but
now since i swapped it w/ the seagate 400gb sata drive, it seems to crash
after i install windows on it."


1. Please post your entire configuration and BIOS settings.
2. What exactly are you trying to do? You mention replacing a 200G SATA
drive with a 400G SATA drive. Did you have a RAID Array, of which this 200G
SATA drive was one hard drive within how many others? Hard drives within
this Array should be of the same size and preferred from the same
manufacture and even manufactured lot (same age - date of manufacture).
3. Don't email me direct - I will not answer. Post your responses to the
newsgroup so that others may interact and benefit.

The driver that should be used is located on the motherboard CD:
Chipset/HRaid/Setup This will load the Hance Rapids Raid on your computer.
This means you should load XP on a single SATA hard drive first (disable the
SATA RAID Function in the BIOS). The other hard drive should also be
connected so that XP will recognize it as well as the hard drive with XP.
Once XP has been installed, then install the HostRaid driver from the
motherboard CD. Now, return to your BIOS and enable the 'SATA RAID
Function', when XP comes up, the new driver will be requested, since you
earlier installed it, XP should find the driver and ask for a reboot. Upon
reboot, enter the Host Raid Configuration Utility (control S) and configure
your hard drives within the array.

I think I have that right. I don't use this HostRaid myself (the Silicon
Image Raid is much better) but if I have steered you wrong I'm sure someone
else will correct me.

Please provide answers to above questions and post.

Jeff
