Silicon Image is fakeRAID and generally offers extremely poor quality. You may want to consider flashing the controller to be a normal non-RAID SATA controller, and use Windows software RAID (striping) to make a RAID0 with proper performance.
Called pny they are no help. Not sure if something happen to my disk set or other issues.
The drivers do not look correct from Silicon Image website. PNY could not tell what drivers were shipped with the unit.
I do not know much about cards or raids, the PNY PCI Express SATA II 2 CH raid is not a ture raid?
According to Silicon Image website the 184.108.40.206 driver is not right, not sure if wins updated the driver.
>>Use this driver with Windows 7 and the latest BASE BIOS to access non-RAID hard disk drives, CD-ROMs, CDRWs, DVD-ROMs, and DVD-RWs. Latest SiI3132 BIOS::7.7.02; Please see the latest SiI3132 documents. Note: This driver does NOT support Windows Vista 64-bit.
If I flash the controller and make it single.
Here's my setup, I am running a Abit IP 35 pro, it has I beleive 6 sata that can be raid setup. I believe it is only a single channel raid?
What would I do for a controller? Plug two drives into the PNY pci express after converting it to non-RAID controller. Pull out PCI controller and use MB controller. not sure I understand what you said.
