Re: Corrupt data - RAID sata_sil 3114 chip

Therefore, I think it's safe to say that the Syba SD-SATA-4P and the
corresponding Silicon Image 3114 chipset have a fairly narrow appeal:
they work in 32-bit 5V PCI slots only, on consumer systems only, which
are running only the following operating systems that I own: none.
I hope this helps someone... I just wish I knew of an inexpensive (under
$50) and reliable PCI-to-SATA adapter so I could put some of my hard
drives to use in these servers!
I have that chip. It is soldered to my motherboard, an ASUS AMD64
socket 939 machine. I consider it "old". I expect you are running up
against obsolescence. For what it is worth, it worked in Windows XP SP2
with the ASUS supplied driver, but I only tried it as a SATA driver, not
a RAID driver. When ASUS updated that board, they did away with that
chip. That may tell you something.
I am using a US$499.99 Adaptec controller in my newest machine. I
nearly bought the 3ware $899.99 card. I don't regret the Adaptec, and
probably wouldn't regret the 3ware.
