sil 3114 card problem RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hey

    Just bought a Sunix sata4000 card ( silicon image 3114a).

    I have problems entering the Cards BIOS by pressing F4 or ctrl+S under the booting process
    The system also hanging when i connect harddrive to the card.

    Can it be the cards BIOS or IRQ conflict.

    im running on a ASUS M2A-VM HDMI with BIOS 1604 ( i know that i probaly need a upgrade)

    Any one who tryed the same

  • Hey

    Here is how i did it.

    I downloaded the updflash tool, but i could not flash the rom (?)
    then i decided to take the chance and erased the rom.
    After that the boot error was gone and the card is now displaying as a satalink card.
    I know that it is not a raid card anymore, but i dont need it.

  • Hey Chris,

    I've installed 2 crds based on the SiL3114 chip - don't worry about the boot-up messages - just wait till WHS starts. Once it has started and you have logged in, go into Device Manager, select 'SCSI and RAD controllers' - then click on your card (Silicon Image SiL 3114 etc etc) and select 'Update Drivers'  and let the system find drivers for the card - worked for me.

    Best of luck!!
