Hi,[quote=chandru;2168635]theres something wrong here…weird!!
device manager says something else:
again same name "Silicon Image SiI 3112 SataRaid controller"
driver provider: Silicon Image
driver date: 17/08/2007
driver version: 188.8.131.52
when i click on driver details…this is what it says
c:\windows\system32\drivers\SI3112r.sys (file version 184.108.40.206)
c:\windows\system32\drivers\SiWinAcc.sys (file version 220.127.116.11)
c:\windows\system32\SilSupp.dll (file version 18.104.22.168)
and all driver providers are Silicon Image…[/quote]This is, what I’d expect.
any ideas?what program did u use for that info u displayed?
I posted the output of Nero Info Tool. I have a PCI card that I applied the non-Raid Base Bios to. So this information is correct, device manager does not report anything else.
[quote=chandru;2168676]can u only update the bios if it was a pci card?? and not the onboard bios for my controller? just want to see if I can flash it to the non-raid bios?[/quote]The Bios of onboard controllers is part of the motherboard Bios. So you can’t flash SiI’s Base Bios.
But you might check the options of your motherboard Bios if there are any configuration options for your controller. Just as an example: My motherboard came with an onboard Promise Sata/IDE controller. The mainboard Bios offers the options “Disabled/Sata/Raid” for that controller.
or is there a way to implement the new bios into my motherboard bios??
This is something, the mainboard manufacturer could do. Please check mainboard manufacturer’s support website.
[quote=chandru;2168647]that is my motherboard and the 2nd picture from top is the picture of my sata controller on the motherboard…which says satalink?[/quote]Since SataRaid and SataLink are the same chip, it does not matter what is written on it The operating mode is determined by the Bios that controls the chip.
