[QUOTE=MegaDETH;2008213]I am using the SYBA SD-SATA-4P PCI SATA Controller Card with a (SiI3114) chipset flashed to IDE mode.
I have a few questions for you
Does the computer boot as far as showing the cards BIOS and the drive hooked to it or does it hard lock at the computers BIOS?
Have you tried another port on the card?
Tried another cable?
Do you have another SATA drive to try?[/QUOTE]
Yes I can see the cards BIOS and I can get into it. Only the VIA chipsset card gives no bios. Yes, I tried both ports on all three cards.
About trying other sata, Ive tried a hard disk no other SATA optical drive.
The hard disk works with everytime with all PCI cards.
I tried with a SATA hard drive and without the sata hard drive.
Ive tried 3 cables Including the working cable of the sata hard drive.
Did one last thing before the courier for the company comes to pick up to the drive tomorrow.
I put it into another PC and allowed booting but gave errors.
Ran Cdspeed to read a disc and it has no additional sense error. Back to PIO Mode 4 again now. Strange things happening whilst booting up and the BIOS screen getting stuck.

Are saying you have the GGW-H20L working with the PCI card ? Do you have anything else hooked up to the Sata port with it ? Are you in UDMA mode 6 i.e. what is your interface speed ?
