Hi, as Paul suggested to me at one stage, what are the odds that your
SATA drive is just faulty ? I got 2 maxtor 160GB drives straight from
komplett. They appeared to be from a wrong batch, first one died
within minutes not being detected by the sil3112 controler. Second one
played dumb for a bout 3 month before beginning to report errors
although smart was telling me everything was ok. So i'd suggest to try
out with another card/disk. Another possibility is the bios revision
of your mobo but i'm sure you've checked that already.
