It contains a Marvel 88SX Sata2 controller. I would like to reuse the qnap case instead of just scrapping it. Thanks for the replies.. Which is not the point.. Marvell 88SX controller only shows 2 drives instead of 4. It seems the Marvell 88SX should be well supported, it pops up all over the placed when searching for that type of card, even in the FreeNAS forums.

According to this post: Buy card x, y or z, your card is crap. Marvell 88SX controller only shows 2 drives instead of 4.
So i am trying to get the backplane with that controller on board working. I just verified that the card is working fine under Windows 7 with the current driver provided by SonnetTech.
It’s probably only some minor tweak of the settings – but I have no idea where and what to change. I have seen a few mentions of people having similar issues with only a few drives seen, but those posts are old and note very helpful.

Support for Marvell SATA Controller • Hard Disk Monitoring
Yes that’s an ARM based device. This version detects the card and connected hard drives.
The little 4 drive box actualy contains a mini ITX size arm based mother board connected to the hard disk backplane through a PCI-E x4 connector. I can’t swap it out without ditching the whole plan.
Which is fine with me, this thing does not have to be lightning fast.
Unfortunately, connected SATA hard drives are not detected. Port 0, Speed 2.

I think I went for CentOS. Joined Nov 6, Messages 5, Thanks Posted October 30, Just curious if i can get it to work this way as a little marvekl box running some stuff for me.
Posted February 12, Problem is, only the first 2 drives show up. Only drives plugged in to the first 2 channels are recognized. Any suggestions are welcome.
