I have a hybrid system with two big disks residing on two SATA ports
from my SiI3112R controller.
(Test-) Installing Vista on one of my IDE disks worked fine; but i'm
unable to install to my SATA drive,
no matter what I do!
Yes I know how to do it, have the driver
files on a floppy disk or a USB
device, install - no breaking news.
But now the following happens:
Vista displays the green animated bar on the bottom FOREVER and I had to
switch off after leaving it running for 15 minutes.
Downloading a new SATA RAID driver from Silicon Image web site did not
have any effect either.
I'm not using RAID at all...but I *must* use the RAID drivers
(sii3112r.sys) as the other R-less ones did not work on Windows 2000
Did anyone experience something similar to that when installing vista?
