Motherboard with SATA, PCI. Won't recognise IDE board in PCI slot. What do I do?


Motherboard has 6 SATA inputs, no IDE. I put a PCI to 2 IDE connectors into PCI slot but cannot get it recognised (Ubunto 10.10) What do I do?

Post your 'lspci' output.

You will have to find a kernel driver for the card.

Which one...

That is you installed an IDE controller card in a PCI slot. What is the make and model of the card? Have you checked to see that this card is supported in linux?

Indeed, does it show up in the results of "lspci" and do you have any messages indicating that it's activated at boot. When I use an old Promise Ultra133 TX2 card, I see the card's BIOS load.

Do you have Ubuntu installed? My Promise card is not recognized by a live-cd when I try to boot the live-cd from an CD-ROM connected to the card. There is an error message.

As above but other checks too. Re-seat card. Move card to other slot. Is the board known OK? Is it known to work with linux.


Some bios's are just odd about add on cards too.

Also check the motherboard's BIOS configuration for expansion cards.

Is that a help?

The bit of your lspci output I edited down to is your card.

Seems to be conflicting repotrs on that card.

This is not a bug within ubuntu.

The patch supplied by VIA to allow this device to work is not compatible with kernels post Ubuntu 9.10

Via have been informed of this and this should not be progressed until VIA release an update to the official patch.

Post #6 Re: VIA VT6410 IDE RAID card

I think I ended up getting the card to work and used "mdadm" to make a software raid-0. I think just by setting up mdadm setup the card somehow, is my best guess.

Unfortunately the IDE drives themselves were having hardware problems (kernel was throwing disk read/write errors) so I took it all out anyway.

Makes me think that possibly mdadm semi-worked but didtn work 100%.

But then I found this-

VIA vt6410 IDE controller not activating

Comment 19 Gus Wirth 2011-06-09 15:23:51 EDT

This is definitely fixed in Fedora 15. I haven't tested it with previous
versions yet, but I remember reading a commit somewhere in kernel 2.6.33 that
probably fixed this.

I recommend closing it as fixed.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=444543

Could be because of different ways that fedora 15 and ubuntu 10.10 deal with HDDs.

So you could try mdadm. Or a IDE to SATA converter (I havent checked if they work with linux). Or a different IDE controller card. Or just get a SATA HDD to replace your old IDE discs.

BTW, 10.10 is end of life and out of support.

Thank you all very much for your help. It seems that VIA haven't got a driver for the card for Ubuntu 10.10, so I solved my problem by getting an external cast for the IDE drive, plugging it into the USB port & dd_ing the contents to my SATA drive.(can you have a verb ... "dd_ing"?)

That works as well.

dd_ing sounds fine to me.
