Windows 7: Marvell 9128 Problem?

Marvell 9128 Problem?

As I stated in a posting on another posting, I have a Gigabyte motherboard with a Marvell 9128 drive controller (check out my system specs below). This is a brand new system, with all brand new components. I was trying to set it up in SATA3 mode, configuring the drives for RAID 1. I installed Windows 7 Pro 64-bit a couple weeks ago, and started setting it up with drivers and utilities, etc.

On a reboot cycle, the system went to the windows splash, and then directly to the "Your disk needs to be checked for consistency" chkdsk screen. This resulted in a run through phase 1, which found several errors, resulting in "Correcting error in" messages, and then a message "An unspecified error occurred" followed by a long hex number. This is followed by "Windows had finished checking your disk. Please wait while your computer restarts." Then, the cycle restarts, the same as above, except that it seems to be finding later errors (higher indecies/file numbers/etc.), and eventually after many reboot cycles works it's way through stage 2. Eventually, the machine boots normally, but things are inevitably missing (I've done this multiple times), and the next reboot cycle results in starting this whole cycle over again.

I have deleted the partitition, created a new one and reinstalled Windows twice now. The same thing happens. I have also downloaded and installed Marvell driver version 1.2.0.1002, as recommended on the other thread.

I have multiple questions: first of all, there are conflicting recommendation here and on other discussion cites as to whether chkdsk should be used at all on a RAID installation. Can someone definitively clear this question up? Second, has anyone had anything remotely like this occur with the Marvell controller? What did you do to fix this? Has anyone successfully configured this hardware for a RAID 1 setup?

I am on the verge of restarting this entire process, sacrificing the SATA3 capability and using the Intel controller instead (or should I use the Micron controller?).

That is a fairly old driver. Before you do that why don;t you try the 1.2.0.1006 driver.

OK, fine, Station-Drivers (French site that's the only place I seem to be able to find Marvell drivers) just put up 1.2.0.1006 last week, and I hadn't noticed. Downloaded, installed, still running chkdsk every time I boot. I have a feeling only a chip firmware update would help, but I haven't figured out how to do that (or if it's even possible on the Gigabyte board). Any ideas?

I would only trust the firmware updates for the chip from the motherboard manufacturer. Drivers are usually MB agnostic, but not firmware. Sorry I couldn't help more.
