Windows 7: Can't install on SSD via SIL3114 SATA Controller

Can't install on SSD via SIL3114 SATA Controller

Hello Everyone,

Well my 8 yr. old daughter's been crying for a Win7 computer for weeks now, and so I've put together a computer that I figured should work well enough for her, but I can't seem to get past the first steps of the install!

The mobo's kinda old, and not the greatest; the builtin SATA only works for Raid, so I put in a PCI sata card with the SIL3114 chipset. The computer now sees the 64GB SSD Patriot HD I'm trying to use for her C drive (The SSD is a leftover from a different project... I thought it'd lend some additional performance to help make up for the 1.2 ghz cpu). When I get into Windows setup, though, Win7 does not recognize the drive, and none of the drivers that came with the PCI card seem to work.

I suppose I should have double checked before buying the SATA PCI card to find one that has native Win7 drivers, but I thought the stone age days of needing SATA drivers were over, guess I was wrong!

Anybody have any ideas to help get this install back on track?

Thanks in advance, your help is appreciated!

Hmmm, I just found this other thread, could my problem be because my CD/DVD is on a secondary IDE controller while my SSD is on the SATA?

I know that his issue is mostly different, yet the final post with his resolution sounds familiar...

Try a Std Sata Drive.

Do you have a HDD on the system. If yes, I would try to install there and then move the system to the SSD - with an image or this program.

Hello.

It's not this as my OS drive is SATA/AHCI and both CD/DVDs are PATA/IDE.
