Paul,

I am going to try to test SIL with a pair of WD 250 GB over the next several days and will let you know. I have been trying to get a hold of the IT from SI, so far unsuccessfully. I emailed someone else, and hopefully they'll get back to me.

I just installed my Hitachi drives and they took 3 resets to boot.  It may be a firmware issue.  Maybe the steelvine is auto-diagnosing the drives and is why it takes a while to clear before it lets it boot.  I think that is why my Raptors take so long.  They are old 36GB Raptors and take forever to clear before allowing to boot, while my 150GB Raptors boot after a couple resets.  I think I might have a 160GB Seagate drive somewhere to test.  I'll have to hunt it down.  I know it is newer, but it came from OfficeMax which usually sells the older models.

Hi Lev,

Calling Sil is of no use, please stop doing that, they just supply the chip and Bios-rom-add-on.
The only one that can do anything towards Sil is MSI, MSI is producing the board and release BIOSses not Sil.
For your information, I have reported this problem to MSI, and trust me, it's reported to people way up in MSI.
But as these people are very busy, it can take a while before I get an answer of some kind.

Bas,

Thanks for the update!  :worship:

I am very surprised that as valid of an issue as this, having been reported to MSI several times at least, has gone unanswered this long! It’s just a very upsetting and frustrating issue. I have personally spoke with several support people at MSI and it took quiet a bit of push and pull just to convince them that the problem is real and not unique to my circumstances. And in the end – “the problem is your drive!”

Sil gave me a number of the local support in NJ. The “manager” was actually very pleasant and gave a few numbers of the ITs. I left a message with one of them.

I am sure that if you have any pull with the brass at MSI, that that would definitely be of more help. We’ll await with baited breath…

Lev,

I do not know if they answer to my request, normally they do, but sometimes they don't.
It was just by mistake I read your message, as I moderate AMD/Server and a few other parts in the forum, I seldom read in here.

But I saw this item had a lot of posts and I was bored so I started reading in here.

Anyway, give my trail inside MSI a week or so, as it will take a bit of time.
Do PM me, say 14 dec, if you haven't seen an answer of some kind from me posting MSI's response or hopefully a fixing BIOS.
