Aha, that rings a bell now :-) You can still use the onchip Intel SATA
controller as long as you set it to "Enhanced Mode" in the BIOS, instead
of the default "Auto". I think that, at least in theory, the Intel
controller is supposed to give higher performance because it's not
sharing the PCI bus.
I am using the latest BIOS 28
