It is not very easy to figure out how the driver maps
the harddisks to which adapters and ports.

We need output like Danis.

Also needed is to be able to get the info as we can with Danis from

The driver does not map disks to adapters and ports, they are whatever they are plugged into.

The driver already provides the information that is available via os2ahci$

If you have a specific request for a specific feature, then I will consider it, Otherwise, the driver currently outputs the information that it can. The OS2AHCI driver is not the DANIS506 driver and does not work the same way.

I of course meant which adapter and port numbers, the BIOS/HW maps to,
as these numbers are needed for the driver command line.

I noticed now, the the /V:2 output is only sent to OS2AHCI$ device.
I would very much like, that the /V:2 output is sent to screen too !

It is not very easy to extract the info from OS2AHCI$ when you need it
for installing eCS from a boot CD - where screen info is much easier
to get.

In my Vbox setup, the output is:

It looks to me, like there should have been other info.
