Danis506.ADD does not recognize P55 Express chipset and Marvell SATA controllers

Reported by: REXX Owned by: stevenhl
Priority: minor Milestone: Release-1.8.16
Component: danis506.add Version: 1.8.9
Keywords: Cc:


I've installed eComStation (eCS) 2.0 on my system, using DaniS506.ADD, version 1.8.5. I then upgraded to version 1.8.7.

The DaniS506.ADD driver only recognizes the J-Micron IDE/SATA controller on the motherboard (MB). It does not recognize the SATA 2.0 controller, built into the P55 Express chipset. This controller has six (6) SATA 2.0 connectors. The driver also does not recognize the Marvell controller, which has two (2) SATA 3.0 connectors. The J-Micron controller has only one (1) SATA connector and it is SATA 2.0, not SATA 3.0. Therefore, I had to downgrade my expectations to SATA 2.0 performance. Also, I had to use a USB 2.0 port to connect my second hard drive (because the J-Micron has only 1 connector).

Is it possible to get version 1.8.9 of the driver, which AHCI aware? Hopefully, this version will recognize all of my SATA controllers.

I do not want to go to eCS 2.1, which has the 1.8.9 driver. I spent a lot of time manually migrating my existing system over to eCS 2.0. The migration on the install did not work for me.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Type changed from defect to task

Version 1.8.9 is available with eCS 2.1 or with a Software Subscription. If you can get someone to build you a version, the GPL source code is also available.

  • Milestone changed from Release-1.8.7 to Release-1.8.12
  • Priority changed from major to minor
  • Resolution wontfix deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened
  • Version changed from 1.8.7 to 1.8.9

Analysis indicates that danis506.add can be modified to detect and operate this chipset in compatibility mode. Native mode support is unlikely to be added because the os2ahci.add will always provide better support for the chipset.
