I was however able to load the latest silicon image driver 1. I am sure you have better things to do. Here are the lines to add in the INF file: This leads me to believe there is a proprietary quirk for lack of a better term in the design of the sa and it may not have followed the Silicon Image design specification, but of course thats only speculation. They also have new non-RAID drivers. Why even take the time to respond as you did? I am using a 32 bit driver and a 32 bit version of Vista Business.

I didn’t have to reinstall win2k since I’ve upgraded Before I had to re-install windows 12 times in a month before thinking about this.

Thanks again for the info in trying to solve this problem. Will continue working on this and let you know if I figure it out. You only have to say that sataa want to use the driver when Windows is telling you that the driver is not made for that device The SA’s ID strings are not present without mods to the INF file.


Thanks for the update ValDar! If you have any more thoughts on this please let me know as I’m ready to throw in the towel Solsman Dec 12, I guess I overlooked the possibility of a driver conflict as my generic card worked fine.

So, you’ve installed the latest drivers and the flashing utility doesn’t recognize the card? Only the “Flash image file: Adaptec lists this unit as one they are NOT planning to upgrade to Vista compatiblility.

For other SiI cards: Great features and good sound, but fills a narrow niche Great features and good sound, but fills a narrow niche by Ty Pendlebury.

I don’t think anyone cares.

I will now go into testing mode with this generic card and make sure it is fully operational. Can you provide instructions 1205ea to how to modify the inf file as ValDar may need them and I definitely would in the future.


Why even take the time to respond as 1250sa did? Thanks to DragonMaster and Eyedoctor2 for keeping me focused on the details.

Unfortunately still no hook into vista, but xp works with everything. We delete comments that violate our policywhich we encourage you to read. Would howt of you two mod the INF file to see?
