  1. To preface this, I have been reading every thread, website and tried everything possible before posting this... I am currently trying to repurpose a old NetApp StoreVault s500 and install the most recent Synology 5.0. Unfortunately, due to the fact that it is an "older technology" and has specific bios limitations, I am limited to 686 based architecture and need to be able to use the onboard RAID controller. The RAID controller that is in the StoreVault connects to 12 hot swap SATA drives; the one controller has two Marvell Chipsets to support the 12 drives; 88SX6081-BCZ and 88SX6041-BCZ. That being said, I have already built multiple "XPEnology" builds on Virtualbox and ESX, but porting it to this physical box is tricky. I believe I have come to the conclusion that the issue is the Marvell Controller/Chipset. I have already turned the StoreVault into a Linux box, so I know that it can be converted into a usable appliance. The StoreVault has two USB ports on the back, so I have leveraged those to put various "Synology Boot Images" to boot and attempt to detect the 12 SATA drives. The boot images I have tried are all the recent various permutations of Nanoboot IMG files, ISOs, etc. I booted into Verbose/Debug mode and, while all drives were detected, all drives threw multiple errors due to some type of ATA issue. I built a Linux VM and am beginning to build/rebuild a custom kernel, but, to be honest, I am getting completely frustrated. I have attached a pic of the errors I am encountering. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance!
