HP Compaq dx2710 MT with a PCI Sata card 4 port sata (Sil3114)

Hi Good day!

 

Thanks for creating this project! Im new here, using HP Compaq dx2710 MT (2GB RAM) with a PCI Sata card, 4 port sata (Sil3114). Total 6 hard disks will be used, 4 on board sata, and the rest on sata PCI card. 

Downloaded DS3615xs_15047.pat and Jun's Mod v1.02-alpha, works fine, manage to detect on-board sata disks, but nothing on pci sata card, Sil3114. I can see the raid card detects all the disk fine, and did not configure any raid on RAID card bios. 

Anyone could point me the way to ensure the DSM 6.1 detects the hardisks that connected via PCI Sata card, Sil3114?

Could use some help to configre Sil3114 controller card on DSM 6.1? Is this model even compatible? Which China (cheap) controller is recommended for 4 port sata pci/pcie on DSM 6.1?

I'm not a specialist, but I think Synology DSM doesn't work with hardware RAID SATA cards, because it relies on software RAID. For example, that's why you have to crossflash the Dell H200 Perc Sata Raid card from its default IR (Raid) to IT (JBOD) for it can be recognised by the OS. I didn't own any 4 ports RAID card but I used with success a cheap 4 Sata ports Syba PEX40064 (pci-e x1) and changed it because of its speed limitation for a 8 Sata ports Dell H200 Perc I crossflashed to LSI-9211i8i. You could surely  find a very cheap used one, I bought mine 30$, or perhaps your Sil3114 can be crossflashed?

EDIT: your Sil3114 can be flashed with a non-RAID firmware, from my point of view it's the way to go but wait for some more qualified users advices. 

I found a link to latest software stuff for your card, including firmwares, and this guy explains how to set the card to non-RAID/JBOD, if your actual firmware allows it, you don't even need to flash another one.
