!!!all sata_* and pata_* drivers are still not working because of the kernel source changes Synology did (same as in kernel 3.10.102 used and modded by Synology), as long as no one writes a patch for this I can use to fix this, it will stay this way !!! 

 

storage device list
...
 Silicon Image
[pata_sil680: CMD/Silicon Image SiI680 PCI PATA controller] -> does not load: Unknown symbol syno_libata_index_get (err 0)
[sata_sil:SiI311x, SiI3512 / SB300, SB300C, SB4x0] -> does not load: Unknown symbol syno_libata_index_get (err 0) 
...

so no way with 6.1 or 6.2

i'd suggest to get a ahci compatible controller instead Marvell 88SE9215 bases are used often and are not expansive

important is to buy nothing with port multiplier, thats not working in xpenology

there are also two "real" 8 port ahci controllers i know about both use a 4x pcie card with a pcie bridge to host 2x4port (88SE9215) or 4x2port ahci chips

(i wrote in a thread about it lately, should be found using the search)

Yes this should work, I've done the same for xpe testing purposes. Drives might show up in a strange order depending on pci slots and internal controller setup but otherwise ok.

as the 9215 is a 4port sata chip it will not have a multiplier, should be ok

always check on the chips and if there is no info hands off

i've already seen a mini-pcie/M.2 card with a 2port chip and multiplier, so its possible to get a bad one when not checking

 

this card seems to be the same with a 9215

@liniuks Cool :-) Is that the card from AliExpress you linked to? 

What size is your cabinett? Seems like that card would not fit inside a Mini-ITX cabinet.
