Hard Drive not detected on Abit nf-m2 nview motherboard

Recommended Posts



i am stuck on Abit nf-m2 nview moyherboard.

I installes intel 100/1000 nic and now i can find my xpenology 1.02b.

but hard drives are not detected both ida and sata.

no ahci mode in bios found.

if i buy the above sata controller will xpenology work?

xpenology.me/compatibility sais all areca are supported by 6.1 ...

I think this mobo uses the NVidia sata chipset, which may not be supported. You should try the enhanced extra.lzma file from @IG-88, I'm not sure if that contains the modules, but test it.


I'm also not sure if the Areca is supported, but you do not need an 'expensive' raid controller for xpe/dsm, a 'cheap' 4 port jbod card from syba (based on marvell chipset) will probably work fine

the board seems to be mcp51 and that driver is not working



according to my driver list arc11xx is supported but in this case i dont see how a pci-x controller (64bit) is going to work in a "normal" 32bit pci slot

at least unlikey that it will work in a 32bit slot


safe bet is a ahci controller because ahci is supported by the original kernel of synology
