The card you mention (its PCISATA... not ICPSATA) is an SI3114. Thats a
generic SATA controller with some BIOS boot support for software RAID.

They say "firmware" - so they've noticed it appears to a BIOS RAID
format, but then it fails. Probably the format is similar but not the
same as a supported BIOS RAID device.
Either way it'll use the software RAID stack even if you get it working.
If the software RAID is proving unreliable though you need to debug the
*real* underlying problem given that code is very reliable on a lot of
