  • ICH
  • ICH2
  • ICH3
  • C-ICH
  • ICH4
  • ICH5
  • 6300ESB
  • ICH6

This driver also supports the SATA controllers in IDE mode included with the listed intel chipsets:

  • ICH5
  • 6300ESB
  • ICH6
  • CE3100
  • ICH7
  • NM10
  • 631xESB, 632xESB
  • ICH8

SATA ports in AHCI mode(on chipset models supporting this mode) are driven by the AHCI driver.

Modes Supported



Known Problems

  • CE3100 Stepping A0 is not supported because workarounds are needed to fix errata:
    • DMA burst size must be 64 bytes at most
    • SATA PCI header is not completely PCI compatible
    • SATA PCI Device ID is wrong
    • SATA memory mapped PCI header is wrong
