Re: Promise Ultra133 TX2 problem?

Hi Breen...
Apart from OBSD :
Note than the Promise IDE RAID card is not configured to work in any RAID mode, control the shared IRQs,and note then the controller has
problems if you add a secundary drive in any channel, it works well with
2 primaries drives.....(is a cheap card...)
Highly recommended you post the exit of your dmesg command...........

I have ruled out a possible problem between the mainboard and the Promise controller by

Is this a known problem?  Is there some way I can get around this (other than the obvious
way of getting yet another controller and only hooking up three drives to the Promise controller)
