I'm using an Asus A8N-SLI (NForce2) using only the on-board SATA
controller (and IDE for cdrom). I have absolutely no problem. Perhaps i
can suggest that you get a PCI Sata controller from e-bay for around £5
and see if you get the same results.
Also you could (and probably have) try something simple like resetting
the ESCD or the loading bios defaults.
