SIL3132 Windows Server 2008 x64 Driver

Windows Server 2008 x64 R2 installs and seems to work fine on the SS4200.


One of the major issues is that a driver for the SIL3132 is not available for
2008 x64 R2.


I was able to get it running with the following procedure:




I downloaded driver version from under the drivers
listed for the SIL3132.  It is listed as the base driver for windows 7 x64


unpack the driver zip file and under AMD64 SI3132.inf was modified in the
following way:



was added to the bottom of section: [SI_HDC.NTamd64]


HKR,SupportedSubsystemIDs, %SI3132_SUB_ID_DESC_INTEL%, 0x00010001,

was added to the bottom of section: [SupportedSubSystemIds_AddReg]


SI3132_SUB_ID_DESC_INTEL=”Silicon Image SiI 3132 SATALink Controller

was added to section [Strings] right underneath the line:
SI3132_SUB_ID_DESC_DELL_3=”Silicon Image SiI 3132 SATALink Controller


Finally, go to the mass storage controller with the yellow warning mark,
select update driver and navigate to the AMD64 directory.


The driver should be auto detected.  You will get a warning that the driver
is unsigned.
