There is NO driver out for that yet - not sure, if there will be.

I suggest NOT holding your breath. while waiting.
H*ll may freeze over.

*sigh*, Kicks self for buying a "off" brand (Although, buying *BIG
NAME* brands seems no better).
Was there any question that Vista *was* going to be released the
moment CPP hit? All these dense suppliers that did not have working
drivers +ready+ by release day, don't care to support older hardware.

Default Vista drivers for Silicon Image 0680 RAID controllers32-bit & x64 bit versions

32-bit version is downloadable he

http://www.siliconimage.com/support/...id=2&osid =4&

SiI0680/0680A 32-bit Windows RAID Driver 1.0.1.7 1/24/2005 139 KB

It's the WinXP 32-bit driver - but works perfectly in Vista

I used it for 6-months during Vista betas, and RTM - no problems at all

x64-bit version is available he
http://www.siliconimage.com/support/...id=2&osid =8&

It's the SiI 0680/0680A 64-bit Windows RAID Driver 1.0.0.0 12/16/2005 635 KB version

It's the WinXP 64-bit driver - but works perfectly in Vista - used without a problem since beginning of December 2006 when I re-installed Vista x64 (from 32bit, using the above driver)

Don't believe anyone who says things aren't available - they just haven't tried hard enough.

Have you tried to MANAGE your Sil 0680 RAID?
The Medley manager does not work (CPP-RC2 x86 )
The Sil 0680a CPL tool hangs.

Yes, the 'driver' allows me to use the drive(s), AS IS.
What good is an un-managed RAID set?

Koutech (my Sil 0680 based board manufacturer), indicated that NO
Vista tools were available, *Yet*.
*Yet*, is getting longer...........................................

Steve...
For now I'm just happy, I have access to my drives, where I store my
downloads etc.
Haven't had any issues with the set since I set it up under XP...
If I really need to fiddle with it, I'll just boot to my XP and do it under
that.

During initial Vista Setup, did you press F6 and supply the Sil0860
driver?
If Not, Try running "Repair" from the DVD and install the Sil driver
then.

Default Silicon Image sill 0680 ultra-133 medley ata raid controller [

@Steve
Medley v1.2.0.5 works for me perfectly on both Vista 32-bit & 64-bit.
Setup/Load/Configuration & Monitoring are all working 100%. (if I could post
a screencap I would!) My Vista's are always clean installs. The last version
released is downloadable from
http://www.siliconimage.com/docs/SiI...iICfg-1205.zip

For those not familiar with Medley, you don't need it by default - it just
provides some feedback and SMART monitoring ability - which is built into
Vista performance/reliability monitor now. Vista now also defaults to the
fastest UDMA mode for the controller - so you don't need it for maximum
performance.

@Carlo67
The link to the drivers you sent are for NON-RAID versions of the card - but
you indicate you have a RAID controller. If you use my links, it will be seen
as a RAID controller, not the IDE version with 3 independent drivers attached.

The other important thing is not to flash the RAID BIOS with the NON-RAID
update (v3.2.2.0) - as this will* also convert the RAID controller into a
standard IDE controller.

* There are two main flavours of the Sil0680 card - one with a jumper which
you can manually set RAID or IDE, and one without. If you have a version
without, then it relies on the BIOS info to enable or disable the RAID
functions - which is why you MUST NOT flash a RAID controller with a NON-RAID
(ie IDE) BIOS. If the POST/BIOS boot screens on your PC still show the
controller as a RAID one, then you're fine as far as the BIOS goes - just use
the drivers I linked to, and you'll get RAID under Vista.

Unfortunately, the link you left contains several IDE (non-raid) BIOS
updates. The last official RAID BIOS version was v3.2.1.0. However, of you
have the version of the card with the Jumper, then you can actually use the
later v3.2.2.24 (!use at your own risk! !you break it - tough luck! )

So, in brief - All versions of Vista (32-bit & x64) work with the 0680 Sil
Controller, as well as the medley monitoring software.

Hope that this helps.
