RE: Rebuilding my SONAR DAW... Question!
I wonder if this depends on the board/manufacturer. For example, when I was building my Abit IP 35 Pro based DAW a few months ago, the Abit forums were filled with horror stories about non-working IDE controllers (and sometimes, data corruption!). I was going with all SATA devices anyway, so was only half-reading these posts, but I seem to remember that the fixes involved installing the MS controller drivers over the JMicron, and/or using a certain BIOS version.
Now, as I said, I may have interpreted it all wrong, but that's what I remember.
Of course, it seemed like they were also coming up with a new BIOS fix every other week, so AFAIK these issues no longer exist (I'm stable with an older BIOS v14).
