There might be another possibility... I ran into a problem once where Solaris would only allow me to use ATA33 on a Sis controller because the controller driver was unstable at ATA66 in solaris. Perhaps its down clocking so to speak.

I also had a problem with a promise pci ide controller card in Windows once (UDMA100) where the card would not run in UDMA mode at all. It worked and then one day stopped. I tried new cables, different hard drives, etc. Finally the card failed. It was defective. Since then I don't buy promise controllers when I can help it.
