Description of problem:
I can`t install Fedora 15 on my Asus Rampage III Black Edition because the SATA 3 HDs arent detected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 15 - Kernels 2.6.38 - 2.6.40
Reproductibility: Install/Run (Live) Fedora 15 on Asus Rampage III Black Edition (wich has Marvell 88SE91xx SATA 3) and try to detect HDs (2x WDC SATA 3 Velociraptor as RAID 0) on SATA 3 port
Actual results: Controller is exhibited with lspci, but none of their HDs are detected. Logs don`t show nothing regardind the SATA 6 HDs
That HDs are properly detected.
None for now.
Do you have this set to AHCI mode in the BIOS?
Can you post the dmesg from the install attempt?
Have you tried the Fedora 16 Beta release at all?
Sorry by may lack of contact, but the problem still persists.
Doing a lot o research, I`ve been capable to find some clues.
As pointed here ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Marvell_Technology_Group_chipsets#88SE91xx_Chipsets_Linux_support ), if I do /bin/echo 1b4b 91a2 > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ahci/new_id my SATA Controller is recognized and I my HDs, despite the raid, are recognized.
My Marvell SATA 6Gbps is set to RAID mode in BIOS, but, this is not a problem. After the command above, I just need to do dmraid -s and my raid show up.

With no response, we are closing this bug under the assumption that it is no longer an issue. If you still experience this bug, please feel free to reopen the bug report.
Sorry! This bug has still been a issue. It happend with Fedora 16, 17 and now, 18. As I mentioned before, if I do /bin/echo 1b4b 91a2 > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ahci/new_id, I can see the following error in /var/log/messages, repeated 5 times: device-mapper: ioctl: device doesn't appear to be in the dev hash table. But, despite of that, my disks becomes accessible then I can mount, format, resize, etc...
I'm trying hard to install Fedora 18 on the disks on my Marvell Sata controller. During the install process, I can use this trick to install Fedora, but it doesn't initialize.
I've found the following infos about Marvell Sata 88SE91xx family:
In some point I've found a suggestion to create a file called marvell.modules in /etc/sysconfig/modules, with the content:
if [ -e /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ahci ]; then
/bin/echo 1b4b 91a2 > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ahci/new_id 2>/dev/null
but until now seems it doesn't work.
I'm all available to help fix this problem.
The marvell.module archive is working. I don't know why it didn't before. Probably is because I've done a lot of things together.
With this file, all disks on Marvell controller become accessible even in raid, but I'm still not able to initialize the linux installed on that disks.
As far as I can check, grub can find the array and "testload" the kernel image with ok status.
Is there a way to tell ahci to recognize Marvell Controller through Grub?
