|More on OS X 10.7 Lion (GM) and SATA Card/Drivers:|
Follow-up to Friday's post from a reader on the suggestion to try reinstalling the Sil3132 drivers:
"Hi, Mike. Followed your advice and re-installed the SiL3132 drivers over Lion. At restart, the Mac Pro appeared to hang, then restarted itself a couple of times, then after about 5-6 minutes of the spinning clock, and just as I was about to hold-in the Power button, arrived at my Desktop.
I connected two bare SATA drives to the card and they both appeared on the Desktop. I opened folders, etc just to make sure everything was still on the drives but didn't copy or move any files between the seven HDs but will try again after the weekend.
Once again, thanks for the advice.
I asked him to let me know if he saw any problems in longer term use.
And a reader replied to my comments Friday wondering if the NewerTech 6G (non-PM) card still had native support in 10.7:
"I can confirm that the NewerTech 6G non PM card works fine under the Lion GM. I have mine installed in a 2010 six core 3.33GHz Mac Pro.
Another reader (Thanks Ed), sent a note that the readme in the current driver (dated 7/5/11) for the NewerTech 6G card w/PM support lists OS X 10.7 compatibility. (Product page has a link to the Driver download.)
