There aren't many SATA options, INT13 on or off (can't boot from it
without that on..) and then S-ATA, P-ATA or RAID modes.

S-ATA and P-ATA (another way of saying legacy on/off) modes both crash
and burn the same, corrupting most data on the disk that the controller
touches.

It's too bad, the SiI3114 32-bit PCI SATA controller is considerably
slower, but at least it works reliably.

I tend to agree with what Anton Yuzhaninov said on 11/9, this seems like
it could be a PCI-X problem with the ServerWorks HT1000/HT2000 chipset
(and other chipsets) and FreeBSD.
