Raptor-provided SATA card issues
« on: December 27, 2022, 09:50:33 am »
I'm using the SATA card provided by Raptor when I bought the Talos II. lsusb identifies it as: SATA controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88SE9215 PCIe 2.0 x1 4-port SATA 6 Gb/s Controller (rev ff).

Void Linux can see the optical drive as /dev/cdrom which is a link to /dev/sr0. However, I cannot mount a disc, nor can fdisk open it, both with the same error: "no medium found". I was trying some other distros, and after a few warm reboots, the OS no longer sees the optical drive. I attached a hard drive as well, and the distros I tried couldn't see the hard drive at all (though the hard drive works via USB-SATA cable).

dmesg | grep ata has this output:
Code: [Select]

So I'm wondering, is there a missing firmware file for this? Should I buy another SATA adapter?

Kernel: 6.0.13_1. Didn't work on older kernels either.

Can Petitboot see it from the shell?

My T2 has a 88SE9235 which is slightly different, we've found. Raptor may have sold both. I have two optical drives in mine and both read fine and burn BD-ROMs (but I have to use an Apple USB SuperDrive to burn CDs and DVDs, though I suspect this is the drive, not the controller).

It was recognised by Petitboot, and able to boot an OS installed on a SATA HDD. I'll keep investigating.
