Note: Independent drive configuration is only supported with controllers with Silicon Image SiI3124 or SiI3132 chip set or using the Addonics eSATA-USBadapter.

When the hardware port multiplier is connected to a SATA Host controller with SiI3124 or SiI3132 chip, in the RAID BIOS of the host controller, you will only see one drive and that is the drive connected to port 1 on the hardware PM.

All the SATA drives connected to the hardware PM will show in the SiI4726 Manager.
