I want to add a couple of SATA drives using a PCI SATA controller. Do you have any recommendations for me that will work with 12.04?

Can you use PCI-Express 2.0 x1? – Mitch May 22 '12 at 8:22
No PCI express please. – ECII May 22 '12 at 9:17

First let start by saying that SATA PCI cards are hard to come by. But take a look at this card here.

It states that it has Red Hat Linux, SuSE Linux, Linux open source code. I can not find out if it has been tested with 12.04, but this site here has tested the cart with 7.04.

I know this may not be the answer that you are looking for, but I could not find any other information or cards :).

I asked some of the guys that I work with, and I was told that if the card works with 7.04, that it should work with 12.04. but there is no way for me to verify that, I hope that you understand
