SSD not recognized by SI3114 controller, HD is

So I have an old HP Pavilion that was running XP on an IDE drive.  I bought an SSD with the thought that I'd move the XP image over to the SSD and then play with a multiboot setup.

I ended up with a SI3114 4-port sata controller, which finally recognized the SSD at POST time, and eventually got the XP image cloned over to the SSD.

Figured I was good to go.

Booted the current 32-bit PAE image and while it can find the controller, it doesn't seem to be able to startup/connect to the SSD.  Obviously, I know the controller/disk pair are working because it boots XP in 2 secs. :-)  I hot plugged an old 2.5" Fujitsu HD to the controller and the system recognized it..  I hot plugged the SSD and the controller attempts to connect to the disk, but that fails and it doesn't see it.   I have to believe that there may be something fixable in this controller to start an SSD.

Thoughts?

Here's the snippet from the install dmesg where I connected the Fujitsu and re-hotplugged the SSD again.

Re: SSD not recognized by SI3114 controller, HD is

So it appears that the particular brand of SSD I'm using, is a little dubious on the SATA protocol.  While interesting that the old Windows XP drivers has no problem activating it as a boot device, I guess the sata_sil driver doesn't have those tricks up its sleeve.

A teamgroup SSD hot plugged was recognized immediately.
