32-bit version is downloadable here:
SiI0680/0680A 32-bit Windows RAID Driver 18.104.22.168 1/24/2005 139 KB
It's the WinXP 32-bit driver - but works perfectly in Vista
I used it for 6-months during Vista betas, and RTM - no problems at all
x64-bit version is available here:
It's the SiI 0680/0680A 64-bit Windows RAID Driver 22.214.171.124 12/16/2005 635
It's the WinXP 64-bit driver - but works perfectly in Vista - used without a
problem since beginning of December 2006 when I re-installed Vista x64 (from
32bit, using the above driver)
There is also a tool called "SilCFG forMedley", you don't need it by default
- it just
provides some feedback and SMART monitoring ability - which is now built into
Vista performance/reliability monitor now. Vista now also defaults to the
fastest UDMA mode for the controller - so you don't need it for maximum
The last version of Medley v126.96.36.199 works for me perfectly on both Vista
32-bit & 64-bit. Setup/Load/Configuration & Monitoring are all working 100%.
(if I could post
a screencap I would!) My Vista's are always clean installs. The last version
released is downloadable from
The other important thing is not to flash the RAID BIOS with the NON-RAID
update (v188.8.131.52) - as this will* also convert the RAID controller into a
standard IDE controller.
* There are two main flavours of the Sil0680 card - one with a jumper which
you can manually set RAID or IDE, and one without. If you have a version
without, then it relies on the BIOS info to enable or disable the RAID
functions - which is why you MUST NOT flash a RAID controller with a NON-RAID
(ie IDE) BIOS. If the POST/BIOS boot screens on your PC still show the
controller as a RAID one, then you're fine as far as the BIOS goes - just use
the drivers I linked to, and you'll get RAID under Vista.
Unfortunately, the link you left contains several IDE (non-raid) BIOS
updates. The last official RAID BIOS version was v184.108.40.206. However, of you
have the version of the card with the Jumper, then you can actually use the
later v220.127.116.11 (!use at your own risk! !you break it - tough luck! )
So, in brief - All versions of Vista (32-bit & x64) work with the 0680
Silicon Image ATA-133 RAID Controller, using the driver links above as well
as the SilCFG for Medley monitoring software.
Hope that this helps.
