I have just purchased a Zotac Nano computer which uses Intel HM77 Express chipset and has an eSATA port. I was surprised to notice my 8-bay hard disk enclosure did not work on this machine. I have read online that the Intel chipset supports eSATA port multipler in hardware but that the Windows drivers do not have it supported. However, some reports are that it should work under Linux.
Does anyone have any idea about getting the on-board eSATA port to work with port multipliers?
