z240 - add SATA card (no working)

z240
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hi

I have bought a z240 tower which runs really well with win 7 pro. Recently, I wanted to add an SATA extension card, but without any success. I am looking for a simple SATA controller without RAID functionality (which unnecessary slows down the boot procedure).

 

Unfortunately, HP does not offer any SATA boards as accessories - Is there any recommendation for such a card from your side?

 

I've bought a LogiLink PC0059A card, unfortunately, the system does no longer startup when connecting drives to it. The hp BIOS  screen appears as usual, then the card shows the attached drives, after that the hp bios screen appears again and reamains without any reaction (reboot required).

 

Thanks for any hints

 

Tom

You will find compatible parts here:

The situation you see is due to uncampatible device connected.

Wish you luck,
Karthik

Hi Karthik

 

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately there are no SATA card parts listed. Does anyone have an additional SATA controller in use which is fully working?

 

Best regards

Tom
