It is a problem with hardware combinations.

No kidding, I have not enable ATAPI DMA tables in the Promise card series
yet. You can not enable UDMA because the timings are all wrong and the
drive is not in play in total form.

You have to force the driver into action.
You have no way to get UltraDMA enabled.
