FC9 : Pb with sata_via adaptor and sata disk


On my linux box, I use a pci adaptor to provide sata port because my motherboard doesn't
have serial ata port. My sata adaptor is a :

# lspci
02:0b.0 RAID bus controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6421 IDE RAID Controller (rev 50)

When the system boots, the sata disk is well recognized. I can use fdisk and mkfs to build
a filesystem without any problems

But, when I try to mount this filesystems, I can see these errors in the /var/log/messages kernel: EXT3-fs error (device sdc2): ext3_check_descriptors: Inode table for group 4 not in group (block 99331)!
kernel: EXT3-fs: group descriptors corrupted!

If I use mkfs.ext3 command instead mkfs, I can't see this message but only :
kernel: VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev sdc1

fdisk -l /dev/sdc   gives me:

Disk /dev/sdc: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x198a1989

  Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdc1               1       60789   488287611   83  Linux
/dev/sdc2           60790      121601   488472390   83  Linux

this disk has been worked well on another machine. Is there any problem with
the sata_via kernel modules:
[root mercure ~]# lsmod | grep sata

Thanks for your help if you can help me
