Silicone Image Sil680 Controller in Windows 7 x64

The Adaptec ASH-1233 is a dual port IDE RAID controller card that features a Silicone Image Sil680 Sil0680 chipset. Drivers for it were never officially released for Windows 7 but this guide and drivers will help you enable your Sil680 chipset in Windows 7 (x64 or Itanium). The driver was released by Silicone Image but never officially supported since the product was discontinued before the launch of Windows 7.

If anyone is going to test this with Vista or Windows 8/10 please let me know in the comments if the drivers work for those platforms.
