Areca ARC-1280 ML (24 ports) in JBOD mode bug

There was a bug in ARC-1280 ML which prevented it from using 24 disks – it shows up as PCI Bus Error 0001 (or some other code) during booting ONLY if card was put into JBOD mode: even if firmware is said to be version 1.46 internally, it is dated mid August 2008, this is OLD firmware – get 1.46 from Areca website dated January 2009 and it fixes this bug.
