I own a MSI P35 Neo with following chips [1]:

"One Ultra DMA 66/100/133 IDE controller integrated in Marvell(R) 88SE6111"
"SATAII controller integrated in ICH9/ICH9R and Marvell(R) 88SE6111 chipest"
"Supports AHCI controller with SATA RAID 0/1/0+1/5 or JBOD mode by ICH9R"
"Supports one SATAII port by 88SE6111"
"Supports PCI Express LAN 10/100/1000 Fast Ethernet by Realtek 8111B"

1st problem: PATA DVD drive: boots the kernel from install cd -> can't
mount root fs from cd for installation
2nd problem: PATA HDD drive: is not recognized too
3rd problem: I can't tell you if the nic works because i can't boot
any FreeBSD Live CD (Linux too) nor install FreeBSD to a PATA drive

The SATA ports are recognized by the system as far as i saw on the
boot messages so the ICH9/ICH9R shouldn't be the problem.

Google won't tell me much about the Marvell 88SE6111 so i wonder if
someone's out there who can code or already has a compiled driver
driver for this piece of hardware. Unfortunately I can't compile my
own kernel because I only have this one computer...

There was a conversation on current@ a few months ago [2] but i think
it stopped without any result.

Last but not least a few links I found while searching for help:
