This chipset is pure waste, and should not be used under any
circumstances. There may be a possibility to disable the IDE channels it
offers and use an external controller, but I cannot guarantee it will
remove the unstableness it introduces. Your best bet is to demolish the
motherboard carrying this wretched chip, and find a new one.
