The VIA6421 chipset is only important if your on-board chipset is giving you problems. I flashed my Hitachi using the lone onboard SATA port in an old Dell Optiplex 170L (not sure what chipset, but it was Intel) without a single issue. And yes you need the 78/79 Unlock CD, at least I did when I first flashed my drive – not sure if you need it every time you flash but my guess would be yes.
