Windows 7: Help on Imaging Scenario


04 Oct 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Service Pack 1
 
 

I have a bit of a hiccup. Macrium Reflect is not detecting my drives in PE. Could this be the same issue as my drives being detected as SCSI drives in Windows 7?

By the way, this is my exact same problem.

I'm using an AMI BIOS. Under "Integrated Peripherals" settings I had
- Onboard Sata Controller [Enabled]
- Onboard Sata Mode [AHCI]
....
which is the way the computer came & is the default.
Windows has always seen the sata (HDD, DVD) as scsi.
When I change the onboard sata mode to [native IDE] windows sees the devices as ATA and Hirens bootCD, SeaTools now work.
Also, if anything the HDD speed has improved a bit.

I would have thought [AHCI] was the correct setting.
The only issue is, I don't have those options in my BIOS settings. Hope you can help.

What disk control settings do you have in your BIOS?

If memory serves me right,

IDE Controller > Active
Sata > Device 0,1 (I've also tried Device 0) and Disabled but disabled means no HDD even in BIOS.

Unless I should be looking for something else?

You need to go in and check.
Note: my problems post is quite old and predated SP1.

There is a registry entry corresponding to ACHI enabling or disabling see this tutorial
AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

In addition to the Macrium pe disk you have the Macrium linux boot disk.
Also Hirens Boot CD has a mini XP environment with Macrium built in. It can be used to located and restore Macrium images.

Sorry for leaving this thread hanging like that. I was quite busy and I kind of given up on this whole subject. But apparently, when I updated to Hiren's BootCD 14.1, it detected my HDDs again in MiniXP. Well, it's that or me messing with the BIOS settings.

In any case, I'll be doing this sometime around Tuesday next week along with my fortnightly PC maintenance. I'll let you know how it goes.
