Windows 7: Storport BSOD


10 Apr 2013   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64
 
 
Storport BSOD

Newly built custom server. Both my storage drive and OS drive are on the same Channel. When the storage drive is not connected I haven't had any BSODs (could be coincidence).

I would rather not have to spend another grand and buy new drives for the SAS channels; would like to continue using SATA if we can get this fixed.

Zip file attached, you guys rock.

Also, I have swapped out all the drives and tried new ones; both OS drive and storage drives; no luck there.

The BSOD is caused by Intel Rapid Storage.

I'm running a Windows RAID, is there any major advantage to using RST rather Windows native?

Yes, I know that it is stated there in the download page. But that is the only stable version of RST lately that only works good with windows 7. You may find it contradictory, but it is true And that is only why I suggested this particular version only. It works, every time, everywhere.

Is running a RAID is a must? In most of the cases it is not; but you may have the real requirement. In that case, it is assumed that the third party drivers performs better than the native driver. Somebody says it is the truth, somebody says the reverse. There is a lot of controversy on this topic. But If you want to use the intel driver successfully, unfortunately the 11.2.0.1006 driver is the only stable option there.

Yeah, redundancy is key; we have a lot of data running to this server; daily backups and mirroring for fault tolerance. I'm going to go with native for a few weeks. If we see a performance hit I will install the intel driver recommended. Please keep this forum open as it was previously a week or so between BSODs. Thanks again, especially for the version tip.

Update

Been over a week now and there are no longer any issues. Will stick with native drivers - no performance hit noticed.
