Windows 7: Error when attempting to get WEI

Error when attempting to get WEI

After I upgrade installed 7057 on top of 7000, I got the following error message when attempting to have the system rated for WEI:

Could not measure storage performance.
The disk cannot be accurately assessed while write caching is disabled. Before re-running the Disk assessment, check the Device Manager option to enable write caching.

I attempted to get the write caching enabled, but error message said "Windows could not change the write-caching setting for this device."

Any remedy?

It's a regular Hitachi SATA drive.

Have you updated your chipset drivers?

OT, can you use the paperclip to upload your images to the forum, this also has a resizing feature, TY.

Hi guys -- I've already posted about this I think about 2 weeks ago.

This solution seems to work in a lot of cases.

1) INSTALL the INTEL (or manufacturers) chipset and IGNORE the "The driver you are trying to install is older than the current one" - especially if its the Microsoft driver.

2) ensure the correct SATA drivers etc are installed (ICH7/8 etc) and any video acceleration (such as Inter GM945/965 etc etc).

3) re-boot the machine

4) in elevated comand mode (coomand prompt==>run as administrator) run the WEI in command mode

type in Winsat formal.

If this doesn't fix it then "Houston --- We have a problem....."

With builds 7048 / 7057 you can still enable AERO etc even if WEI is broken.


Cheers
jimbo

Thanks everybody.
I sent out my post just before going to bed last night, and this morning found all these responses. My replies would have been essentially the same as those by rayjavy.
I guess I would wait for the next build or RTM for solution.
