Windows 7: SAS Controller Problems

25 Jun 2015   #41

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

[QUOTE=gregrocker;3095832]Was your previous install to EFI? Was SATA set to AHCI? Why was the hardware raid being run on it if this was not even known? Was it the factory install?

Yes they where both enabled in the bios before i started with any of this, but on the second install of windows after talking to you guys i disabled it, might try one last time installing windows with EFI and AHCI enabled

I am not a raid expert but even though Hardware raid should be independent of the installed OS an EFI BIOS might still affect the card. I would contact the cards tech-support to ask about the correct settings, or post back a picture so someone more familiar with raid can assist you.

Still waiting to hear what card drivers or patches the new install delivers when you enable hardware updating and run Windows update. Uninstall all the old drivers in Control Panel and Device manager first.

Sorry didn't get chance last night will try tonight and post back before doing any new installs
