I have a "Tower Raid" with 4 drives. Sil 3132

Driver works fine with SATA option checked: 2 Raid1 (mirrored HDs) are correctly detected.

Driver doesn't work with DP option checked: 4 Drives are incorrectly detected.

So there seems to be an issue with DP and RAID?

Cheers,
Dave

Please post the HWIDs for the device.

Thanks,

Here is the HWID

PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3132&SUBSYS_71321095&REV_01\4&1B30CF2&0&00E0: Silicon Image SiI 3132 SoftRaid 5 Controller

I also have (but works fine)
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2822&SUBSYS_1082147B&REV_02\3&2411E6FE&0&FA: Intel® ICH8R/ICH9R/ICH10R/DO SATA RAID Controller

Hmmm, hwid 'VEN_1095&DEV_3132&SUBSYS_71321095' appears in the DP, and entries generated in the script appear correctly for it:

CODE
IniWrite,"%target_win%\txtsetup.sif","HardWareIdsDatabase","PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3132&SUBSYS_71321095","#$q3132R5C#$q"
IniWrite,"%target_win%\txtsetup.sif","SourceDisksFiles","3132R5C.SY_","1,,,,,,4_,4,1,,,1,4"
IniWrite,"%target_win%\txtsetup.sif","SCSI.Load","3132R5C","3132R5C.SY_,4"
IniWrite,"%target_win%\txtsetup.sif","SCSI","3132R5C","#$qSilicon Image 3132 SoftRaid 5 for BIOS 7223#$q"


Extract Si3132r5.sy_ from the sata script and rename it to 3132R5C.SY_. Then copy it to 'Workbench\Common\DPs\MassStorage\ScriptFiles\common' (replacing the file that was there). Then rebuild the project with the DPs Mass Storage Drivers script selected (do not rebuild it otherwise you'll overwrite the copied file!). Then see if you have access to your disks.

Thanks,
Galapo.

I will try this, but just to clarify: I have access to all four disks. However all four disks are listed individually. There should be only two Raid1 drives (). That's the strange part.

Dave

OK, I understand what you mean now. Test and see if what I said works, then we can go from there.

Regards,
Galapo.

Galapo, there is no 3132R5C.SY_ in 'Workbench\Common\DPs\MassStorage\ScriptFiles\common'. That's probably the issue?

Edit: Actually there is :-)

Dave

There should indeed be that file.

Open up DPs-MassStorageDrivers.script in either the WB editor or a text editor like notepad and post the line Description= line. I'm now wanting to know which mass storage pack version you built with.

Thanks,
Galapo.

Galapo, yes, the file is there.

Both, scripts are v37 and I can see you are actually the author :-)

Description=Adds DriverPacks Mass Storage drivers to the build. Script has been automatically generated from DP BASE version '805' and mass storage pack version '805'. Suitable for XP or 2003. (Adds ~8.37mb to the build.)

Cheers,
Dave

OK, good. Please return to the original test as DP is fine. Let's see if the replaced file makes any difference.
