Topic: MSI H61M-E33 board - Intel C600 AHCI controller?

Hello all,

I have been trying unsuccessfully to use DP Mass Storage to create an XP disc which can handle the AHCI controller on this board, with no success. I see there are many Intel AHCI drivers in the pack (12.03) but apparently this one is too new to be included (?)

Link to driver downloads

According to the files included in the F6 Floppy archivefrom that site (iaAHCI.inf, iaStorA.inf - just going on the x86 for now as that's what I am using), the following HWIDs are used by this controller:

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2922&CC_0104.DeviceDesc = "Intel(R) C600 Series Chipset SATA RAID Controller" 
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2826&CC_0104.DeviceDesc = "Intel(R) C600 Series Chipset SATA RAID Controller" 
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1D02&CC_0106.DeviceDesc = "Intel(R) C600 Series Chipset SATA AHCI Controller" 

I searched the txtsetup.sif file for these lines and I'm fairly sure they're not there, as booting in IDE emulation mode goes with no trouble, but in AHCI mode it's BSOD 0x7B without fail.

Thanks in advance.

Re: MSI H61M-E33 board - Intel C600 AHCI controller?

Can you post the HWID list from that target system (use the tool linked in my signature)?  I'm sure that the system doesn't contain all 3 HWIDs you posted, but only one.  I need to know which one is in your system.
Odd that MSI links to an older version of the RST drivers.  Maybe I need to reshuffle the HWIDs again.

Re: MSI H61M-E33 board - Intel C600 AHCI controller?

Ok, here is the HWID list from the system. This has obviously been installed with the controller in IDE mode but presumably there is a correlation between the IDE-mode HWID and the AHCI-mode HWID...

Re: MSI H61M-E33 board - Intel C600 AHCI controller?

Do NOT restart until the first 3 steps below are finished.
1) Install the full Intel chipset drivers from here: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_ … p;lang=eng
2) Install the full Intel RST drivers from here: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_ … p;lang=eng
3) Follow the instructions here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976
3.1) This will change the registry settings to allow boot to AHCI/RAID once the BIOS change is completed.
4) Restart and enter BIOS.
5) Change drive controller BIOS setting from IDE (legacy) to AHCI or RAID (your choice).
6) Restart and enter OS.
7) Run HWID tool to extract full HWID list and repost here.

Re: MSI H61M-E33 board - Intel C600 AHCI controller?

Intel chipset setup proceeds fine

RST installation fails with "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software."

Re: MSI H61M-E33 board - Intel C600 AHCI controller?

Latest I've heard is that Intel has released RST 11.6.0.1030 - is at their download site (sorry I don't have link handy).
