today i updated my onboard Marvell 91xx Ahci/Raid Controller drivers (ASUS P8P67 EVO REV 3) to the newest version

the drivers can be found at the bottom under

Marvell MV-91xx (88SE91xx) Ahci/Raid Controller

(PCI\VEN_1B4B&DEV_90xx&CC_ & PCI\VEN_1B4B&DEV_91xx&CC_)

Drivers Version & WHQL New 07/03/11

@ http://www.station-drivers.com/page/marvell.htm

After that, the 2 hard drives connected to that controller are not recognized anymore, which results in lack of support using the windows sidebar feature to read out hdd temperatures. i guess this is not really a bug, but AIDA needs an update to recognize the drives again?

with the old drivers from the motherboard download page it worked fine. (v1.0.0.1045)

i am using windows 7 enterprise SP1 x64 german edition

Thank you. We'll do some test runs with both Marvell driver packages on a 88SE91xx controller. Once we have an AIDA64 release with the explained issue fixed, I'll report back in this topic. But please provide us at least a week, since currently we're very busy preparing for the next major update for AIDA64.

Thank you. We've tried to tweak it a bit in v1.80.1450, but apparently it didn't work out. We've also done some test runs on a 88SE91xx controller, but it seems our test motherboard is not affected by the issue you experience on your system. We'll try to get another motherboard with a Marvell controller, and hopefully it will be suitable to replicate the issue.

BTW, do you have the option RAID SMART support enabled in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Stability? You may need that to enable AIDA64 to recognize the drives you have connected to a RAID controller.

wow, that fixed it. it was deactivated. however, with former drivers it worked without activating it, so i don't know if this shouldn't be adressed either way?

thanks for now

Thanks for the feedback. It seems, lately RAID controller manufacturers are revamping their drivers to make them work in RAID mode even when only standalone drives are connected. Or, at least the drivers stop providing the usual Windows API interfaces for standalone drives enumeration. Hence you need to activate RAID SMART support with those drivers to let AIDA64 scan RAID controllers using RAID methods either.
