Mounting VHD makes Sensor Panel disk temp disappear

Recommended Posts

1. Set up the SensorPanel and add the disk temperature to it. (I'm using my NVMe drive's sensor)

2. Open Disk Management in Windows and use Action -> Create VHD.

3. When created, it will automatically mount the disk, and the temperature widget will disappear.

It's possible those steps may not reproduce the problem, let me know and I will try to narrow it down more.

After VHD creation please right-click on the bottom status bar of AIDA64 main window --> Disk Debug --> SMART Dump. Copy-paste the full results into this topic, or attach the results as a TXT file to your post. You may need to enable status bar in AIDA64 / main menu / View first.

Also right-click on the bottom status bar of AIDA64 main window --> Disk Debug --> Disk Controllers Dump. Copy-paste the full results into this topic, or attach the results as a TXT file to your post.

Finally, right-click on the bottom status bar of AIDA64 main window --> Disk Debug --> RAID Dump. Copy-paste the full results into this topic, or attach the results as a TXT file to your post.


Thanks,
Fiery

Thank you for the tip about the dumps. After looking at them, I believe I know what the issue is.

When creating the VHD, it seems to set itself as the first device (ordinal A0001). I'm assuming this is how SensorPanel binds to the device, so with the VHD being set to the ordinal the Samsung SSD was, it breaks temperature display since VHDs obviously have no temperature.

Attached is a comparison, left is before VHD creation, right is after.

My theory appears correct. In aida64.ini, you can find this entry:

HWMonSPItem=<ID>THDD1</ID>

With the VHD mounted, if I re-add the SensorPanel item, this ini entry changes to THDD2.

So the number after THDD corresponds to ORD in the SMART dump.

Binding by ordinals won't cut it anymore, you should bind it my HDD serial, or something.
