Intel ICH9R contantly rebuilds mirror set on boot or restart Win7

[ Edited ]

Each time I boot or restart the XW4600, the ICH9R begins a verify, In Windows 7, Intel Matrix Storage Console, the Verifying and Repairing process runs for +45 minutes, completes with no detected errors. The Raid1 mirror set is flagged- good. If I restart Windows 7 the verify/rebuild process starts again.

How do I stop this from happening?

Re: Intel ICH9R contantly rebuilds mirror set on boot or restart Win7

Hello Mark,

Has this problem with the constantly rebuilding mirror set been solved?

We are facing a similar issue with an HP XW4600 Workstation, and as we only have a single one of this model, I cannot test too much to see what driver or firmware upgrade solves the issue?

I would be very glad to hear about your solution, if there is any.

Kind regards,

Attila:

It's been so long I don't remember, but I can tell you that it was not hardware and not firmware updates. I think it was based on a application that was installed that was not Win 7 compliant. The app loaded the ADSF service which as a problem for Win 7.

Basically the raid has been stable for months, including migrating through an upgrade from 500GB drives to 1.5TB drives.

I do used HP Softpaq Download Manager to keep the xw4600 updated with HP drivers.

Sorry I can't offer more info. Wish you better luck in getting a response from the forum.
