    Intel Rapid Storage Driver




      Building a new multi-platform image and cannot get the to install automatically. I used DISM to inject the driver and confirmed it is in the C:\Windows\Inf folder. However, Windows 7 defaults to the version. I can manually install it if I force the issue and point it directly to the driver, but it won't recognize the newer driver if I have it search automatically. Need it to be able to find and install it on its own after the image is laid down. Anybody else seeing this or have any ideas for a resolution?

          Update: I have verified that the version of the driver is getting installed from the Chipset install package. If I remove that from the picture and it defaults to the 6.1.7601.17514 generic 2006 Windows version of the driver, I still can't get it to automatically find the 11.20.1006 install. Very odd.

            I think I have found what our issue is and why I can only get this driver to install manually.


            Here is the Hardware ID information in the iaStor.inf file of the Intel Rapid Storage Driver:


            %PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C3&CC_0104.DeviceDesc% = iaStor_Install, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C3&CC_0104

            %PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C6&CC_0104.DeviceDesc% = iaStor_Install, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C6&CC_0104

            %PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2822&CC_0104.DeviceDesc% = iaStor_Install, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2822&CC_0104

            %PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_282A&CC_0104.DeviceDesc% = iaStor_Install, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_282A&CC_0104


            Here is the Hardware ID information of the SATA AHCI controller on a Lenovo T430s:







            They don’t match. Anyone else have a machine that is using the IRST install that can check the Hardware ID of their controller?

              Look in the iaAHCI.inf from the same package, DEV_1E03 is found there.

                Thank you Gize!!! That pointed me right to my issue. I had injected the iaStor.inf file, but not the iaAHCI.inf and this why PNP was not working. iaStor did not have the correct hardware ID, but iaStor did.
