    Can not enable Dynamic Storage Accelerator via CLI (14.8.0.1042)

    dpokrovsky

      Hello.

      In connection to this tread. I still can't solve the issue (BIOS updated since then, Windows updated since then, tried NUC 14.10.0.1016 driver and software, but no luck anyway).

      In short: I got i7-4770 on Z97, Windows 10 x64 1086.318, driver and software version of 14.8.0.1042. At some point Dynamic Storage Accelerator stopped working. Did a lot of messing with drivers trying to solve the issue but with no success.

      For now I got Dynamic Storage Accelerator enabled in BIOS, I got drivers and RST software installed. But Dynamic Storage Accelerator does not work.

       

      So I tried rst cli (in elevated cmd) in order to investigate the problem:

       

      K:\rstcli>rstcli64 -I

      --CONTROLLER INFORMATION--

      Name:            Intel Chipset SATA RAID Controller

      Type:            AHCI

      Supported RAID:  0,1,5,10

      Max Disks/Array: 6

      HW Information:

      Vendor ID:       0x8086

      Device ID:       0x2822

      HW Revision:     0

      Dynamic Storage Accelerator: Disabled

       

      than I did

       

      K:\rstcli>rstcli64 --dynamic-storage-accelerator true

      0

       

      it says executed successfully, but still got

      I also tried

       

      K:\rstcli>rstcli64 --dynamic-storage-accelerator false

      REQUEST_FAILED: Request is formatted correctly but failed to execute.

      Dynamic Storage Accelerator is already Disabled

      For some reason it thinks DSA is always off, no matter I force it to switch on.

       

      Why I can not enable DSA? What could be a problem? Is there anyway to solve it without a complete Windows reset/reinstall?

       

      Thanks anyone in advance.
