    The device, \Device\Ide\iaStor0, did not respond within the timeout period.


      What is making this error? Using the latest driver on an ICH9R controller with Asus P5K-E motherboard. Windows 7 x64 PRO. The boot drive is an Intel X25-M 80GB and two data drives are WD20EARS 2TB. What is up? Errors all over the internet and nobody is talking about this here?

          I found the solution, why is this not posted everywhere with so many people having issues with it?


          I can confirm that any motherboard using the onboard Marvell Yukon 88E8056 will have stability problems unless it is updated to REV 14. You're not crazy. This is the correct fix. Download the following file and from DOS run the included eep.bat file. Enjoy the new stability.


          Read install notes below, work for other brand boards:




          This 88E8056 firmware update (an option ROM) will correct the following issues:

          • "The device, \Device\Ide\iaStor0, did not respond within the timeout period."
          • CDROM DVD showing up missing.
          • Server service hang.
          • Hard disk activity light staying on.
          • System and hard drive hang.


          Flashing the 88E8056.
          * Download the faq_marvell_eeprom.zip file.
          * Uninstall the driver using device manager in windows.
          * Boot into dos.
          * run the eep.bat file.
          * Boot into windows and install the latest Marvell Driver which is currenly (listed as yk62x64_v11.30.1.3 at marvell.com).
          * Install the latest Intel storage driver which is currenlty (listed as Intel Matrix Storage Manager dated 12/15/2010). If you're using ICH9R (ICH7R, ICH8R, etc) onboard raid you should download the RST version.
          * Optional: If you're using SSD drives you should update the BIOS Option rom for the ICH*R series to whatever your mother can support. For the ICH9R series this is To do this you may need to have someone make a custom BIOS mod for you. Ask them if they can included the updated Marvell rom to help some other poor soul.
