    will Intel Rapid Storage Tchnology Driver do not issue RESET command after Firmware Download?




      when performing 'Download Firmware (-0x92)' on a SATA SSD with Intel Rapid Storage Technology Drivers and IMSM drivers, it is observed that firmware updates successfully but it does not issue RESET command, hence not able to see new firmware version in identify device buffer. Also Analyzed using the SATA Analyzer.


      The same(Download Firmware) is verified using Windows Atapi.sys driver and its working as per the expectation - once firmware download is done, the new firmware version is updated in identify device buffer.


      As per the ATA spec once the Firmware is updated, the Host Controller should send RESET command.



      Looking forward for Reply in sometime.



      Thanks in Advance.
