    iRST 11.6, Windows 8 x64, RAID1. Disk marked as "Verify" during reboot

    Alberto

      I see this strange behavior after installing iRST 11.6 on Windows 8 Pro x64.

      My storage is built up of two SATA HDDs in RAID1 configuration, and when I reboot my system, the RAID array is always maked as "Verify" without any suitable reason.

      I must wait for the complete verification of the array before starting to work, unless I click on "Cancel" (guessing that my array isn't really corrupted).

      Is this a bug in the iRST package/iastorV.sys driver?

      Is there a way to solve this?

       

      Thanks,

      Alberto

              Hello,

               

              As per the information you provided the option ROM (control I menu you see when the system boots during POST) in your system is using version 7.5.0.1017 which is quite out to date, and could be related to this behavior.

               

              I suggest that you check with your motherboard manufacturer for an updated version of this, which is usually updated through a BIOS update.

                Alberto

                Hello, and thanks for your answer.

                Unfortunately, the manufacturer hasn't been releasing a new BIOS version for my motherboard since 2009.

                I already contacted them for another kind of issue, but I got no answer.

                Do you think there's another way to solve that?

                 

                Thanks

                  Unfortunately, it seems that version 11.2 of iRST 11.2 isn't Windows 8 compatible.

                    I have the exact same problem with my configuration using latest drivers in Windows 8 x64, but Windows 7 x64 works fine.

                     

                    Here is my configuration:

                      I tried the those drivers and it seems better, but sometimes still gets into verify mode upon restarting the pc.  Also noticed that the raid array verify progress gets reset to 0% after restarting as well.
