Storage Executive Support For P1

Storage Executive Support For P1

Just installed the CT 1000P1 SSD8 into my Dell XPS8910. Downloaded and ran the current version of Storage Executive to no avail. Apparently, it does not yet support the P1. Any word on when we might expect a new version that will support the P1?

Re: Storage Executive Support For P1

I've noticed the same thing on my Dell Inspiron 5842. I'm wondering if the Intel Rapid Storage software might be interfering, but it may just be that Storage Executive has a problem.

Re: Storage Executive Support For P1

It does already support the P1.  At least it can see mine in 3.60 64 bit.

 

I'm not sure where your IRST theory comes from (storage exec works with sata drives and IRST) but it is worth noting that if you have reason to suspect it that I don't have IRST installed on the Windows install with the P1...

Re: Storage Executive Support For P1

Do you have RAID activated?

Not on this install, no.  So it's using the MS sata driver.

 

On my previous install I had raid active and all my Crucial SSD's were seen by Storage Exec (none of them were in RAID arrays themselves)

Re: Storage Executive Support For P1

I disabled the Intel Rapid Storage software which made no difference. I then changed RAID in the BIOS to ACHI, but the machine wouldn't boot. I changed back to RAID. After booting, Storage Executive saw the drive, but couldn't access all of its information and reported that there was no supported drive for any of the Storage Executive functions. While this is a little better, it is still pretty useless and just taking up disk real estate.

I have no RAID arrays either.

Intel RST driver 14.8.0.1042, CSE 3.60.082018.04. I can see P1 in CSE, its health status a SMART information.

Re: Storage Executive Support For P1

Crucial Tech Support just got back with me and told me that it is RAID that interferes with Storage Executive seeing the P1. Turning off RAID is a bit tricky. Here is the way I handled it:

Open the command prompt as an administrator and enter the following command if you are running Win10 1803:
bcdedit /set (current) safeboot minimal
If you are running 1809 or the above doesn't work enter:
bcdedit /set safeboot minimal
Hit enter and exit command prompt
Reboot the machine and enter the BIOS setup
Change the RAID to ACHI in the SATA setting
Reboot and you will enter safe mode automatically
Open command prompt as administrator and enter:
bcdedit /deletevalue (current) safeboot
if that doesn't work or you are running 1809 enter:
bcdedit /deletevalue safeboot
Restart the machine

You should now be in your windows environment and Storage Executive will work.

Just noticed that my lysdexia has been kicking in on my messages here I keep typing ACHI when I mean AHCI.
