None of this needs to happen, if Microsoft acts responsibly to avoid harming the masses. Microsoft may be recommending the wrong driver to its customers. I suppose it keeps the computer repair guys in business. Refer to the motherboard User Guide page for more details. Then why not report the problem directly to Microsoft instead of posting in a peer-to-peer forum? My external drive running through an E-Sata port, however, became very problematic and I could not access it until I rolled back to the previous driver. Wednesday, May 4, 3:

I need more space. I have everything up to date – bios, firmware, drivers, OS, etc. Then why not report the problem directly to Microsoft instead of posting in a peer-to-peer forum? Remove From My Forums. It took me 5 installs and updates before I didn’t select the options Of course it was a disaster.

Long live OpenSource computing!!

[ubuntu] SATA RAID with Marvell controller on Asus board

I just checked the Marvell Support web site. Windows 7 Hardware Compatibility. The drivers from the Windows Update are supplied by the manufacturer. Your ISCI primary hard drive informs your system it is ready; but, your other drives and misc hardware replies to queries from your system by protocol responses “almost 61cx, just another sec”.

Microsoft needs to remove this driver from the Windows Update until a fix is provided. I have the exact same issue.

Marvell Semiconductor (Was: Galileo Technology Ltd)

It wouldn’t let me boot into safemode or anything else. Once the drive was removed the system booted fine. Tuesday, June 7, 2: We will forward your feedback to our related teams. I’ve margell, to no avail.

I suppose it keeps the computer repair guys in business. As I had a critical need for the external storage, disconnecting it was not an option.

They are not written by Microsoft.

Microsoft receives the updated drivers from Marvell since Microsoft does not write any third party drivers. Rolling back to the older 1.

WARNING: Latest Marvel 61xx RAID driver () from Windows Update BAD!!!!

It is very helpful to have someone else confirm what I guessed was the problem. I had taken several updates including SP1 and wasn’t sure initially what had mavrell the problem. Before you say it, yes you can stop the automatic part, but many users do not have the knowledge, ability or desire to screen their drivers and just trust Microsoft.

I have looked all over the internet to get a solution.
