    How to manage 2 Marvell RAID PCIe cards during boot?


    I installed Marvell RAID PCIe SATA card and could manage to enter Marvell configuration utility using Ctrl + M.

    I installed 2nd card and I can see it in Windows using Marvell software and I created RAID successfully..

    But I want to rid of this software (it installs loads of things I don't need (Apache, PHP, a website etc)

    I tried Ctrl + M again and it only shows Card 0.

    How do I manage second card in Marvell Configuration Utility during boot?

    :)

  2. Mounting Raid 0 drives at boot up

    Installed windows 10 (actually upgraded from windows 7). Very first boot and all subsequent reboots, the system does not mount a Marvel Raid 0 drive. Drive is installed in the PC (not usb external). Reads other external and internal drives, including the
    boot drive. BUT when I go to the Device Manager and right click on Disk Drives and choose SCAN FOR CHANGES, it finds the drive and everything is back to normal. Also I can see the Marvel Raid mounting during the bios check during boot….as well as the other
    drives.



    Any idea on how to make this mount at boot?

    Intel Intel X58/ICH10R chipset not supported with upgrade from WIndows 7

    I have an ASUS Rampage Formula III motherboard with following controllers:

    Intel® ICH10R controller :

    6 x SATA 3Gb/s port(s), gray

    Support Raid 0, 1, 5, 10

    JMicron® JMB363 controller :

    1 x eSATA 3Gb/s port(s), red

    1 x Power eSATA 3Gb/s port(s), green

    Marvell® PCIe 9128 controller : *1

    2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), red

    Windows 10 did not recognize my RAID 0 array on the Intel controller or my Blu Ray drive. I had to install an older Intel RAPID RAID driver set from what Windows 10 defaults to. Just in case anyone else is having the same problem.

  4. How to manage 2 Marvell RAID PCIe cards during boot?

    Sorry and it is likely just me.

    When you say you installed a Marvell Raid PCIe Sata card is this just the Marvell RAID card and then you attach your storage to this or is there SSD storage built into card.

    When I search this term I get two cards but each has ports for drives to be connected too.

    I then read your comment that you installed a second card which has me thinking this is actual storage.

    If you could help me understand are these actual storage devices or cards to add ports and functionality.

    I have 2 pcie sata cards with 2 x 2 hdd connected (2 each). The cards are sata controllers. Not a storage..

  6. Thanks. Are you sure that the BIOS detects even one, not to challenge you. The CRTL M, as I understand it, for your board is for the Marvell built in controller.

    When you see the BIOS messages as you boot can you confirm they are the drives on your cards?

    Ctrl M is for any marvell. When I ctrl m I can see one card only.

    But inside windows I can see both cards using marvell software. And I can use both raids. They are perfectly functional.

    What i want is to rid of windows marvell soft and use ctrl m marvel configuration utility during boot only.

    That's the point of this post

    Thanks

    I wonder if this is a BIOS detection issue. CRTL M should be showing you all three controllers as I'm very sure there is one on your board. Not sure if you've customized your BIOS much, if so this idea maybe a non starter.

    My thought would be to remove the CMOS battery, wait 20 secs, install and enter BIOS, load defaults, then customize. On mine I have it set to show what it detects as part of the boot, screen flashes, shows drives, then Intel controller.

    It may even need the built in one enabled so it can see all. (This is a guess.)

    Changing BIOS settings on working system is obviously your call.

    I went looking for technical docs on their bios process but that was a bust.

    No mate, nothing like that. First of all the mb has no Marvell on it. The primary on-board controller is Intel and the secondary is Asmedia (as in ass-media, because it cant handle neither CD ROM nor RAIDs - totally useless).

    Second - if I disable the Marvell cards in BIOS anyhow, they wont work. Yet they do work marvelously *Wink both of them

    I just cannot see them both in the utility.

  10. Wow. I mixed you up with someone else. I thought we had the same motherboard strain, Asus P8P67, mine being deluxe rev 3.1. It has the marvell on board. My board also won't boot from CD unless I connect via USB.

    Sounds like there is a limitation is software. Are these right from Marvell or are they from a computer vendor, like say Vantec or MSI. The reason I ask as they might be the next logical place to ask, especially about unpublished limitations.

    I went to Marvell.com and could click on Support but then they start up with having an Non Disclosure Agreement with them. I did find some technical documentation on a chip but it was 2009 vintage.

    Could be the bios can only cope with one add-on controller as using the same resources? I'm guessing here that only the one cards drives are showing during the Post? and ctrl M is only ever going to access the one card.
    May have done better with a 4 port Card.
