Trouble Loading Hp Mass Storage Drivers In WinPE

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm having trouble loading the mass storage controller drivers in PE. I ran the hp_winpe_customize.cmd command before making the disk. This batch file adds subdirectories to the system32 folder, and adds a [OemDriverParams] section to the winpeoem.sif file.

I checked to ensure the driver folders were created and contain files.

I checked the winpeoem.sif file to make sure the proper lines were added.

These are the lines added to the file:

[OemDriverParams]

OemDriverRoot=""

OemDriverDirs=cpqcissm, cpqcissm2, cpqcissm3, lsicsb6, megaide, megaide2, megaide3, symmpi

When I run devcon, none of the drivers from the sub-directories seem to be loaded.

For example the driver for this device is in one of the subdirectories:

PCI\VEN_0E11&DEV_B060&SUBSYS_40700E11&REV_02\2&647397D&0&20

Name: RAID Controller

No driver information available for device.

and this driver loaded but it looks like the default driver:

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1229&SUBSYS_B1340E11&REV_08\2&EBB567F&0&10

Name: HP NC3163 Fast Ethernet NIC

Driver installed from x:\i386\inf\oem1.inf [D101M.ndi]. 1 file(s) used by driver:

X:\i386\system32\DRIVERS\n100325.sys

I also tried putting the drivers for the 5300 controller on a floppy and hitting f6 during the boot process.

I was warned that that a Microsoft driver already exists for this device and I told it to install the new one anyway.

Still no dice. The strange thing is that I have access to the drives on that controller. I can use diskpart to manipulate them. I assume that this means that some driver is loaded, is that correct?

The main reason I need the driver to work correctly is that I'm trying to use WMI to list all of the SCSI controllers. When I attempt that I get nothing back.

Does anyone have an idea what I may be doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

-Jim

PE has a 5300 driver in the OS by default.

You must modify the txtsetup.sif file and include the new PNP values as well as replace the driver files that already exist before you burn your new image.

The winpeoem.sif method is for mass controller drivers that do not exist at all.

As an example... Here is the chunk I modified in my txtsetup.sif to see the new controllers.

PCI\VEN_0E11&DEV_B178&SUBSYS_40820E11 = "cpqcissm"

PCI\VEN_0E11&DEV_B178&SUBSYS_40830E11 = "cpqcissm"

PCI\VEN_0E11&DEV_B178&SUBSYS_40800E11 = "cpqcissm"

PCI\VEN_0E11&DEV_B178&SUBSYS_40830E11 = "cpqcissm"

PCI\VEN_0E11&DEV_0046&SUBSYS_409A0E11 = "cpqcissm"

PCI\VEN_0E11&DEV_0046&SUBSYS_409B0E11 = "cpqcissm"

PCI\VEN_0E11&DEV_0046&SUBSYS_409C0E11 = "cpqcissm"

PCI\VEN_0E11&DEV_0046&SUBSYS_40910E11 = "cpqcissm"

PCI\VEN_0E11&DEV_0046&SUBSYS_409D0E11 = "cpqcissm"

Without it.. you will never see a 6400 or 6i controller even if you replace the driver files.

Thanks Chris,

That seemed to work to a point. I can now see the driver when I do a "devcon drivernodes", but I still get the same results with "devcon driverfiles" and I still cannot get nothing back when I attempt enumerate the instances of the WMI win32_SCSIController class, which is my main problem. I need to be able to list all array controllers in the machine.

When I run devcon drivernodes within PE, I get this:

X:\i386\system32>devcon drivernodes *b060*

PCI\VEN_0E11&DEV_B060&SUBSYS_40700E11&REV_02\2&647397D&0&20

Name: RAID Controller

DriverNode #0:

Inf file is x:\i386\inf\cpqcissm.inf

Inf section is cpqcissm_Inst

Driver description is Smart Array 5300 Controller

Manufacturer name is Hewlett-Packard Company

Provider name is Hewlett-Packard Company

Driver date is 1/21/2004

Driver version is 5.60.0.32

Driver node rank is 1

Driver node flags are 00002244

Inf is digitally signed

1 matching device(s) found.

I ran devcon on the same server while running Server 2003 and I got the following results:

C:\>devcon driverfiles *b060*

PCI\VEN_0E11&DEV_B060&SUBSYS_40700E11&REV_02\2&647397D&0&20

Name: Smart Array 5300 Controller

Driver installed from c:\windows\inf\oem9.inf [cpqcissm_Inst]. 2 file(s) use

d by driver:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\cpqcissm.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cpqcissm.dll

1 matching device(s) found.

C:\>devcon drivernodes *b060*

PCI\VEN_0E11&DEV_B060&SUBSYS_40700E11&REV_02\2&647397D&0&20
