@akash9:
Welcome to the Win-RAID Forum!
To whom did you address your post?

Zitat von akash9 im Beitrag #871
I would download the most recent form of the drivers from Intel's webpage for use amid establishment and introduce the AHCI driver physically and check whether it will take.
Intel's AHCI drivers will not work with Marvell or ASMedia SATA Controllers.
Zitat von akash9 im Beitrag #871
I presume you're utilizing the non specific Microsoft Marvell drivers.
The SATA AHCI Controllers can only use either the generic MS AHCI driver or the specific AHCI driver, which has been released by the manufacturer of the Controller. There are no "Microsoft Marvell drivers".

@Fernando,
About MS native W10 x64 RS3 NVMe driver I observe different version number on my PC such as:




Is it normal ?
What is the proper identification version (.15 or .98) ?

#873 RE: Recommended AHCI/RAID and NVMe Drivers by Vasudev 11.12.2017 11:57

@100PIER:
Usually they bump the version numbers to coincide with their OS updates. If they release a new update say 104, You might observe the sys and inf would sometimes be updated to that build 104 or sometimes it shows old version. Are you seeing degraded performance after the update?

@Vasudev
I have not observed significant performance difference for native MS NVMe driver when upgrading W10 from RS2 to RS3.

@100PIER:
Vasudev is right.
The Device Manager just shows, what it sees within the related INF file (bad example: Intel's Chipset Device INF files), but doesn't look into the code of the related real driver (= *.SYS file).

Consequences:
1. The driver (= *.SYS file) may be updated, but this cannot be detected by looking into the Device Manager.
2. If you want to know, whether the code of the driver itself (= *.SYS file) has been silently updated, you have to compare the different versions of the *.SYS file by using an Hex Editor.

Hi all, new to this forum. I have a question regarding the Samsung NVMe drivers for Windows 7 (in this case, 64bit) found by reference on the first page of this forum. The file available for download there, is password protected at the archive (RAR) level. Is there some way to obtain this file, which seems to be held in an absurd shell game of 'hide the pea' on the Internet; and I cannot find anywhere unbundled in a form accessible to a new Widows OS build?

It should be obvious that merely running the Samsung utility; whatever its name may supposedly be; on an existing installed instance of Windows, does not enable the presence of this NVMe driver in a NEW installation. Thank you very much for your attention here.

None of the downloadable *.RAR files, which are offered within this Forum, is password protected, but you have to use an unzip tool, which supports the WinRAR v5 compression method.
What is your problem and which message did you get?

Well, this is a pleasant surprise; I had not expected such a quick reply. I have screenshots (4) of my latest attempt just now, to gain access to this specific file; as downloaded from a link provided earlier in the forum; showing that the file is, indeed, password protected. PeaZip handles RAR files well and I have never had a problem with RAR files from any source. If that would be a possible problem, then please verify this as a potential conflict.

By the way, regarding an earlier topic found explicated in forums on your site here, about two years ago; I never was able to get C60x/X79 ACHI working in Windows XP Professional 64; it's too bad that UEFI didn't exist for official installations of that OS - the first built on an NT codebase (the 32-bit version was still Win98/ME thread, at the time) - and, contains most of the best of what Microsoft ever produced in any OS, with none of the user surveillance ("Spyware") aspects later and currently found in all Microsoft OSs starting with updates to Windows 7. Can you already tell, that it is still, my old favorite? ;-)

Also, I'm an old veteran of the OS Wars of the 1980's and fondly remember the Amiga as the best small computer system going; there even was a UNIX workstation version of the Amiga 3000; which the IBM PCs could never have even aspired to, let alone achieved. I also remember an earnest German-based enclave of Amiga users and supporters; as there was comparatively good internationalization compared to the Macs and PCs of those days.

if there is some way I can post the screenshots to you, then please let me know. Thanks again for your time and specific attention.

@tradewisdom:
Please give me the download link to the file, which you think is password protected, and the link to the post, where you found the link.

Successive screenshot crops of the process of trying to access this file archive, are attached.

#882 RE: Recommended AHCI/RAID and NVMe Drivers by tradewisdom 15.12.2017 00:02

As for the link involved, which I have just now copied as "Copy Link Location" through a right-button mouse click:

(e.g., ' >"pure" 64bit Samsung NVMe Driver v2.3.0.1709 WHQL for Win7 x64< ' )
http://www.smartredirect.de/redir/clickG...Me-Drivers.html

leading to the following URL:
https://mega.nz/#!BU8SwQgR!Ct6iQwwwTZIdM...k0Sj3TPA92vfOxQ

At which point, clicking on "Download" leads to the reception of the file archive "64bit Samsung NVMe drivers v2.3.0.1709 WHQL for Win7 x64.rar" described in my previous entries here, above.

@tradewisdom:
Thanks for the screenshots.
I just have downloaded and unzipped the related driverpack and didn't get any requests for a password or keyfile.
Maybe someone else can confirm it.

EDIT: When you copy and paste a link, you have to make sure, that you got the complete link. The Forum software shortens the link, when it is too long. Nevertheless it will work, if you double-click onto the link, but when you just copy the shortened link and insert it into your Url-address bar, you will get an error message.
As I already have written to you via PM: All MEGA links are encrypted, but the key for its decryption is within the link.

Just to be complete in my criticism, this is a screenshot of the 'mirror[[File:2017-12-15 15_47_14-Program Manager.jpg|none|auto]]' at OneDrive:

I am done with this useless dead end. Please try to discover the source of this insurmountable impediment, as I am sure I am not a mere unique 'corner case'.
Perhaps that can avoid such a frustrating experience for others in the future.
