On my Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise system I have a bunch of hard drives. The disk mode is set to 'RAID' in bios and I have 2 disks set as RAID 1. I also have a couple of other disks without any raid to store other data.
On random occasions a certain drive (always the same one) disconnects with the following event entry:
The device, \Device\Ide\iaStor0, did not respond within the timeout period
I have the latest Intel Rapid Storage software, I tried disabling LPM, switching cable, switching sata port but without any results. Does anyone have another suggestion for me?
- Motherboard: Asus P8H67-M PRO
- Disk: Samsung HD154UI
EDIT Apparently this disk had a ATAPI standard instead of an ATA standard. So it might nog have supported all the AHCI functions. Enabling hotswap in the bios DID solve the problem (I think) but I have swapped the disk with an ATA one to get the system fully stable for sure.
