Hi everyone,

I hope somebody could help me shed some light on an annoying issue I currently have.

After a recent bios update (that or recent win 10 update) I have lost 4 of my SATA ports with only two others functional. The HDDs connected to the non functional SATA ports are detected in the bios.

On further inspection in device manager (please see attached link), the drivers are not installed for the SATA controllers. However, whenever I attempt to update and/or reinstall the driver the following error occurs - "AMD Virtualized AHCI Controller for StoreMI DEV_7901". I cannot seem to find a way round the issue.

I have previously installed the StoreMI program but never created a tier if this is relevant. All MSI other drivers have been updated.


Many thanks in advance.

Hi,

Thanks for your response.

I have finally sorted it by amending the "device installation restrictions" in gpedit.

The process is as follows...Start > Run, type in gpedit.msc and press OK. Go to Computer Configuration > Administrative templates > System > Device Installation > Device Installation Restrictions.

In here are loads of different settings which apply to installation of new devices, make sure they are all set to "not configured" apart from the very first one which says "Allow administrators to override restrictions".

All my HDDs have reappeared.

Thanks.
