AMD storage controller in WinPE 3.0?

Discussion created by CSHokie05 on Jan 5, 2011

I'm working on creating a small program which is meant to be run in a WindowsPE 3.0 (Windows AIK) environment.  Part of the functionality requires interaction with the new Self Encrypting drives using the OPAL standard.

The drive is recognizable and usable in a full Windows 7 environment, but even adding that storage controller to the WinPE environment, the drive is not receiving the TRUSTED_RECEIVE and TRUSTED_SEND commands from the ATA spec.  From what I've been able to see, the storage device is showing up with a different ID in the WinPE environment, so the ID in the .inf for the storage controller isn't getting matched.

Is there an AMD storage controller available specifically for a WinPE 3.0 environment or for use with OPAL standard Self Encryption Drives?
