  • Windows 10, version 1709 Blade PCIe SS - not working the the "trick" like in 1703

    Hi,

    The workaorund for windows 1703 posted in previous post in this phorum is not working for 1709 windows version.

    Any chance you can look at it and try to make it work since no windows 10 driver.

    Such a blazing fast card (and expensive)...make no sense no driver...



    ---------------------------- No longer works ----------------------------------------
    ou will need the “Phoenix Blade PCIe SSD Driver r2321 (Windows 7, 8, 8.1)” from our product webpage. The download link is here:

    http://www.gskill.com/Download/Drive...iver_r2321.zip

    1. Remove Phoenix Blade from the PCIe slot on the motherboard.
    2. This should allow you to boot into Windows 10 Build 1703 with latest updates, if the PCIe SSD prevented you from booting into Windows before.
    3. After going into Windows, navigate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers
    4. Look for a file called “bldrv1241.sys” and delete it
    5. Shut down the system
    6. Install Phoenix Blade PCIe SSD back into the PCIe slot. Without the problematic driver, it should boot into Windows.
    7. Go to Device Manager, and look under “Storage controllers”. If it says “G.SKILL Phoenix Blade Controller” or “Comay SBC208 SCSI Controller” or anything similar to the ones above, right click on it and choose “Uninstall device”, and make sure to click the checkbox for “Delete the driver software for this device.” Wait for it to uninstall/delete, then right click and choose to “Scan for hardware changes”. Repeat this step #7 until you see an unrecognized device under “Other devices > Mass Storage Controller”.
    8. Right click the unrecognized “Mass Storage Controller” and choose to “Update driver”, then choose the bottom option to “Browse my computer for driver software”, and in the dialogue, navigate to the extracted downloaded folder %PhoenixBladeDriver_r2321%/Windows Pre-Install Drivers/win7_2008”. After selecting the “win7_2008” folder, click “OK” to install the Windows 7 driver.
    9. After installing the Windows 7 driver, reboot the system, and your Phoenix Blade PCIe SSD drive should be recognized now under the latest Windows Update on Windows 10.

    I'm also experiencing this issue. While the steps make the drive accessible, file access will inevitably result in a bluescreen almost immediately. Rolling back to a pre 1709 build will work for now, but that's not a long term solution.
