#19 closed enhancement (fixed)

Need /i to work for only specific ports

As far as I can guess, my disks are all on 1 adapter.
I need to 'ignore' 2 of those, as they run in BIOS (software)
RAID mode, which eCS doesn't understand.

Please make /i work for specific ports too.

Any progress ?

Too dangerous to try to install new eCS without this option !

What exactly is the problem you are seeing? I need more information, logs, etc.

I have 3 disks in this laptop. The first 2 runs in BIOS RAID 0, and as such
can't be used by eCS (no driver).
If I should install eCS, it has to be on disk 3.
LVM however tends to write a new MBR to disk 1, and AiRBoot can only
be installed to disk 1. Both of these will destroy my raid.
Therefore I need for AHCI driver to make it possible to /Ignore the
2 first ports. Danis have an option for this. AHCI driver have an option
to Ignore an adaptor, but misses the option to ignore specific ports.

All I need is that the /Ignore switch also can be used for specific ports.

Ok, this makes much more sense than your initial description.

This is fairly easy to implement. The result will be that the non-ignored ports are the only disks that will show up in the system. The ignored ports will not be visible or usable at all. I assume this is exactly what you want.

Precisely what I need, so no component in eCS can accidentally destroy
the RAID :-)

As a side note, ticket #18 was created at same time as this ticket,
as I need the information from AHCI driver, which disks it thinks
are on which ports. It is not always what you think it is.
(I know it now outputs something - but I haven't checked, if it
gives this information, yet)
