Installing the SDI Card Driver

The SDI Card Driver is installed on the image so that BMSs can have EVS disks attached and can start from EVS disks, which enables quick BMS provisioning.

If you do not need EVS or the BMS does not have an SDI card, you can skip this section.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. Obtain the device manager devcon.exe from the WDK directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Tools\x64 and place devcon.exe in the same directory as the SDI card driver.

  2. Locate the EpScsiAdaper installation information file and obtain the PCI ID.

  3. Open the command-line interface (CLI), switch to the directory where the SDI card driver and installation tool are stored, and run the following command:

    devcon install EpScsiAdapter.inf  "PCI\VEN_19E5&DEV_1610&SUBSYS_000119E5"

    Use the actual PCI ID.

  4. (Optional) Delete device nodes.
    1. If the environment where you create an image does not have SDI card hardware, the storage controller in the device manager has exceptions.

    2. Open the CLI, switch to the directory where the SDI driver and devcon are stored, and delete abnormal device nodes.

      Run the devcon.exe find "PCI\VEN_19E5*" command to locate abnormal device nodes.

      Run the devcon.exe remove "@ROOT\SCSIADAPTER\0000" command to delete the nodes.

    3. Restart the OS.

    4. Check whether the exceptions in the storage controller are cleared.
