Can't clear missing device "PCI Memory Controller" on ML10V2

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of installing WSE 2016 on a new ML10V2 and have one item in the device list that I cannot seem to find a driver for. I actually had two but was able to clear one of them by installing the ILO drivers from the HP site. The device in question is labeled "PCI Memory Controller" and shows up under "Other". Just to see if it was WSE 2016, I installed a fresh copy of WSE12R2 and had exactly the same situation. I configured the box with an HP hot swap drive cage (replacing the stock cage) and a P410 Smart Array controller (256MB w/ BBWC). I also installed the latest 2016 SPP but that made no difference. One thing I did was to disable the on board B120i SAS controller as I'm running all my drives off of the P410. I haven't seen any problems with this error but I would like to get it cleared at some point in time.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Since no one offered up an answer, I kept digging and here's what I found that solved it. Although I had disabled the B120i SAS Controller since I was not going to use it, I did not change the option in the BIOS that specifies what that SATA controller will be used for (Legacy SATA, ACHI SATA, SATA RAID). The option was set to RAID but when I changed it to ACHI SATA the "PCI Memory Controller" device error disappeared. I found this clue on an HP forum where someone suggested to another user's query that disabling the onboard RAID controller might be causing the problem. Although this was the essence of the problem the real fix was configuring the BIOS to use the onboard SATA as a basic ACHI SATA service and not as a RAID controller which apparently was in conflict with having the B120i disabled.
