Trying to Upgrade to Storemi 2.0

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, I am trying to upgrade to Storemi to 2.0.

Fast drive SSD

data HDD

So you cannot just upgrade to 2.0 you have to remove the old version first.


So i have removed the Fast media drive using storemi which converts the tier HDD into Single mode.

Now the HDD is still a virtual drive, from what I have read I have to copy all data off the HDD and then delete the tier which will remove the virtual drive then copy over the data again. Then i can uninstall Storemi and then be able to install Storemi 2.


Has anyone else gone through this? am i doing it right?

Not really helpful, but personally if I was doing anything like that, I'd do it properly: back up all data to another location, wipe everything, start fresh, bring the data back over.

Ok drives are now free, now the new storemi uses StoreMI Bottom Device Storage Controller instead of AMD Virtualized AHCI controller for Ryzen 400 series (if using the 400 series motherboard).


"The AMD StoreMI 2.x installation adds Storage Controllers seen under the Windows Device Manager. You can expect to see a “StoreMI Bottom Device” and “StoreMI Controller [storport]” for each installed hard disk and SSD storage device. Do not delete or modify these storage controllers. Each will be deleted if StoreMI is uninstalled and after rebooting."

however the installer is not installing the new Controller driver,

if you set the AHCI controller to AMD Virtualized AHCI controller for Ryzen 400 series then if prompts you to first uninstall the old store mi
if you set it to standard SATA AHCI Controller it prompts "storemı is unable to Support this motherboard's SATA Source HDD and SATA cache and SSD attachment. Using an NVMe SSD for the cache is supported"


So guess i need to workout how to install this StoreMI Bottom Device and StoreMI Controller [storport] ?

Have post a support question https://community.amd.com/message/2995078
