Download and install the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK)
Run adksetup.exe. When you get to the part where you select the features you want to install, select Deployment Tools and Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE). We only need these components for this exercise.
Grab a copy of the Marvell 94xx SAS/SATA RAID Controller driver
On a DS6100, go to the directory C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository and copy the files in the folder with the name beginning with mvs94xx.inf_amd64. The four files in this folder contain the driver for the Marvell 94xx SAS/SATA RAID Controller which is used on the DS6100. Copy these files to C:\mvs94.xx.inf_amd64 on the computer you have Windows ADK installed.
Create the Windows PE image and bootable USB
To create a new Windows PE image for your DS6100 with the RAID controller driver injected, enter the following commands.
- copype amd64 C:\WinPE_amd64
- Dism /Mount-Image /ImageFile:C:\WinPE_amd64\media\sources\boot.wim /Index:1 /MountDir:C:\WinPE_amd64\mount
- Dism /Image:C:\WinPE_amd64\mount /Add-Driver /Driver:C:\mvs94xx.inf_amd64\mvs94xx.inf
- Dism /Unmount-Image /MountDir:C:\WinPE_amd64\mount /Commit
MakeWinPEMedia /ufd C:\WinPE_amd64 D:
Make sure you substitute 'D:' with the driver letter of your USB.
Boot the WD Sentinel DS6100 off the USB
Note: We've tried to boot the DS6100 using a NTFS formatted USB and have found that it doesn't work. FAT32 works best. You may also find that booting off the USB 2.0 ports work better as well.
