1. OEM Name: LSI

2. Product Name: MegaRAID Windows NT 4.0 Driver (Mraid35x.sys)

3. Release Date: 10/04/2002

4. New Version Release: 4.10

5. Previous Version Release: 4.09
Version: 4.10
=============

Bug Fix:
-------
1. Utilities are issuing 0xc3 calls for getting the logical drive statistics.
We have seen some utilities are requesting 40LD statistics but send buffer
less than 40LD statistics size. This is causing the system to crash.
This bug has been fixed in the driver by returning all the calls with less
buffer size (< 40LD statistics size) without copying any data successfully.
Version: 4.09
=============

Enhancements:
-------------
1. Support added for 520 and 518 controllers.


Known Restrictions/Bugs:

1. Performance will degrade if NT service pack 5 or higher is not installed.
Installation Procedure:
----------------------
1. To install the MegaRAID driver during installation of NT from floppy diskettes, select S at the
appropriate time to select the MegaRAID driver on diskette.
2. If installing NT from a bootable CD (IDE or non-MegaRAID SCSI), press the F6 key when the following
message is displayed:

"Setup is inspecting your computers' hardware configuration."
Then select S at the appropriate time and select the MegaRAID driver on diskette.
Driver Installation Upgrade:
----------------------------
1. To install the MegaRAID driver on an existing NT configuration, select the SCSI Adapters in the NT
Control Panel.
2. Select the Driver tab and select the Add button.
3. Any previously installed MegaRAID Drivers should be removed prior to installing a new one. Select the
Remove button to remove the driver.

Determining the version number of the MegaRAID driver
=====================================================
To display the version number of the MegaRAID driver you are currently using, do the following:
- Bring up the Windows Explorer
- Under View-Options, make sure Show all files is selected
- Go to the \WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS folder and find either MEGARAID.SYS or MRAID35X.SYS
or EXPLORER.SYS.
- Right click on the file and select Properties.
- Select the Version tab to see the version number

If both MegaRAID.SYS and MRAID35X.SYS files are present, determine which one is currently started by doing the following:
- Go to the NT Control Panel and Select SCSI Adapters
- Highlight the MegaRAID Adapter and select Properties
- The driver name is listed under the Driver tab

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Reason for Release (including Bug Fixes and Enhancements and Feature added)
Driver Bug Fixes/Enhancements:
=============================

Bugs Fixed:
----------

1. The 471/493 controllers used to have the DEC Bridge support. Now on some of the new 471/493
controllers we have started using the PeriCom PCI Bridge support. This support has been added
in the driver for the scanning of the new PeriCom PCI Bridge.

2. For the 531 controllers, the system would hang when the system was entering into the hibernation
state. This was fixed.

3. During back to back write configurations, the firmware would hang. This was fixed.

4. The driver was fixed to ensure that the Norton AntiVirus utility would send READ/WRITE requests
beyond the logical drive size.

5. When writing a configuration, the driver was not checking to see if there were any pending
commands left on the logical drives and this was resulting in data loss. This was fixed.

6. Driver was not updating some of its internal structures whenever GAM was sending a WriteConfig/ReadConfig
call to the driver. This driver was fixed to send the correct information to the GAM utility.

7. There was an AdapterFlush issue which was causing performance issues. This was fixed.

LSI Logic MegaRAID Driver Release (BETA ONLY)

************************************************
1. OEM Name: LSI

2. Product Name: MegaRAID Windows 2003 Driver (MRaid35x.sys)

3. Release Date: 05/23/2003

4. New Version Release: 6.32.2.64

5. Previous Version Release: 6.31

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Reason for Release (including Bug Fixes and Enhancements and Feature added)
Version 6.32:
============

Bugs Fixed:
----------

1) Firmware was not able to handle multiple reserve commands for a logical drive. This was leading
to the reservation failures on some of the logical drives. A fix has been done in the driver where in
the driver would accept only one Reservation call at a time and would allow it to complete before
issuing any more commands to the Firmware.
Enhancements:
------------

1) File Version have been modified to reflect the Product version from this release onwards.

2) Support for SATA 150-4 controllers has been added to the setup files.

Version 6.31:
============

Bugs Fixed:
----------
1) During Cluster HCT phase 5 test driver and firmware used to wait each other for command
completion and interrupt post acknowledgment respectively. This leads to dead lock and
HCT test fails with IO timeout error. This has been fixed.

2) When heavy I/O are running, miniport driver often gets mailbox busy this was leading to
I/O hangs, in this case driver waits for busy to become free. This has been fixed.

3) Logical drive status checking was failing for Dummy Device inquiry. This has been fixed.

4) Capability pointer changed in Firmware for Fast READ/WRITE calls for hard disk connected to
SCSI Channels.
Enhancements:
------------
1) Support for SATA 150-6, 320-2X and 4X controllers added to the setup files.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Known Restrictions/Bugs:
================
1) Driver is using Hal functions to program Hierarchy Bridges and SCSI Chips when system goes to D3 Standby state.
In case of D3 Standby there is no controller BIOS scan that programs these transparent Hierarchy Bridges and
SCSI Chips for our ATU (i960) where our firmware resides.

In order to pass Window Logo test we are disabling Hal functions from our Miniport Driver.
