Intel MAS CLI - Windows PE compatibility

Hi guys,

 

since Intel cancelled the good old ISDCT tool which worked just fine under Windows PE, MAS doesn't unfortunately.


Are there any workarounds for this issue yet? (we use PE to update drive firmwares with isdct at the moment, but as firmwares progress this isn't useful anymore...)

 

Thanks!

Hello, @Markus_Boston.

 

Thank you for contacting Intel Community Support.

 

We received your thread regarding the use of Intel DCT and Intel MAS in Windows PE, I will be glad to assist you.

 

The tools are intended to be used post OS installation, I understand that you were able to use Intel DCT this way, and by checking the Intel MAS user guide I cannot find any indications of this being a possibility (taking also into consideration that you personally tested it).

- Intel MAS installation guide: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/30162/eng/Intel_Memory_And_Storage_Tool_Install_Guide-Public-342329...

 

Another option to perform the firmware update would be the Intel FUT, which requires the use of a USB device to boot and perform the firmware update.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns, I will follow up on February 2nd.

Hello, Markus_Boston.

 

This post is to follow up on your thread regarding Intel MAS.

 

We previously shared that the tolls are intended to be used post OS installation and also shared the option to perform the update via Intel FUT.

 

The thread will be closed right now since there has been no confirmation about further assistance being required, if you have any other questions or concerns, please open a new thread because this one will no longer be monitored for support, or contact us via one of the other contact methods (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/contact-support.html).

 

If you require any type of assistance from Intel in the future, you can always contact us back.

 

Best regards,
