Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7.

  • You attach a disk that is more than 128 GB to the computer through an IDE port or a SATA port.

    Note The SATA port is configured to use IDE emulation.

  • You create a partition on the disk. Some disk offset ranges on the partition are larger than 128 GB.

In this scenario, data corruption occurs on the disk when you try to write data to the partition.

Notes

  • This issue occurs when an ICH8 or ICH9-based source bridge chipset is installed on the affected computer.

  • If you view a trace log that is generated by an IDE bus analyzer or a SATA analyzer, you find that the error occurs when a retried write operation occurs.

Cause

This problem occurs because of an error in the IDE port driver. When the IDE port driver retries a write operation to a disk offset that is larger than 128 GB, the IDE port driver incorrectly truncates the target offset. This causes the related data to be written at the wrong location. Therefore, data corruption occurs.

Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 file information notes


Important Windows 7 hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 R2 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, hotfixes on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.

  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows Server 2008 R2 and for Windows 7" section. MUM and MANIFEST files, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are extremely important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
