Customer cannot install the test client package for GE 9.5.3 SP4 as a serverless client which would fix the issue, due to company restriction policies. Also they do not want to  upgrade the GE Manager Server to 9.5.3 SP4, create msi files and then upgrade the GE clients.


Unsupported Storage Controller


GE Manager Server and GE clients with GE 9.5.3 installed on them.


The present hard disk controller mode was set to ATA on the Dell Latitude E6520, which is not a supported hard disk controller mode in GE 9.5.3 version.


Re-image the Dell Latitude E6520 with AHCI Hard Disk Controller mode and then install GE 9.5.3 on it. 

Reboot the system and now the error 'Unsupported Storage Controller' would not appear.
