I want to run Smartctl under WinPE v2 but it doesn't work on SATA
drives, only IDE drives.
WinPE v2 is the new 'test environment'=20
I have included the WinASPI.dll but it still does not work - I get 'Get
strange 0xe400 from GetASPI32SupportInfo()'
Any ideas why?

The SATA controller probably uses a (SCSI class) driver without SMART
Please post the output of "smartctl -i -r ioctl,2 /dev/hdX" for the SATA

The WNASPI32.DLL from Adaptec's ASPI package depends on an installed
ASPI32.SYS device driver.
Install it with "install.bat XP32" from the driver package.
As an alternative, it may be possible to use a self-contained
WNASPI32.DLL like Nero ASPI Manager.
But both would only help for SCSI drives, not for SATA drives.
