Q: RAID error?

I've never seen this before. It just popped up a bit ago on my W7 pc.



What does it mean? I hope its nothing bad.

Preferred Solution: RAID error?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I found this in a google search http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware/AMD-RAIDXpert-Warning-Errors/td-p/342708

I've known this pc has RAID on it because everytime it reboots/boots up it shows it. I've had this pc for two years this month & just hoping nothing bad is happening.

First time posting blush Situation I have two hard drives main drive Seagate GB w windows xp and second drive WD TB blank Without backing up the main drive ops i went ahead and enabled RAID on both drives and created a RAID volume KB strip Size TB GB NOTE the RAID volume size is only showing the exact space of the TB excluding the GB drive After realizing that I needed to create a backup image of my main drive to use RAID with an existing drive I m left with the quot Operating System Not Found quot message RAID volume disks deleting to RAID non-RAID issue - restore Question If I Delete RAID Volume which is based on the size from the blank TB drive will both drives become available as non-RAID disks and keep the original data on the GB main drive and be able to run windows again I m using software RAID through Intel Matrix Storage Manager option ROM v I understood that quot Resetting the drives to Non-Raid quot will cause all data on the disk to be lost so this isn t the approach that RAID issue - deleting RAID volume to restore non-RAID disks I ll be taking til I find a solution to backup my data However from reading the quot Delete RAID Volume quot option it listed Deleting a volume will destroy the volume data on the drive s and cause any member disks to become available as non-RAID disks so knowing that the RAID Volume is blank then maybe trying this will be the answer When using the Microsoft Recovery Console in RAID mode attached w both drives logically there isn t any directories files found At the moment I m seeing if I can find any data in the MR Console with RAID disabled and accessing only the main drive Just wondering if Knoppix or Data recovery softwares can backup the data Thanks to anyone taking the time to read my post nbsp

A:RAID issue - deleting RAID volume to restore non-RAID disks

sadly, there's no way to do what you want without an existing backup.

Look at it this way;
A disk has a container ~ the partition.
The partition as a structure ~ the filesystem (eg NTFS, FAT32, RAID).
We put our data into the structure.

When we create backups, we are getting only the data itself (unless you use an image program like Ghost or Acronis where you get all three).

Deleting the RAID will give back the two independent HDs, but also breaks the structure so that the data becomes in accessible.

A:no disks reserved for raid use Raid disabled - Raid 1

Do you have Windows on the drive now? How did you load the drivers? Drivers won't function without an operating system, so I'm a little confused about exactly what you did.

How did you run the setup utility? Does your machine support hardware RAID or are you using software RAID? Are there RAID settings in BIOS?

A:How to fix RAID error?

you are spot on; raid-0 is a nightmare and we try hard to discourage home users from using it.

*IF* you have the original OEM recovery disk, you can use it.

*IF* you have a retail CD, load it and perform a Clean Install

Either way, the installers will find, reformat and install a new OS.

A:RAID error!

The good thing is that the error doesn't prevent you from booting into Windows. Get an external (or internal, it'll be cheaper) drive big enough to hold all your data and backup everything asap. Use XXclone (guide here) or DriveImage.

A raid 0 array means the data is spread equally between 2 physical drives. This increases the reading and writing speeds but if one drive fails physically you'll lose all your data. A raid 1 array is recommended if your motherboard supports it, refer to the motherboard manual to learn more. Raid 1 uses double the space since all the data will be the same on both physical drives but it gives a little speed boost and ensures that any critical data you may have will be safe should one drive fail. No raid array at all is already safer than raid 0.

Once you've backed up your data run the diagnostic utility that corresponds to your drives' brand and model to identify the failing drive so you can replace it if needed. If it's a bad cluster then you can keep using the drive once it's been repaired by the diagnostic program or chkdsk. But if new bad clusters start to appear or if you get a physical failure imminent message you should replace the drive.

The odd files ONLY show up in the root of C:

They are always 0K in size.

I have a RAID5 array using four 320GB drives on a Silicon Image SiI 3114 RAID controller. Came into the room tonight to hear a click-of-death emanating from one of the drives. Figure, okay, no problem, we'll swap in another drive and rebuild the RAID... except after shutting down and restarting, one of the other drives now shows up as an 18GB ROM?!?!?!? Needless to say, I now have a broken RAID...

The drives were running a little hot, so I'm hoping after a cool-down, I'll at least get one back long enough to copy some critical stuff off the volume. Anyone have any other ideas? Anyone maybe familiar with this controller and why one drive might be showing up as the wrong type?? Anyone tried Runtime RAID Reconstructor; would it be effective in a situation like this?

 

A:RAID error... any ideas?

I have never used that controller [I use either promise or highpoint] however this site may have some help for you in getting data off of the single working drive.
http://www.runtime.org/ Download the raid reconsturctor and see if you can access the drive when you connect it to a working system.

FWIW this is why I always tell people that raid of any type is NOT a backup plan. You need to image the array on a regular basis and store the image on a NAS, external, network, etc. Raid5, raid1, or raid01 are hardware redundant only; it does nothing for a virus, malware, corrupted driver install, etc. Every error is mirrored.

Years ago I inherited a Dell XPS-720 running XP that came with an Nvidia Raid system that I really know nothing about. I never do a backup on that computer because I figured that I would be covered by the raid system if anything disastrous occurred.

1 DEGRADED NVIDIA MIRROR 698.63G

I have PDF manual for the raid system, which describes a way for rebuilding the arrays. My questions is - can I do this safely without damaging anything that currently exists on my hard drive?

A:RAID Unformatted Error - Please Help If Possible

there are several file recovery programs out there. Some are better than others. But a large hard drive with thousands of files can take a long time no matter what. Using linux/unix will not work with windows unless you have some sort of unix program that can access windows directories.

In te future always back up important files offline to a secondary storage device, especially when doing drastic changes. Adding ram should not require changes to BIOS. Read the updating ram guide in the guides forum.

When you tried to reconfigure the raid, you wiped out the boot and directory sectors. your data is still there, provided you didn't format or overwrite it.

Dell with 2 120Gb drives in running XP

I don't know much about RAID but I think it is the Mirror type

Wouldn't boot after 15 Updates apparently. Tried to do a Repair Reinstall, but seem to have a Dell Disc with XP Prof on it and not Home which the sticker says on the computer. Therefore it wouldn't do the repair.

Used a Linux disk to copy over a Restore Point from back in time to the Config folder in System32 - had trouble writing to one disk using this facility

Tried chkdsk /r using another XP setup disk and found no trouble - but which disk is this checking??????

I guess the mirror facility copies the main disk - how do I utilize the RAID facility to mend this darn thing assuming 1 disk might be OK ???

Hi,

I am attempting to install the software SATARaid5 from Silicon Image to run a ESata 3124 RAID controller, but at the end of the install, I get;

"An Error occurred while copying file SiWinAcc.sys. Cannot copy file to destination directory. Click Retry to retry the operation or click cancel to"

and the error message cuts off with the "retry" and "cancel" buttons below.

Of course, retry just pops up the same error message, BUT cancel brings up a box that asks, "do you want to continue setup without copying this file? and if you answer Yes, the installer finishes and proclaims success.

If you go check the directory, there the file is, but I am unsure it is uncorrupted, PLUS I cannot get this RAID driver to work properly.

A:Error When Installing RAID Drivers

There is a problem on your XP CD. Is this the disc for this original equipment manufacturer (OEM) computer or are you trying to load a disc from another computer? If the prior, then the disc is looking for specific hardware that this computer does not have (hence the OEM in the error). If this is a new motherboard, you shouldn't have to install SATA drivers anyways, they should be part of the bios.

I currently have 4*160 GB SATA drives in a Raid 0+1 array, MSI K8N Platinum SLI motherboard with an AMD 3500+ controller. My computer hung up and froze and when it rebooted there was a RAID error. 2 of the drives had errors and the array was degraded. I have been unable to find anything on how to resolve this short of reformatting everything or taking out a drive and replacing it.

Any suggestions? This is the second time this has happened. I thought the RAID 0+1 was supposed to be redundant and prevent these problems.

Thanks for any help.
 

A:Raid Array - Error and Degraded

As you probably know A RAID 0+1 array can consist of any number of hard disk drive members, as long as there is an even number of disks, minimum of four.

Also though if one disk is degraded no problem but if two disks are degraded you're stuck (minimum of 4 remember). RAID 0+1 allows for one disk failure without the loss of any data. When an array is degraded the data on the array is still available.

I'm not an expert at recovery but my limited knowledge tells me that if two of your drives have errors you will not be able to recover using the RAID 0+1 configuration. Hopefully someone will jump in here with a better background.

Hi Everyone I recently was asked to look at a server that was giving disk CRC read errors It is setup as a Virtual Machine VM ware server I was instructed to break the raid raid- perform a low-level format - CRC drive error RAID which died? on of the three Sata drives that were in the raid array and then recreate the raid reinstall Windows Server R and the VM ware images The instructions given to me to low-level format the drives should format around any bad sectors on the hard drive I did all of the above and now we still get the CRC error So it seems one of the drives needs to be replaced but I don t really want to have to buy new drives when only one is down CRC error on RAID - which drive died? Can anyone recommend a method or application that will allow me to establish what drive or drives have the problem Will a chkdisk command do it Thanks for any advice I realise whatever I use will take a fair whack of time Hunter nbsp

Dell with 2 120Gb drives in running XP

I don't know much about RAID but I think it is the Mirror type

Wouldn't boot after 15 Updates apparently. Tried to do a Repair Reinstall, but seem to have a Dell Disc with XP Prof on it and not Home which the sticker says on the computer. Therefore it wouldn't do the repair.

Used a Linux disk to copy over a Restore Point from back in time to the Config folder in System32 - had trouble writing to one disk using this facility

Tried chkdsk /r using another XP setup disk and found no trouble - but which disk is this checking??????

I guess the mirror facility copies the main disk - how do I utilize the RAID facility to mend this darn thing assuming 1 disk might be OK ???

Can't find the XP disks to do a Repair Reinstall.....
(can these be downloaded from the dell website??)

I have made an image of (what I think is) disk 1

Can't seem to do it with disk 2 as it says it needs to format it when plugged in via usb on another computer (used linux to read directories on it though)

A:RAID 1+0 array error, Offline - No ideas

In a word: Nothing.

If you have access to data on that RAID that you need, get if off now, while you can.

1) Tell RAID to remove the Arrary, make drives blank/normal.
2) disable RAID.
3) Reformat drives as regular drives. Since your SSD is your boot/Applications (go ahead and install your APPS... I'm only using about 20GB of space with ALL my apps and Windows 7 - not games). Make Drive #1 = Data, Drive #2 = games.

Optional: Use remaining two drives as Backup (use external cases) or as RAID-1, which still doesn't give you protection against virus.

I'd go with external backup. Less noise, vibration and heat inside the case... and you are not spending $150~250 for a good low-end RAID card - why bother. Those that costs $15~75 are no better, if not worse than onboard controllers. Onboard AMD RAID works pretty good actually. The fault is not the controller, just the general use of RAID-0, especially striped across 4 drives, the added complexity begs for failure. With RAID 0, a simple error which wouldn't effect a normal drive would devastate a RAID 0.

Real RAID controllers costs $300~1500,

When it comes to SSD, do research into those as well. You can spend $95~200 on a 120GB SSD drive... guess which one is crap? As of today, I'd still go with intel for SSD, even if they are not the fastest.

Boot time with an intel SSD 320 or 520 was about 14 seconds after POST with an Intel i5-2500K system. My Q6600 boots in 35 seconds (vs 105 seconds with HD)... my mobo is not optimized for SSD.

Hey, I've recently tried to install a new graphics card into a Dell Dimension 9200 pc. However, after booting up it went straight to the bios saying that there was an error with the raid drive. I have no idea how this has happened and what to do. The error isn't being given, it just says error occured.

I tried putting the old card back in but the same thing has happened. Before i installed i didnt shutdown the pc properly and was wondering if that could have caused the problem?

The harddrive in question is a samsung sp2504c

Cheers.

Yes, it is never a good idea to do that.
Check to see if you have the Intel Matrix Storage Manager software installed, it should be in the Start> All Programs group, if so launch it, the specific error should be in there, you may have to poke around in the software to find it.

If it is not installed, get it here and install it.

Most likely the error has corrected itself.

A:Blue screen error when installing Raid 0?

Usually the xp setup will not blue screen if it cant find the drivers for the sata controller. It will usually just tell you that is cant fin the hard drive. This would be the time where you make sure that your memory timings are correct. Also, if you cant load the drivers from a floppy, make sure that the drivers are the right ones. Dealing with RAID, sometimes from my experience, it is hard to find boot drivers for windows setup.

I downloaded the latest NForce drivers and copied the appropriate XP RAID Drivers to a floppy.

I start the XP install, Press F6, select the drivers for the SATA RAID and then press Enter to continue. The install loads some generic SCSI/3rd Party drivers and then says 'Windows is starting...' at the bottom.

Then my computer reboots.

I've tried with both an original XP Pro setup disk and one embedded with SP2. Same thing happens. I've tried with 5.10 Nforce drivers, and with the newest 6.6 drivers. I don't have any other drives attached to my system - just the CDROM as IDE0 Master and the SATA RAID.

This should be solvable using the windows disk management tool if that's the case.

Guys,

Is it possible to use a separate hard disk for your OS and programs with data storage on a RAID Array consisting of two (or more) identical hard disks?

Would the system disk need to be the same size as the disks used for the RAID Array?

Thanks!

I have installed Win 8.1 in some different way than normal. I have sysprepped Win 8.1 in VMware and then saved a image using Clonezilla.

I'm using a new Dell at work (an Optiplex GX280) with Windows XP, and it has recently been popping up with the following error:
"The device driver for the 'SCSI/RAID Host Controller' device is preventing the machine from entering standby. Please close all applications and try again. If the problem persists, you may need to update this driver."

That's the problem.

I've been to the Dell site, but don't see any drivers for SCSI/Raid anywhere on their site (here is where I was looking).

I also opened the Device Manager, and told the SCSI/RAID host controller to update the driver. It looks and looks and looks, but doesn't find anything.

How can I fix this?

Thanks!

Hi,
I use a RAID 1 formation of 2 Seagate 2T hard drives. Chkdsk caused errors on drive "O" or the "C" drive so that it is unbootable. I saw the errors being caused and shut it down so the Mirror drive is still OK. What is the correct procedure for recovery here?
1) Does reversing the two drives in terms of their cabeling solve the problem or could the wrong one be copied?
2) Should the "Bad Drive "O" be removed and reformatted and then become the Mirror drive?
3) I assume that I should first make a good backup copy of the mirror drive
4) Any other precautions or suggestioons.
5) Seagate tools says the drive itself is OK
6) Does mirroring go both ways? or only from "O" to "1" drive?

Hi It's been a while since i've listed anything on this brilliant forum due to the fact that with people like Brink Shawn giving you infomation regarding a problem you've got you suddenly don't have that problem anymore So RAID crcdisk.sys SATA error Ultimate with Vista x64 as this goes against my usual grain in the space of just days I have had crcdisk sys crcdisk.sys error with SATA RAID Vista x64 Ultimate boot errors which have resulted in complete rebuilds - not a happy bunny I can tell you I'm running an ASUS P N -E SLI that's fully flashed to latest BIOS and have happily run it with a Q gig RAM and Vista x Ultimate on SATA RAID for the last months and had no problems whatsoever However on Monday I put the computer to sleep instead of shutting down so just crcdisk.sys error with SATA RAID Vista x64 Ultimate pressed the quot off quot button and went to bed - big mistake Next morning defaults have been loaded at POST it wouldn't boot and going through safe mode showed the dreaded quot crcdisk sys quot stopping place in the boot list so tried and tried to no avail and then spent hours reloading updating and installing right up to SP Woke up this morning switched on and suddenly the POST screen flashes up and it says that defaults have been loaded for some reason and lo and behold we're off again with quot crcdisk sys quot error and once again it's taken another hours to get back to a semblence of order My question is this is there ANY workaround when faced with the crcdisk sys error Bearing in mind I run a SATA RAID set-up so the problem does appear to be the loss or corruption of the Nvidia SATA RAID boot drivers Surely someone must have worked out a way of salvaging their operating system rather than doing a rebuild I have tried repair but that doesn't work even if you wait for hours for it to end its cycle nor does the memory check do anything of value Have searched Google but nothing's come of that so i'm hoping one of you guys with the big crcdisk.sys error with SATA RAID Vista x64 Ultimate brains can sort this out By the way sorry if in wrong topic section Many thanks

No problems until today's boot. No modifications to the array since first configured. The computer uses Windows 7. Any ideas how to investigate or resolve this issue? I am currently running chkdsk.


More details:

Drives are WD Green 1TB SATA (32MB cache)

Mobo is AMD

PSU is 550 Watt Logisys

Each drive has it's own set of "hard drive fans" attached to it

The SATA cables have a metal locking mechanism that securely keeps them connected

A:RAID question: how can I renew the data in raid array?

I'm not sure what you want to do.. You want to copy something to the /dev/hdd disk (from another computer maybe) and then copy the data from /dev/hdd to the RAID array?

Since you are using RAID1 then it should be fairly simple.
You just simulate disk failure by removing /dev/hdd. You could do this by making the hdd drive hdc instead (jumper it to be the secondary master). Now you mount the "hdc" drive (that really was you hdd) and copy whatever you want to /dev/md0.
Since it's a RAID1 array then all the data that goes to md0 is written to hdb and when the /dev/hdd comes back the RAID is syned onto both disks again.

I'm not sure if that makes any sense to you. Can't be less obscure than your post though

A:Need to clone a RAID mirror (two drives) to a non-RAID, single HD

If the drives are mirrored then imaging one drive should be all you need. If the drives are striped then the two drives are being combined together to make ~160GB drive.

I guess to determine this, what is the capacity of the main 'logical' drive? 80 or 160'ish?

A:RAID - deleted RAID array, Windows 7 ok but I have questions

You can do into Disk Management and it will tell you which drive is used for booting. It will say it is active.

I am confused as to one part. You say you want to leave the second drive in your computer, but use it as an external. You can use one as your main drive, and use the other for backup...however a good backup process involves a drive that isn't readily available all the time. That being said, something like SyncToy from Microsoft will allow you to choose folders and on a schedule or manually, copy them to the second drive. I use this on my wife's laptop to keep her photos backed up to our server.

RAID has no place on a desktop system, so you are better off without it. But to get started, just go into Disk Management to see how your drives are configured now. Post a screenshot if need be.

The computer has been fine for around 2 years, never an issue. About an hour ago I reboot the machine and instead of having my RAID 1 as my C drive, I now have two identical drives, the C drive and the H drive.

How do I get them back to where they belong?

In the BIOS SATA is still set to RAID, and I admit that I didn't do the raid config. I am assuming it was RAID 1 because both drives are still working, just working separately instead of as one.

Any suggestions?

i have an MSI 915P/G motherboard with two maxtor 160GB HDD's as a RAID 1 array. my mobo has an onboard RAID controller. the system worked. wanted to reinstall xp, so i performed [email protected] killdisk on my c: partition. now windows doesn't see my RAID array. i installed an additional seagate SATA HD and was able to install XP on it. device manager displays a yellow question mark by my RAID controller, but if i install drivers for the RAID my computer fails to boot and goes to windows 'safe mode or last known good OS' screen. safe mode just keeps rebooting, last known good takes me back to RAID controller driver problems.
any ideas of how to get my data off the d: partition of my maxtor drives would be great.

I created a windows system image with the backup and restore utility built into win7. This windows install is on a single hard drive. I built and onboard RAID 0+1 array and used the windows 7 install disk to restore the image on to the new RAID volume. Windows starts to boot up but the screen goes black and reboots. The windows recovery screen appears and asks if I want to run the startup repair or start windows normally. I selected the startup repair. Windows goes through it's paces and tries to repair but fails. It says "NoRootCause" and the problem is likely caused by a recent system change or upgrade. I have the feeling windows needs some kind of RAID drivers or something. The onboard RAID is a P5W DH Deluxe motherboard. Any ideas? Is this even possible to do?

A:Windows 7 System Image - Restore Non-RAID to RAID 0+1

MetalliMyers, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Assuming you built the RAID while still using the single disk this is what worked for me when I was experimenting with RAID,

1. Install drives and configure the array

2. Boot to Windows and install the necessary RAID driver

3. Make a full backup after the drivers are installed

4. Used imaging program (at the time I used Acronis True Home, but should work with any imaging app) to put the backup on the array

5. Disconnected the single drive after imaging just to remove it from causing any problems

6. Started up and it booted to Windows

No promises but it should work. Failing that you are looking at a fresh install of Windows.

Installed a new M4 ssd today and loaded windows on it. Previously i was using 2 raptors in raid 0 for the os and programs. I re raided the 2 raptors and connected them to the jmicron ports and set them up for raid in bios, then created the raid 0 array no prob. Windows doesnt see the array when loaded up and i have the latest rst drivers installed..did this prior to the os install on the ssd. did i do something wrong? using the x58 e760a1 mobo. under device manager, the raid controller has an exclamation mark and no driver installed yet i have the latest rst 10.8.0.1003 installed..

Having a problem at boot up where Norton AV shows a message about a program trying to prevent it from starting. After clicking OK, a "Raid Service U.S. English Resources has encountered a problem" mssg comes up. If the Close button is clicked on quick enough, the comp doesn't lock up.

Really don't want to mess with the video card drivers. Have no Audigy drivers either. Installed and set up delayrun.exe to see if the nvraidservice.exe can start up much later than NAV. It worked for the most part but sometimes the error comes back. Does anyone have any ideas on where the delayrun.exe and .ini files should be, if they need to be in the Start or System32 folder?

A:Error Message: RAID 0 drive is failing back up immediately...Please help!

Hi,

First, could you not just change the format of your external drive (Re-format) to NTSC & then use that to complete a full back-up?

You could use something like Norton Ghost or O&O software both of these run from cd to back-up/ create an image of the drive.

http://uk.norton.com/ghost

http://www.oo-software.com/home/en/p...age/index.html

I am not sure if both will bypass the error segments of the drive or if the drive is too damaged already to create an image but it's worth a go before one of them fails completely!

After all once the drive does fail the information in a striped RAID set would be costly to recover (Specialist company).

We see nothing but problems here with RAID, ever since beta. These problems are always resolved by setting SATA controller to AHCI and removing all but the target HD for install.

Is there a specific reason why you need RAID? It really confers no benefits since many users lose everything if they lose a single HD. Better to use a modern imaging suite and real time backup similar to Sync, Backup and Store your Files to the Cloud with Skydrive - Windows 7 Forums.

One thing you can try is to preformat an Active partition using Step 2.2 of SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation which can overcome most install problems.

If the error occurs again, post back the verbatim error message. You can also google it at the same time to read how others have resolved it.

Win7 doesn't much like RAID0 which is not redundant and risks loss of everything if you lose a single HD.

Better to install to one HD and use built-in backup imaging to store an image as well as other backup and files on the other drive. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

A:NAS or desktop HDD for RAID 1 (or windows software raid)

Hey there HerrKaLeun!

I can see you're a bit confused about the drives and NAS requirements. But it's a good thing you're looking into details to understand better. Let me see if I can help you clear things a bit.

The NAS environments are very tough. Regular drives used in RAID/NAS systems can get damaged, destroyed and corrupted really fast because they aren't designed with the "defences" that NAS/RAID hard drives have.

NAS/RAID drives are equipped with technology protecting them from the higher temperatures and constant vibrations, gives them 24/7 reliability, they're tested for longer hours to endure in a harsher environment, all to protect the information you store better.

Some NAS/RAID drives are for smaller NAS systems like the WD Red, others are for larger NAS systems like the WD Red Pro and for large enterprise systems like the WD RE. The "smaller system" drives can't handle larger NASes than the ones they're designed for (e.g. 2-4 bay system is a small NAS), but the "larger system" drives can handle small NASes (e.g. 6-8 bay system is a large NAS); in most cases enterprise NAS/RAID drives are the ones with bigger and safer works.

These reasons are why you should consider a specialized drive for NAS and RAID rather than an usual desktop drive.

The MTBF means Mean Time Between Failure, and is typical to be characterized for such NAS/RAID drives, usually in hours which usually sum up at around 1 mil.

Whether you'll choose a WD, HGST or another brand, that's all up to you personal preference, certain requirements and financial ability.

Hope I've helped!

Did a system image backup of the C: drive to my 1TB D: drive, installed the 2nd Vertex 120 (both are FW 1.5), enabled RAID in BIOS and created a RAID0 in the Intel RAID launch program. Then did an image restore to the new RAID0 C: drive. And... it won't boot -- hangs about 1 second into the "fireflies" in the boot process. It must be the boot.ini doesn't like the RAID0 config when it was backed up as a AHCI drive. Windows 7 repair fails. How do I gain access to the boot.ini file? Or is it the boot.ini file?

I should add that it does boot from a clean Win7 install, just not the image restore from the single AHCI Vertex.

HELP!!

A:Cannot boot from non-RAID image restored to RAID SSD

You need to get the raid drivers into the o/s you just restored.

The only way I can think of to do that is with Paragon Adaptive restore - select P2P adjust o/s ,select the o/s to adjust, select upload drivers, browse to the .inf - give it a few secs to load , next, Apply, and it's done.
