Windows 7 Recovery Issues(29 posts)
0 RAID0(Stripe) Status Failed Bootable No
Then it lists the 2 drives as Physical Devices.
the first one: 0 Status Non-RAID Disk
the second: 1 Status Member Disk(0)
That's what I was afraid of.
Since the drives were in an Array 0 configuration, there is no way to rebuild the array.
I hope you had important data backed up to something as the drives will have to be deleted from the array and a new array configured.
Then a Clean Install will have to be made unless you have a current image of the broken array.
Sorry to be the bearer of of bad news. :( :(
Well, I just had programs on that drive. All my important data was on the other drives. Still, it's a real pain in the butt to reinstall all that crap.
Was there something I should have done, so I know next time in the future? Create multiple disk images and store them on DVDs? Or should I just forget the Raid0 thing altogether as a precaution to myself?
Also, is there a way I can still access that drive, perhaps by installing Windows on a separate drive?
Both drives have to be deleted from the array.
Raid 0 you lose all your data if one drive fails.
Raid 0+1 (10) is redundant so both drives have the same data.
In any case you will have to re-configure and clean install
Then keep good Images on another third drive.
That's why I insisted you must READ THE MANUAL.
Have to leave for the evening.
Post back tomorrow night and I shall be here.
