Windows 2000 spanned volume - dynamic drive unreadable
Posted on 2001-07-28
I have 4 hard drives. Disk 0 is the boot drive (NTFS), Disks 1-3 are all dynamic and are a spanned volume. I bought a new machine and installed the 3 drives into the new win2k machine. Now I get an error for one of the drives, saying Dynamic Unreadable. Event Viewer says:
dmboot: Failed to start volume Volume3 (S:) I've looked on MS support they say that the partition table may have changed from 0x42 (dynamic) to 0x07 (ntfs) on this drive, and to use dskprobe.exe to change the info. I played with that for about 3 hours and it looks like its set to 0x42 but im not sure. I have all of my data (160 gigs) on this volume and by losing this drive I lose all the data on the spanned volume. If you have any ideas please let me know...
