Hello:
I have W2000 Server in a machine with two UW2SCSI hard disks in a RAID 0 or mirroring with Windows2000 Server utility for this.
The system disk has crashed, but in theory both disks have the same information.
How can I start from second disk? Is it possible?

Thanks a lot

-Definaly you can boot from the second disk..
-Re-ID the disks... Make disk ID1 be ID0.. Have a 2000 boot diskette handy & boot from what was the mirrored copy.

Had the same problem on our NT 4 server. The mirrored disk was never made bootable, so we could only boot from a floppy. Had to do a sys C: to that disk and do a quick reinstall of the OS to the same directory.

Thanks !!
I have recovered data, but no programs was mirrored before.  So, I recovered data but not programs (doesn't matter).

Thanks and regards
