Making a new boot partition and mbr on raid 0
Posted on 2006-06-16
I have a computer running two 80 gig SATA drives in striping raid array using onboard nvidia raid controller. One of the guys messed with something in the bios, and after that windows would blue screen during boot with the error "Unmountable_Boot_Volume." I booted from the XP Pro CD, loaded the correct Nvidia raid drivers, and went to recovery console. I ran "fixboot", but it appears that it only wrote a new boot sector to one of the hard drives. Now, it won't boot to XP at all, and when you boot from the XP Pro CD, it sees both drives seperately instead of one raid drive. The raid drive is reported to be healthy by the raid utility. I'm at a loss, and he didn't back up any of his stuff (of course) and he's got over $200 of Itunes music on there among other things. I think if I could write a new boot partition to the raid volume, all problems would be solved.
Thanks in advance,
