Long story short: I'm installing a SATA Raid controller and two SATA drives into a new system. These drives are data drives, not system drives. They used to be in my old fileserver and worked well for over a year. However, I'm having issues installing them into the new system.....
During POST, it shows the physical drives as "healthy", but displays the array as "degraded."
The Drives do not show up under My Computer in the new system
So I placed the controller and drives back into the old system (where it worked flawlessly for over a year) and it is showing the same thing: Physical drives are healthy but the array shows as "degraded." This makes no sense, as just yesterday it was showing as a healthy array?!?!?
The controller is an Adaptec 1210SA, and the operating system of the new system it's going into is XP.
The motherboard of the system is a Gigabyte running a 2.6c P4
