SATA RAID 1. Windows Corrupted. Need to fix one drive while keeping redundancy
Posted on 2006-11-29
This is sort of a VERY important question as it's for the OWNER OF THE COMPANY'S computer... so all help would be appreciated :D
It's a Dell Precision workstation with 2 150GB SATA HDD running on RAID1
The computer will not boot to windows (safe mode, last known or normal)
It gets to the windows progress screen, but the progress bar just keeps moving (even after an overnighter)
Get the computer back into windows without losing ANY data.
My first idea was to disconnect one of the SATA drives and start working at that point.
Also, when I went into the Windows Recovery Console, it hung as well...
