Cant boot after Partition table recovery
Posted on 2008-06-23
I have a Windows server 2003 wich was running raid1 on the drive containting 3 partitions. The raid where configurated in LSI Logic Embedded SATA RAID, so the disk shall be mirrored, but they appear as one disk in windows.
When we were adding a second hd to the server to use for backup somethin happend with the raid and the OS could not be found.
I took the sata disk and put it in another computer and saw the drive compleatly unformatted, used a program called "Partition Table Doctor" to restore the partitiontable and all looked good. I putted it back into my server as a single disk with no other disk installed.
But i just got to a black screen with a blinking _
Putted it back in extra computer as a single disk, were it stopped at "verifying DMI pool Data"
I have backups from NTbackup, but i think they ar useless here, i also have tried to rebuild the MBR.
Edit: When i use the HD as a slave in another computer, everythning is fine, i can see and open all files from all partitions.
