How can I get this primitve Intel Matrix RAID software to actually see my 3 Hard disk as online memebers?
Posted on 2008-06-25
I'm playing a game, and in the middle of it..... blackout -> computer reboots!
Had a bad feeling about this!
Now the bios and computer at boot up detect the Hardisk as healthy, but for some reason, it now does not know it's RAID configuration and sees the 3 hard disks as offline members!
it has happen 1 year ago, but I at least, I had 2 healthy online members, and 1 was offline due to hardisk failiure.
Right now it just seems like the raid does not know it's configuration...
How can I bring this back to life?
By the way, the Intel Matrix Storage is part of and ASUS motherboard P5W DH Deluxe
why is that RAID controler so shaky? it defetes the purpose of RAID, if Hard Disks are good but controler is now blind and does not know they are and were part of a RAID5 with 3 HDs
Where is this raid information stored?
I can't even create a new RAID it sais that there is not space available, or delete it, as it sais it has no RAID.
Hope it makes some sense, and that someone out there has seen and fixed such a freeky situation.
I have a backup, from 2 weeks ago ;-(
but why Oh why does it do this and forget about the config?
hope someone has something good
