I have an IBM Server X3200 with two SAS 134GB HDD running software raid on Windows 2003
Under the Disk Manager the RAID is healthy and sync but when I rebbot the server I get on Boot
the option to boot from the Second HDD - secondary Plex

Can you please advice?

This is because it is software RAID, the at the BIOS level it only sees the hardware and it sounds like you're running RAID 1 which mirrors the drives and since both drives are identical it sees both drives as bootable.

Yes I Know but my problem is on the boot.ini I have two options to choose
1. Windows 2003 Sever
2. Bootable C: = secondary Plex

Usually you get this option if the RAID1 is broken or one drive is faulty

My RAID1 is Healthy and sync....

Thanks for your Replay

You can delete that 2nd line from the boot.ini without any problems.  If it reappears after a few reboots then its likely just a function of the raid drivers.  

I'm not sure what else you're trying to find out. Do you have any specific questions I might help with?
