Software RAID Problem

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?

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?

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
