Dell failed raid 5
Posted on 2009-07-04
I have a Dell PowerEdge 2450 server with 4 36GB scsi drives in a Raid 5. 2 drives have failed. When I boot the system, it says no OS found or something to that nature and will not boot up. The drives that failed are 0 and 1. I have put the drives in a poweredge 6300 server, after building a c drive on a single drive, then a raid 5 container with 4 other drives. After getting the OS up I put these in. I'm now scanning them with a file recovery program.
Dell told us we can put the drives back in the server, boot it to the raid setup and do a ctrol+r to try to do a recovery.
Is there anything else we can try to recover this raid?
