Prior to Xmas I tried upgrading the BIOS on my server (WIN 2003 SBS) to help some errors with a SCSI tape drive and I have now broken the RAID array which was mirrored across 2 hard drives. I'm desperate to get things back to the way they were.
The software I am using is the Intel Matrix Storage Manger that is compatible with the chipset on the motherboard for RAID array. The motherboard is a Gigabyte P45 ICH10R.
I have since found out that in some cases the computer will blue screen and re-boot after trying to set the RAID again in the BIOS if you already have the OS installed. This happened to me so in desperation I put the BIOS back to the old one and set it to normal volumes and no ACHI or RAID. This was the only way it would boot up again and now I have 4 separate volumes instead of 2 mirrored. Help!
The Intel help on the Storage Matrix software does say you can make a RAID after the OS is installed but the necessary prequisites don't seem to work for me.
The Matrix Storage software now has a error when starting up and I cannot use my imaging software anymore either. I tried making the volumes dynamic in windows but that has not helped and of course it won't allow me to mirror as it thinks I have no spare space/drive which I don't .
Can anyone please help me to get the current volumes back to a mirror? Thanks
