Dell PowerEdge 830 Data Recovery via BartPE or Knoppix - SATA RAID drivers?
Posted on 2010-01-12
I have a Dell PowerEdge 830 Desktop Server, running Win2k3 Standard Edition, latest Service Pack, that caught a nasty virus that's infected the whole O/S.
I'd like to begin data recovery via BartPE or Knoppix Linux to transfer user data from the D: drive.
I cannot get anything but Win2k3 (infected) to recognize the C: and D: drives.
The RAID Array is a 3 HD configured in RAID 5, 2 logical disks present (C: and D:).
I have gotten the drivers for the controller card, and I install them when prompted by BartPE, and it looks okay, but when I boot into the PE, neither the C: nor D: drive are present.
If anyone has had any experience getting to the drives on this type of array, I would be most grateful if you shared.
This server has been down for four days. The need for data recovery to begin server re-build is now critical.
Good Luck. Cheers.
