My DELL XPS 700 came with nVidia C19/MCP55 chipset motherboard. My two 340GB SATA disks were set up with RAID 0 (stripe).
The motherboard died and my external back-up has gone awry, and I am looking at two perfectly good SATA disks with perfectly good data on them, but don't know how to get the data off.
DELL told me that they are not able to provide a replacement motherboard. They offered me a deal on a replacement system, but said that they do not do data recovery and that I cannot get the data off my disks, but recommended I try a local data recovery expert. Local data recovery experts said that you cannot get the data off the disks without using the same motherboard, and that I should go to DELL. Bah.
The data is valuable. Do I have to find a nVidia C19/MCP55 motherboard to access it (e.g. from eBay) or is there another way that I can get my data from the stripe?
