Raid 5 keeps falling over on Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R
Posted on 2010-08-20
I have a problem with my raid 5 config it keeps blowing up disk 3.
One day my system would not boot it got stuck on bios screen when detecting HDD 3 on port 5 just nothing happened. Disconnected HDD 3 and system came back up with degraded Raid. Reconnected hdd 3 and rebuilt raid OK.
Some days later same thing happened but this time no matter what I did it would not accept HDD 3 anyomore so I decided it must be a dud disk so got it replaced. Installed new disk system hung again but this time on bios flash screen. Couple of reboots got me past this and I was off rebuilding the raid again, no problems until next reboot. Same thing happened system just hangs HDD 3 pull out of system boots degraded again. Thought this must be a faulty port so tried another but no luck. Disk OK as slave so that's not the issue. It seems no matter what I do HDD 3 will fall over. Forgot to say BIOS is unable to detect HDD 3 after raid rebuild.
I would be greateful for a solution.
