I have a Dell Precision Workstation with RAID 1. One drive failed some time ago and we replaced it, not it appears another drive has failed, but the "good" member will not boot.
There are two drive, a Western DIgital, and a Samsung. both 80Gb..
The Raid Controller in BIOS shows the RAID1 has failed and the 2 member disks, in the member disk area it shows that the WD is a "member" and the samsung has failed..
However if I I do a diagnostics, it reports that the WD drive is dead and the samsung is OK
I took them out and put in an external drive unit, Again the WD shows nothing.. but the Samsung shows data..
It's almost like the samsung does not have the boot sector/ MBR and that is the good drive..
Fortunately I was able to recover all the data up to the minute it dies, and have transferred it to a second machine and they are running agin.. but is this fixable?
I did put in 2 750Mb drives from an Intel board that was running RAID 1, and it pickup up that pair and booted ..so the controller appears to be good.
