Windows 2003 showing Drives as unknown and unreadable

I recently had a failed SAN Migration on a Windows 2003 Server. I removed the Host from the SAN Array and deleted the bad LUNS. I cleared the bad drive configuration from EMC Powerpath and rebooted several times. The drives still show in Disk Management as unknow and unreadable. I have tried everything including DISKPART but can't get them cleared. PowerPath realizes they are gone. HELP

Did you try to refresh the drive list using "diskmgmt.msc" Menu Action/Scan all drives ?

I thought the DISKPART ReScan command was the exact same one than the DiskMgmt one !
