Boot Problem after Raid Recovery
Posted on 2011-03-03
motherboard Gigabyte GA-8I915PL-G rev 2.0
VIA TECH Raid bios ver 4.80
I have a system that started to loose the power supply. The 5v to the hard drives was down arround 4v. Sys crashed with the raid bios telling me I lost a disk. In process of replacing disks I determined I had a marginal power supply. Swapped out the power supply. I got the system to come up on two drives, but only after chedsk did a lot of repair work. Mirrored the two drives, and repeated it again,so I have four new drives.
I'm having a problem getting the system to boot-up.
If I go into the raid bios I see the disks status as:
The bios has these options
create/delete a spare
select boot array
show serial numbers
I tried to "select boot array". It changes the status on all the disks to "Boot".
System still does not boot.
I don't want to wipe out my data while I try to figure this out.
Any help would appreciated.
The system see all disks and send me to the raid setup screen.
