I have a HP z800 workstation that is running windows 7, we had a power cut in the office a few days ago and I only tried to turn it back on today.

As soon as it tries to boot from the HDD a error message come up -
"non system disk or disk error"

After investigating I discovered that the PC is using RAID 0.

How ever when I go into the RAID configuration utility it states that the RAID is working fine and that both discs are present.

If I boot from the Windows 7 disc and choose the startup repair facility there are no OS's to choose from.

Does this mean that my RAID has been corrupted and that therefore there is nothing I can do other than to format the machine?
