Did you try interfacing with your controller card or RAID setup menu?  For example, Intel RAID controllers give you a menu interface that lets you select what you want to do when you replace a drive.  It may not be as simple as swapping out a defective drive.

I can check the documentation a bit later or tomorrow.  Doesn't it give you the hotkeys to press at boot?  Look for something like, "Press F11 to view boot options" or "Press Shift-F5 to access the RAID boot"

I've always seen it say at least something to press to access the RAID menu.

Are you sure that you replaced the good disk?

Did you try te replace the other one?

I guess your raid 1 may have either a monitoring tool on Windows, if not you can access the raid controller at boot, just read carefully what to press when it's booting.

If you are running raid1  and raid is correctly setup, you should be able to boot, even if one of the disk fails

Hey,


Try pressing F9 at boot repeatedly.  Let us know if it takes you into the Array setup.
