I'm running Windows 7 Pro in a srtiped array. It's actually RAID 10, but the mirrors dropped off which I understand happens a lot with a software RAID configuration. It was running but not being used for a few minutes and went to a black boot screen that said BOOT DISK FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER. I tried a reboot, and it scanned for drives much longer than usual and said the array was offline. There is a continual slow beep while it is running. I have no back up image since I was relying on the mirrors for back up. How can I recover this system?
