I have a Windows 2003 Server SP2 with a failed hard drive.
The Intel matrixx storage console 7.5software is showing me this.
The hard drive is a Seagate 9CA152-302 ST3250310NS
It is a 250Gb Sata 7200 RPM drive.
Do I have to replace with the same exact same brand hard drive including firmware or will any 250Gb 7200rpm SATA drive work?
I did an online chat with Seagate & they said that it was dependent upon the controller. I couldn't find anything specific within the Intel Knowledgebase.
Intel ICH8R/ICH9R SATA RAID Controller
Bad HD is on Sata port 2.
Also wondering if it would mess up the RAID if you changed ports to rule out a bad port.
additional RAID controller info from the Hardware Device Manager.
