Dell PE1850 with 2 146GB Raid 1 mirrored drive that need to moved to identical server

I have a PE 1850 with 2 146GB mirrored Raid 1 - The system powers up and stops at the "Power Edge Expandabler Raid" splash screen. Ctrl M  5 or 6 times and it just beeps after the 6th ctrl m - I have an identical PE 1850 that I would like to slide the two drives into - Will this work?

It should, as long as you set it up the same, and it's not a drive that's the problem.

You might want to try doing just one drive, and see if it will boot as a degraded raid1. That way one drive should still has good data on it.

Or run test diags on the drives from another OS.
