Hi a customer's server had
* 2 x 500GB RAID 1 drives as the boot c-drive.
* There are other drives but they are disconnected for now
* O/S = Windows 7 Ultimate (using it as an SQL server)
* Motherboard = Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H
For some reason the server stopped booting. They have very poor electricity supply (3rd world country) and even though they have a UPS there is often loss of power.
So server stopped booting. We tried many things under pressure to get it to boot with no success.
So in desperation we hooked up one of the C-drives to another workstation PC and successfully got data off it. Drive was mapped to X:. I believe they did the same with the other C-Drive (a bit of a mistake).
So still neither C-drive has been bootable on the original server. It just gets to the American Megatrends screen and locks up.
BUT, when they plugged one of the C-Drives into the GSATA ports (ie Gigabyte controller SATA instead of the Intel), suddenly the drives started to boot - BUT now the drives think they are X: and not C:. So the Windows 7 does not boot. (See picture below).
I don't mind reverting to a single boot drive (ie losing the RAID 1). If I could just relabel the Disks to C:. Although I would prefer to re-instate the RAID.
A) How can I relabel a drive to be C: ?
B) Is the Intel RAID Controller faulty? Or is it just some BIOS error?
C) Is there any chance I can restore the RAID 1 ?
D) What utility tools can you recommend? And how to use them?
