RAID 1 failure on SBS 2008 Server - Need help urgently!
Posted on 2014-01-05
I showed up at a client's office today, started a remote session to the server, entered my user name and password in the remote desktop login screen for the server. On the actual server itself, the server promptly died with a quick BSOD.
The server hung with a RAID error on startup. Did not get to any Windows boot at all. It's asking me to enter a boot disk :-(
The C drive (system) is RAID 1, 1TB drives. The D drive (data) is also 1 TB drives.
Motherboard is ASUS P6T (about 3 years old). RAID is handled onboard (managed with onboard Intel Matrix Storage Manager v184.108.40.2068.
Disk volume information reads:
ID0 MAIN RAID1 (Mirror) Strip n/a Size 931.5GB STATUS: Failed Bootable: No
ID0 DATA RAID1 (Mirror) Strip n/a Size 931.5GB STATUS: Rebuild Bootable: Yes
Below, in "Physical disks", first disk is "offline member". The next three are Member Disk(0), Member Disk(1), and Member Disk(1), respectively.
Even with RAID until I can pick up a disk, how would I get this system running. I presume the system is on Member Disk(0), correct?
Really need this system running before morning if at all possible!
