HP Proliant G5 Raid 1, 2 Disk + 1 Spare - Disk Failure (Not Rebooting)
Posted on 2015-02-24
I have a Server: HP Proliant G5 Raid 1, 2 Disk + 1 Spare 3 Partitions: C, D and E, OS = Windows Server 2008 R2
I was using the software Active Disk Partition (Lsoft.net) and selected the C partition
Then I selected convert MBR to GPT. As soon as i just selecte this option the server restarted.
Now It can't find boot disk. The server keeps restarting and indicating disk error. So looks like the raid controller tries to recover but after few min it indicates disk 1 (first bay) is failed.
What do I need to do to get the server back to booting?
Do I need to move disk BAy 2 to Disk bay 1 for it to boot? when I just remove the first bay disk and restart the system doesn't boot.
whats the safe procedure? I also have the active boot disk software on USB so I could boot and try to repair if.
thanks in advance
