Lenovo TS440 Sever with what appears to be failed drive!
Okay, got a call and was asked to troubleshoot a server, lenovo ts440 4 drive bay server. It has 3 drives, the data resides in a raid one array with 2 4tb drives and I am assuming is okay. The other drive is a 500gb Seagate that held the OS Server 2016. I can get to boot screen and after that nothing, just hangs, disk repair yielded no help with same result. So question is, if I replace this drive and reinstall the OS will I lose the data on the raid one array or will windows see it already formatted with data intact and again I am assuming that array is okay, the raid controller shows it to be functioning correctly.
Thanks in advance and before you lecture me on setting an OS on a single drive with raid available, I didn't do it, I've just been asked to help.. Cheers.
Another thing, They have a clean backup that is a day old, backup is only system data files, not a system backup
