Possible hard drive fail?
 
I've been using my setup for months now... no issues...

Suddenly this morning when i turn my computer on it says Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media...

I threw the windows vista cd in because all 3 of my harddrives are detected in the bios.... (2 are in raid 0 with my OS on it)


When I boot up from the cd, and try startup repair.... it doesnt detect any operating system...



What should I try next? I have alot of important data I need off these drives

Are you using the Intel ICH9R Raid?

dataxpert April 30, 2009 08:02 AM

what raid option on that board you use, I know it's raid0, I means you use the intel , or Jb one

a lot of important data on raid 0 ?

I believe so... whatever comes on the maximus formula

dataxpert April 30, 2009 08:05 AM

The board have no Jb raid... so it's Intel .

Hmmm.... is there any way to retrieve files from a raid setup.... being that there are two discs.... i dont know how I would go about attempting it.

FIXED IT!!! Somehow the bios defaulted in my sleep haha and the sata config got turned back onto IDE... switched it to RAID... and im golden!


that was a close call..

Better make a backup just in case, RAID 0 isn't too safe :whistle:

dataxpert April 30, 2009 08:15 AM

Yes you have 2 disk , but that what is all the problem about in raid 0, one disk fail...all disk fail. Did you try to go on bios. and check in IDE configuration if everything is set properly, refer to your manual

after go in the raid bios ctrl+i , to see the status of the raid. and came back with the info , do not change anything on the raid bios

He found the solution :clap: :thumb: the time I write it......... :sad: those bios often return to default. I was confuse with the JB at first because my Maximus Extreme have one JB raid.... I hope you learn and try simple thing before panic an use the Vista Disk, you can have mess a lot with it. now BACK UP , BACK UP , BACK UP , did I said BACK UP
