I previously installed Windows XP on a RAID 0 configuration (one PCI PNY S-CURE SATA RAID card) and all my data in a RAID3 array on a separate PCI PNY S-CURE SATA RAID card. All was going quite well.
However, just about a week or week and a half ago, the RAID card for the Windows install showed a fault on one of the drives, and then the system BIOS couldn't find the Windows installation on that RAID configuration to boot, so I got a message like this (I forget the exact message):
MISSING BOOT DISK, REPLACE BOOT DISK AND PRESS ANY KEY TO CONTINUE
It's a common message, but I may not be remembering it correctly.
So, I just broke down and purchased 2 drives to replace the current RAID 0 array - they were 2 WD 80 GB hard drives, and I replaced with 2 74GB 16MB cache WD Raptors.
Everything went fine, except that now I can no longer see the data on the RAID 3 setup, nor the spare hard drive I have on the same RAID card as the RAID 3 setup. The BIOS for the card shows that all is well, no changes, but the new Windows install cannot find it.
Is there a way to make Windows see the actual data on my drive, so that I do not have to attempt to "recover" the data to another hard drive? I'm hoping to not have to buy another hard drive, and just add/change some Windows files in order to recognize the storage drives as active drives.
The partitions on the RAID3 and additional one disk RAID 0 drives are setup in NTFS format.
Any help/suggestions/advice? Any will be greatly appreciated!
