My brother in law has a Dell XPS gen2 With 2 raid 0 SATA drives. He kept getting blue screens and memory errors. We found out it was the power supply. He called them and they told him some outrages price for a refurbished POS. I told him we would buy another one from an online retailer.... DIDN'T FIT! He returned. We decided to transplant. MOBO didn't fit! We said fine we'll get a new MOBO and processor. We go along with the transplant, but I forgot to backup the data (moron). I decided to put all the components back in the Dell to back up the drive. I tried to boot and I get press f1 to retry boot, f2 to enter configuration. So I stuck in my handy dandy windows XP installation CD to repair the install. I loaded the raid drivers. After This it finally pops up the partitions. It shows up as unpartitioned space (232 gb).
My XP installation can't be found... After you are done telling me how stupid I was for not backing up my data; It would be great if you all could help... Thanks.
