I have the system setup as follows:

One machine connected to a SAN on /raid5lun3
One disk pack connected to this machine
And this machine has got two disks mirrored........

Then one of the mirrored disks was degraded and I tried to replace it, ever since I get the message: no boot device found.

What can I do if I want to recreate a this failed raid and get my system up and running?

I was previously running on Redhat 9, but I want to use Fedoracore 6 now.

Please assist me on creating a raid again for my system to be stable.

What kind of RAID controller are you using?

Did you replace the broken drive with a drive with identical firmware? Have you tried swapping the drives around?

It's a hardware raid
I have replaced it with an identical drive. And try to put back the old one and force it online, they are now both online but still can't boot.

Most RAID controller will attempt to rebuild the array when you insert a new drive.

I would first and foremost boot to a live OS such as Puppy Linux. Use it to back up all of your data.
