Intel D945GCZ board / RAID1 / Server 2003 cannot see array

I setup a mirrored array in the intel RAID setup and the status is OK. I then downloaded this driver:
It loads IaStor.sys and continues but then says it cannot see any disk to install 2K3 onto?

Any ideas?

I have a server running sql application. I need to create a backup system that replicates the current server to another server so that if my current server crashes; I can start the other one to provide...

This is a complex and diverse question due to the numerous scenarios.

A common setup: Dual servers setup on a fail over cluster. You basically make two servers seem as one with a virtual IP and name. Hardware breakdown is 2 servers with 5 drives each minimum. The first 2 drives the OS at RAID 1 (mirrored). The other 3 drives are the database at RAID 5 (striped). You now have hardware redundancy all the way around. When 1 drives fails, you simply replace the drive. The database is replicated and is fail safe. When a complete server fails or needs maintenance you just roll over the server / database to the other node via cluster administration.

This is just an example, but a very common SQL server setup in busisness enterprise environment.

While on line the AMD Raidxpert keeps popping up about every 10 seconds.This stops everything in I'm doing . Is there something I should do to stop this?

The Raidxpert is installed because your computer came with Raid capability. Whether you have a raid setup or not, I don't know. A raid is using 2 or more hard drives combined to make one bigger hard drive or it's 2 or more drives configured to make mirror drives of each other or both. If you have raidxpert then you probably have some sort of a raid array in your computer and the warning you're receiving is probably trying to alert you to some kind of a failure in the raid array. You may have a mirror drive that is failing. Need more information about the error message you're receiving but you probably shouldn't ignore it. If you have a Raid0 and one of your drives fails you loose everything.

OS on RAID is corrupt

Hi Compufixa,

Your problem is with the system needing a raid driver for the motherboard or the raid card. pretend you are installing windows with bartpe. it also asks you for the raid drivers. use a floppy disk with the raid drivers and let it load. that should let you see the raid drives as a set.

Hi Guest,

Your problem is a little different. since its a mirror raid. you might want to try taking out one of the drive and work with a single drive until it is fix. try doing a repair with the windows CD. seems like there are some corrupted OS files. And you might want to start a new question since your problem is really different from Compufixa's problem. Thanks

Configuring raid drives

You're going to need more drives. When you say Parity, we'll assume that you want to stripe the drives. For that you need 3 drives. Can you put more drives in the machine? You could put two drives in for the OS and mirror them. Then you'd have the 3 drives available for data using RAID 5 (striping with parity)

Sound does not play

Did you install the drivers for the main board or sound card?

If not try installing them. If you do not have the drivers you can log on to the manufactures web page , the people that made your sound card or main board. for example if you are using an intel main board go to click on support and download, then simply search you model in the search box for e.g if you have an intel bsd810bc search bsd810bc it will display a list of download's for your main board..

If that isnt your problem or you have difficulties please resond here with the Type of mainboard you have and the model and we'll bhe of more assistance.
