Raid w/ hard drive defunct

It says there is a hard drive that is defunct however the system does boot up but the application does not work and I think it is due to the oracle not being able to run. How to recover from the data corruption due to the drive failure?

Well lets make some assumptions
1. You have a Raid 5 System
2. You only have 3 drives in the Raid ARRAY
3. Only 1 drive has failed

To fix the problem you should only need to Replace the Failed Drive
Then start the raid management software or bios
Rebuild the array

If you have more than 1 drive failed in a RAID 5, and still must recover the data it is possible. But very expensive. Still fixable however.

A RAID 5 array would still allow you to access and use the data with one drive having failed. So, since your application isn't functioning I'm assuming that you've lost more than one hard drive in a RAID 5 array OR you've lost both drives in a two drive RAID 1 array OR you've lost one (or more) hard drive(s) in a RAID 0 array OR you've lost a lethal combination of drives in a RAID 10 array. Any way you slice it you will have to replace the failed drives and restore the data from a backup. The only other "safe" option is "roll the dice" with a data recovery service (no guarantees of success) and (will be much more costly than it would have been to have an active backup system in place). You can always try to recover the data yourself; there are various techniques, none of which are safe and WILL make data recovery service less likely a successful option. Good luck!

MY LEPTOP IS NOT WORKING ITS WRITTING: CHECK CABLE CONNECTION PXE MOF: EXITING INTEL PXE ROM NO BOOTABLE DEVISE - INSERT BOOT DISK AND PRESS ANY KEY what shuld i do???? helppp plzzzzz


Your system is trying to boot to a Network Boot (PXE Boot is the way corporations image systems on the network with a corporate image) most likely this is due to the hard drive in your system failing and not being detected as a boot device (PXE boot is normally set as an option to boot after trying the hard drive then the optical drive)
You can try re-seating the hard disk drive then resetting the BIOS defaults and see if the hard drive is detected and boots, if that fails, then most likely the hard disk drive has failed and you will need to replace the drive, then re-install Windows, all drivers, and all applications.

Sir my inspiron laptop b130, intel pentium processor 1.70 mhz 598 mhz, it is suitable for upgration r not? ram 1gb. 40 gb hard disk.? I need 2 gb ram and 500gb usb hard disk for oracle applications...


Max RAM for that system is 2GB
http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Inspiron%20B130&Cat=RAM

The question is whether there are 500GB hdds for that system. The largest PATA HDD I found was 320 GB
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4600076&CatId=2675

and there is no guarantee the BIOS will recognise a HDD that large as PATA HDDs require BIOS support for the drive size where SATA HDDs will pretty much work.
My recommendation is to retire this system and BUY a new one.

Medion akoya e1210 notebook. failure to boot pxe


Failure to boot PXE 061 is a BIOS message that indicates 2 things:
  1. System failed to boot to the hard drive
  2. System failed to boot to a network connection
The apparent problem is failure to boot to the hard disk. If the system was running yesterday and there have been no hardware changes to the system, then most likely failures are:
  1. HDD failure (Replace the HDD, reinstall OS and applications) I hope you have information backed up.
  2. HDD not being detected by the motherboard due to connection issue (Remove HDD and reseat it, then see if seen in BIOS) If no change replace hard drive, if new drive not seen, replace motherboard

Unable to format, partition,ins. os and boot my toshiba TE2100..


The CMOS needs to be set to first read the CD or DVD drive before it reads the Hard drive. Once your XP disk is in the drive it will boot from the CD drive and setup the computer, The CMOS is acessed by turning on the computer and immediatly pressing either the deleat key or the F! or F2 key try each one till you get to CMOS then look for boot section. Set CD drive to first your HD drive to second.

Old Hard Drive Installation as 2nd Drive


First check your boot sequences. If you want to get it to boot from the defuct PCs HDD you will need to see which is booting first. Bios will remember the actual hard ware by serial etc, not by which is master and slave.

If you just want to run the programs off that drive, then are you running windows?

check out the computer management tools (found in the administrator tools section of the control panel) and there you should be able to use disk management to see what drives are there.

Here you can change drive letters and will be able to see if the drives are being picked up by windows

Defunct drive


You could rebuild the defunct drive with the raid program on your server.

i don't know your type and model of your server.

8488 or 8648 and the model 3 digits.

for this you need serveraid manager

http://www-304.ibm.com/jct01004c/systems/support/supportsite.wss/docdisplay?lndocid=SERV-RAID&brandind=5000008

please do not update your firmware or drivers at this point if applicable.

if rebuild of a defunct drive doesnt work you'll need to change the drive. remember in a raid 5 you need min. 3 drives.
