Question about Promise FastTrak S150 TX2Plus Serial ATA Controller

RAID 0 Array disappeared after reboot

Does this mean I'm screwed? PC is Intel P4 2.6GHz 800FSB on an MSI Neo 865PE2 motherboard. HD's are 2xSeagate 120GB 7200RPM/8MB Cache.

I've tried the rebuild array option, but it says recovery not applicable. In the RAID menu it says device ID#1 has "failed or disconnected...". I've also tried swopping the SATA data cables for new ones, but to no avail.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

I would try the hard drive on another sata controller/port to verify that the bad drive is in fact bad. If it is really bad, then no there is nothing you can do but replace the drive and recreate the array (losing all data!).

You can not 'recover' a failed RAID-0 array because there is no parity or mirror data on an extra disk like there is with the other RAID modes. This is why people recommend against using RAID-0 for important data (unless you take frequent backups): RAID-0 actually increases your likelihood of losing your data. Statistically speaking, you are multiply the failure rates of each individual drive together.

How to set up a Raid 5 on a MSI A88XM-E35?


Your motherboard does support RAID:
"SATA1~6 ports support RAID 0/1/5/10 modes by AMD A88X"
Source: http://www.msi.com/product/mb/A88XME35.html#hero-specification

However, software RAID isn't supported in Windows 7 home premium. So are you asking how to setup the RAID array using the hardware support provided by your motherboard or are you looking for software RAID support?

Seems like your processor is getting overheated.
Check the heatsink for proper installation, and if possible apply fresh heat release compound.
Also make sure the fan is working and correctly attached.
