SOURCE: getting drive array problem

Even the 1st generation will have a ROM based Hard Drive Array utility which you will need to make yourself familiar with. Find out the hard ware you are dealing with, make sure it is functioning properly, and work your way to the software configuration.

SOURCE: wont boot says array controller wont start and no

Sounds like the RAID controller has failed. I would replace this first as RAID controllers are less expensive than replacing the system board, or the server as a whole.

Suggested: PERC 5i (RAID 0/1/5) or PERC 5iR (RAID 1 or 0 only)

Dell Poweredge 4300 Bootup problem after cmos battery replacement


Check the version for the Raid Controller. This may need to have the firmware to be upgraded. If the controller is removable, take the controller out and then see if the computer will continue past the bios. If the controller is built-in, then disable it in the bios, and try to see if it will get past the controller setup.
On most system I have worked with, if you are booting from a scsi hard drive, then the bios cannot be set to let any IDE to boot, or the bios must be set to no hard drive to boot. There may be two places in the bios which must be set to no hard drive. Another setting which may make a difference, is the scsi boot setting, if it has it. Another chance is that something is wrong with either the cabling or the controller itself.
As far as the jumper, that may be the erase bios jumper. Usually though, you have to move the jumper to one of two, sometimes three or four jumper. You would simply move the jumper to the erase setting, and then move it back. However, by doing that, you will lose all setting which had been set. Also, if the computer will go past the bios when the controller is removed, that could also mean some thing is wrong with a drive, or the boot drive is not set right in the controller bios. If a scsi drive is a boot drive, that boot drive number must be set right in the bios of the controller.

Not getting a drive letter from Compaq SCSI RAID setup


Did you see any new drives in the disk managemen screen? To get to the disk management, hold window key down and hit 'R', then type diskmgmt.msc and hit enter.

If you do see the drive in the lower half of the screen, you need to initialize the drive either as dynamic disk or basic disk. Then you need to add a new partition and format it.

Good luck.

SATA RAID Controller Card Problem?


You are almost there. Go into your BIOS and enable RAID. Then your raid bios should show up on next boot.

Two disks appear with multiple addresses on DEC 3000-900


Looks like it can't find the right disks/partitions to boot from.
The order may be being re-arranged when you attach them all at once.
Could be an issue with identification, are you using device paths
what's your boot setup? Where is the boot manager
installed ....

Computer will not boot.


Form the info you provided, you have a RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) disk array. RAID 0 (striped disks) distributes data across several disks in a way that gives improved speed and full capacity, but all data on all disks will be lost if any one disk fails. Apparently Diagnostics has determined that “Drive 2” is defective. You will have to replace the defective hard drive and reload the Windows operating system.


Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided. Please show your appreciation by rating your experience.
Thank You.

RAID 0 Array disappeared after reboot


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.
