Raid 6 will tolerate two simulatneous hard disk failures. So the posibility for data loss is very less. But the rebuilting steps defers for different server products like IBM and DELL. But normaly when u change a new hard disk the server will automatically starts the rebuilding process.

3 drives, and win7 can only find one drive


Hi

You give no specification information about either the drives (SATA or IDE) or the computer.

If the hard drives are IDE, look at the jumper settings and ensure that the Primary drive is set to Master, and the Secondary and Tertiary drives to Slave.

You don't say if the Win 7 is a recent upgrade and all 3 drives showed in the previous operating system or if all 3 drives showed previously in Win 7.

See if Win 7 can see all the drives and the status of your hard drives in Disk Management:

Start > (Category View) Control Panel > System & Maintenance > Administrative Tools > Create & Format Hard Disk Partitions > Disk Management

Without more background information, this sounds like BIOS settings issue.

Enter BIOS by tapping the appropriate key POST screen (usually DEL or F2) and look to see if the RAID or IDE/SATA configuration settings are correct and try different settings > F10 > Enter.

If none of these solve the problem, look internally and check your hard drive data and power connections (it is easy to work inside a computer and forget to reconnect hard drive cables). Try alternative SATA or IDE cables.

I hope this helps.

I have a failed drive on my server 2003 standard edition, may someone can help me on how to replace the bad hard drive to a new one and rebuild again my raid, i am using software raid 1. thanks stanley


depends if the raid configuration is made by hardware or software
if its made by hardware you can find how to define the raid in the bios or using the server's start disc to start the windows 2003 installation

I have recently purchased a new HDD (I now have 2 Hitachi P7K500 HDDs) and built it into my system. I have first formatted the HDD I already had, then configured my BIOS for use of RAID 0. My mobo (MSI...


1. If you are just setting up your computer to have an a regular HDD and Backup HDD, i would think you should be able to set that up by booting onto your computer regularly, go to start, then into My Computer and right clicking on the HDD you want to set as Raid 1.

But if just want that other HDD for Space on your computer, all you had to do was plug it in and there you go... extra space.

Now if your installing windows 7 on the other drive i would find that pointless because you already have it on your first drive unless your putting 2 operating systems onto your computer.

Hope this helps.

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.

Installing ubuntu on Raid 0


Ok I have Duo booted ubuntu a couple of times now. When you were partitioning did you use the automatic or he manual? Since you have two hard disks, I will assume you use a desktop and you know how to take it apart. So, if you did automatics the bestt I can tell you is to swith your hard drives around physically and if that fails try switching g the boot menu order. If you used manual partitioning then when you were creating the ext3 partition you did not type / in the text box labeled Moint Point (that's the best I can help you) I hope this has fixed your problem. GO UBUNTU

I can not install windows XP on Toshiba Satellite U300, windows


You must have latest Windows Xp CD .
Latest Motherboard chipset does not recognise hard disk without proper sata raid or sata driver. So you can install sata driver if u have USB floppy drive by downloading latest Sata raid to floppy. At the time of installation you will see a message press f6 to if u need to install raid driver.then press f6 asking for floppy drive and floppy insert press enter to continue.

Serial ATA (SATA) drives are the latest in the hard drive fashion and, in theory, installing Windows on the drive should prove relatively simple. The problem is that Windows XP doesn’t contain the necessary drivers to allow windows to see the drive so that Windows can install it.

I found the procedure below on an XP support website. I have not tried this procedure but after reviewing I fairly certain this should work for you.

1/ Copy the SATA drivers (these can usually be found on your pc or motherboard's support disk. Usually these consist of PIDE/SATA Folders and TXTsetup.oem files. Alternatively they may have been supplied on a separate CD that accompanied your SATA drive, assuming you purchased it separately from the pc.)
2/ Insert the Windows XP CD (full retail version – you should not need to follow these instructions if your pc came with a recovery disk) into the CD-ROM and Reboot your PC
3/ Watch carefully as the Windows XP installation progresses and look carefully at the text at the bottom of each screen.
4/ At the Windows Setup Screen (this should be the second screen after installation starts) you should see, at the bottom of the screen) a message saying “Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver.”
5/ At this point press the F6 button
6/ When the next screen appears press S to specify an additional device
7/ Now insert the floppy disk containing the SATA drivers into your floppy drive
8/ Windows will next ask you to select a driver from the provided list
9/ Select VIA Serial (or whichever controller your motherboard supports) ATA RAID Controller (Windows XP)
10/ The SATA drivers on your floppy disk should now load
11/ After the drivers have loaded Windows XP will recognise your SATA hard drive and you can continue installing the Windows XP operating system

Installing XP on a preinstalled vista comp


Go to manufacturers web site download raid drivers, specifically the F6 disk driver and make a floppy with it. When you start xp cd it will say press F6 to add disk drivers, hit F6 and wait until it asks for floppy. If you don't have a floppy, get one, because if you need the driver, it is a difficult process to make it work without floppy driver disk. Some manufacturers have a way to do this with a memory stick, but I have never had much luck that way. The last way is to create a new xp disk with the drivers slipstreamed in. You can get free nLite software to do that at http://www.nliteos.com/
