when you select the os repair option, you have to press F6 to add the raid/ sata drivers for your controller. similar in vista, were it asks you if you want to add drivers vs. the F6.
another option would be to slipstream them into the installation.
is there any option that allows you to boot into your mirror drives instead of the primary boot drive set? if not, i would try to boot into each raid0 set by itself, with the other set disconnected.
also, if you can recover anything, you will be able to recover everything. i doubt you will be able to get usable data of the disks without the os running, meaning if you would be able to get data off you might as well be running it from os.
make sure that all cables have a good connection.
is this on a pci-x card?
was the 4th drive run as a hot spare?
i'd rather get in touch with silicon image then addonics. addonics is just a distributor/ retailer.
same here, try the os repair with raid drivers. since this is a 3 disk raid5 it should still boot and run even if one disk failed. if more failed thats a different picture.
I went to check all the cabling again one of the cable had some while gunk on one of the pins I tried to scrape it off and it looks like I bent one of the pins down. Now when it's connected the bios gets stuck
Now the PC still won't boot but it does recognize my fourth standalone as a valid drive.
So I'm going to pick up a SATA cable tomorrow.
God I hate buying cables locally. I gaurantee you this damn cable will be 20 bucks lol
I could order it now for probably 4 bucks lol
