    Broken RAID Array

    Err i think i borked my RAID 0 array, quite suprised it broke so easily.

    I turned on my comp and one of the SATA connectors had sumhow come out.

    .................the bios flashed up 'incomplete raid set!....' im punching F4 to enter RAID utility but windooze tries to boot anyway and as u guessed it didnt happen. Anyways, i power off comp and plug the SATA cable back in, now it shows both drives in RAID utility but drive 0 isnt displaying its name properly =/ its abit jumbled and windooze wont boot.

    Is there anyway to fix this? or is my only option to recreate the array? also can i retrieve any files from the broked array?

    RAID 0 Sux!

    Yes, you need to repair the raid... Hit F4 about 50 times! when your in the setup there should be a "fix" or "repair" or "rebuild" option! And I too have troble getting into the raid menu! I just hit F4 before the screan appears! and about 50 times after!
