"media test failure, check cable"

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have two Samsung Spinpoints in RAID 0. I decided to get a new case for my rig, the Corsair 650D. So I transferred everything into the 650D, turned it on, and I get a "pxe-e61 media test failure, check cable" error.

I googled this message and there were things like check cabling, boot order, HDDs. I've done all of that. Used new and known working cables on both drives, I made sure the boot order was correct, and I just finished running the Samsung utility to check both drives, which resulted in no errors found. Both drives are detected correctly in the BIOS.

I'm out of ideas. Can anyone please help me?

Reading comprehension failure on my part.

I would consider resetting the CMOS, but I haven't done so with a RAID array, so I'm not sure if that would cause you to lose settings or not.
