Weird RAID issue

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So, I went about reinstalling Windows 7 yesterday evening.

Everything was working fine until I accidently removed myself from the administrator group at 3AM and wasn't thinking about what I was doing.

Anyways, this morning, I went to unplug everything (externally IE: Monitor, USB Cables, etc) to clean out the innards of the machine using some keyboard cleaner/canned air. Plugged the machine back up, and went to reinstall, no drives were showing up. Checked the RAID array, gone. Alright, I was going to have to reinstall anyways.

So I go create a RAID array again, install Windows 7, install all updates, install some drivers and programs, restart a couple times. Peachy. Go to restart the last time, bam the array is gone.

This has happened twice, so I am not sure what the hell is happening, but it is becoming frustrating. I am not sure what the problem is.

I have tried replacing the cables on the hard drives in a hope to see if that would fix the problem, but it didn't. I put this thread here, as all the hard drives have a decent SMART status, and I am using the integrated RAID function.

Machine in question is the sig rig below.

Machine in question is the sig rig below.
Check all cables, keyboard keys, and connections
Set motherboard to defaults
Reflash the motherboard BIOS
This is my suggestion with one drive plug in at a time run manufacture diagnostics and then use the raid bios to complete clean the hard drives and then set up raid and try a windows 7 reinstall
Some time there are corrupt file on the drives that the windows OS will try to save and reuse
Only have a dvd and the raid system you plan to put the OS on plug in at the time of the install
You need to clean the hard drives that are plug in at the time of the install
