DISK READ ERROR - RAID 0

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just cloned my 256gb ssd drive with Acronis. I forgot to copy over the 100mb partition when I cloned it back over to 2 ssd's in raid 0. Same motherboard. Same computer. I just added a 2nd 256gb ssd drive. So I had to use partition wizard to copy it over to the 512gb raid 0 drives. And Hopefully i'm posting this in the correct section of the forums.

Still won't boot.
BOOTMGR IS MISSING error

After doing some research I believe I have this version of Windows 7 Ultimate. 6.1.7600.16385

I no longer can find the original boot disc and I never made a backup or anything. Silly me.
But I do have a torrented Windows disk just so I can try booting but I get (if it goes through)

STARTUP REPAIR CANNOT REPAIR THIS COMPUTER AUTOMATICALLY

PEN: startup repair offline
6.1.7600.16385
6.1.7600.16385
unknown
-1
external media
1
missing bootmanager
os ver 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
locale id 1033


I can't get into command prompt unless I try to load a system image and then cancel. Because I get the "the version of system recovery options is not compatible with your version of windows"

But somehow I managed to fix the BOOTMGR problem.
Now I get a "Disk Read Error"

And bcdedit.exe /scaon os gives me Total Identified Windows Installs 0.
But it shows up in the "repair your computer" when I use a windows 7 cd

I also get
Unable to run chkdsk hard drive write protected

AND
Windows cannot recover master file table

AND
failed to transfer logged messages to the event log with status 50
​​


Please anything so I don't have to wipe the drive frown.gif
I'm desperate. I can't re install windows I have too many programs I can't ever recover since I don't have the disk for them any longer. But I have a bad feeling that if I try to clone through again, the same thing will happen.







Everything I have tried and no luck.

You can't clone a Windows install to a raid 0 array and have it be bootable.
When you install to a raid o array, the install program rewrites the boot sectors on both drives to make the array bootable.
But it can't do that until the raid drivers are installed at the beginning of the install process.
Your boot sectors are not raid 0.

There may be a fix, but I'm not aware of one.

As a guess I'd try setting up the array first, somehow, then clone to it. But I don't know fore sure if that would work.

Any workaround usually causes many issues. Recommend just a fresh install.

I had windows temporarily installed on the raid 0 array. I just needed it there for one day so I could clone everything over from my copy using Acronis and not needing a 3rd drive.


So can I somehow manually install the raid 0 drivers?? How on earth do I find them anyways?

If I do a fresh install, is there a way I could clone over individual programs?

The raid drivers are included as part of Windows (beyond XP). The install program gives you the option to install them.
Or you cam download the from either the motherboard or chipset manufacturer's site nand install then during a windows install.

Manually install the raid drivers? Sure, but if you create a raid 0 array it won't be bootable. The driver has to be there during the Windows install so the install program can see the array and set it up to be bootable. You can manually add the drivers to an existing Windows OS, but you will be limiter to a non bootable raid (0,1,5,10 etc.)

So there's no other choice now.


But cam I at least somehow clone program/program files over after I installed a fresh OS? So I don't need to install all programs again?

You can clone data, but not programs. For example, you can clone MS Excel spreadsheets, but you can't clone MS Excel.
You can't clone any program that makes changes to the registry when it installs.

Okay, so I re installed windows but when I try to install a program, I get this.

The installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu


I already did the "take ownership" of ProgramData, but I still can't install! AHH!



I'm trying to install UWC and I have had it working before! What do I do?
