Boot failure after Disabled RAID 0 Choices - Page 2

Chozart....

Thanks for sticking around, yea, i'm not even thinking of touching these two hard drives. I think i might have to send them to seagate.com data recovering team, they offers free data recovery determination, and i'll play stupid and take the hdd back with their report to a local data recovery center for reasonable price rate if the successful rate is high , cause i know seagate.com charing well $1200 to get my data recovered.


or should i try the software first?, since these softwares, has a demo version to try out to see if its could determine if the RAID can be re-construct, then purchase the license for the purpose of backing up the data????

Chozart... since you are here i need help install OS

as you may already know, i can no longer boot up from my Raid 0, and i trying to install WinXP on one of the IDE/ATA harddrive... but it doesn't allow me tooo

here is the message, after i pick the 300gbs Seagate IDE/ATA to be installed

"Windows XP Professional Setup

To Install Windows XP on the partition you selcted,
Setup must write some startup fiels to the following disk:

381555 MB Disck 0 at Id 0 on bus 0 on atapi [MBR]

However, this disk dos not contain a Windows XP-compatibale
parition.

To continue installing Windows XP, return to the partion selection screen and create a Windows XP-compaitbnle parition on the disk aove. If there is no free space on the disck, delete an existing patition, and then create a new one.

To return to the partition selections screen, press ENTER."




Usually, after i pick the harddrive it should prompt to format the hard drive as FAT or NTFS, but i got the message instead...

What up with the "Setup must write some startup files to the following disk:", <<<---what is the startup files

and, "However, this disk does not contain a Windows XP-Compatible partition"<<<---this is odd

i did delete the partition and created a new partition but still getting the message. what is up with this system

No, $500 for that kind of software is a ripoff.

Don't pay anyone anything unless they gaurentee recovery (if they fail to recover it, you don't pay).
