Gigabyte DS3 (rev. 3.3) RAID0 problem

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I put together a PC with a DS3 and some 500GB Seagate 7200.10 in RAID0, and after clearing my CMOS due to pushing memory too far, I get a disk read error. As it turns out, only HDD1 is in the array, and HDD0 is sitting off to the side like an idiot. Should I delete the array and create a new one with the same block and stripe sizes? Is there a way of forcing HDD0 back in there? Is there any way at all to fix this without a large chance of data corruption? Jeez, next time I'm using a PCI RAID controller. Thanks for any help.

Go into your raid bios and see if you can re-add the "missing" drive without deleting the array. On that board it should be CTRL + G after the POST screen in case you didn't remember

That's where I found the info that my first HDD "escaped". I see no option to do so; the only ones here are:

Create RAID Disk Drive
Delete RAID Disk Drive
Revert HDD to Non-RAID
Solve Mirror Conflict
Rebuild Mirror Drive
Save and Exit Setup
Exit Without Saving

The only ones that don't produce a "not enough drives" error are Delete, Revert, and the exit options.

I know I can't help you beyond deleting the array and re-creating it. Hopefully someone else can.

Would there be any chance of my data being intact after that delete and re-create? I remember the stripe and block size, etc.

Now that I think about it, possibly but it may require a bit of work. When you create a new array it asks if you want to "clear all data". You obviously have to hit yes but it does it instantly. A full format would take hours, so it is obviously just doing something like wiping the partition tables.

You could probably find a simple program to rebuild the partition tables or something like that. Thankfully I've never had to deal with anything like this but I know there's some good utilities out there.

Just out of curiosity, do you use a PCI RAID controller? On my main computer, I have the same setup, except with a Rev. 2.0 DS3 and two 250GB 7200.10s. Thankfully, I've never had to clear CMOS on that one!

No, I've always used onboard raid. So far I've had great results with onboard raid on:

Biostar Tforce-6100 939
Gigabyte GA-965-DS3
Gigabyte GA-P35 DS3R

I do cmos clears all the time, even on that very board, and not one problem yet. (although I did have rev. 1.3 and bios F11)

Hmm. Maybe I messed it up because I tried to boot the machine before setting the SATA mode to RAID/IDE (I forgot ).
