Morning.

What a great day. I can do some gaming, instead of bothering with reinstallation/configuration and whatnot of fresh OS install.

Of course this couldnt happen without great help from Ictinike, for what i am really thankfull. I owe you big time mate

I just wanted to say Ictinike, WOW, that was extremely nice of you helping that guy getting his RAID sorted. Also your guide helped me recover my RAID 0 failure. Thanks. +Rep.

First things first. Turn off RAID and boot the PC. Go into the BIOS and see if the drives are visible.

If they're not visible, one of them has crapped itself adn you need an RMA, if they're visible, try setting RAID back again.

If, after that, it still doens't work, then I'm afraid your array has gotten corrupt and you need to start over
I was about to post about my RAID 0 getting corrupt, but decided to just quote you. This is exactly what happen. Ive been slowly upgrading my PC the last few weeks. I bought 2 OCZ Vertex SSD drives and put them in RAID 0 config. Everything was running top shape till i decided to use Windows 7 RC. Thats when all the problems started. My MBR would corrupt every time i would shut down the PC. So i broke the raid, rebuilt it and then re-installed Windows 7 again. So far everything was cool. I decided to go the Frys Electronics (California enthusiast chain) cause i was told the CM HAF 932 was on sale at 114$. So i went, sure enough...on SALE!!!! I purchased it, got home and started to migrate from my POS Antec P180. I recorded the ports that my RAID was connected to. Upon boot up of the new case install, the raid was corrupt. JUST....LIKE...THAT! Same everything, different case. Just goes to show how...flimsy these raid builds are (or at least mine is). Sorry for the long post...its Monday, im at work...and im bored.

Hi,

Nice guide. You have given me some....hope.

I am trying to recover my RAID 5 array after what was thought to be a motherboard failure.

Turns out it was my CPU. After replacing the CPU I am met with two of my five disks being labeled as non-member disks.

The board I am using is an ABIT IP35 Pro with ICH9R Controller.

I actually went and also bought a Gigabyte EP45-UD3LR which has the ICH10R Controller (but its back in its box as there's nothing wrong with my ABIT as first thought).

Is it possible to run through your process using the ICH9R Controller?

Thank you for your help.

Hey all!
I just ran into this thread as i'm trying to reset a raid5 that has the same problem.
I reset a new raid5 identically, booted up on my other HD in vista (safe mode) and ran the testdisk program, found my partition and files, wrote the partition data (at least I think I did)...

Then, when I reboot, no matter what, I see my raid5 marked as "initialize" and then in vista, it starts initializing... (which is why I was using vista in safe mode)

Anyone would mind giving me a little help? I'm stuck here...
(By the way, what is it doing exactly, when it "initializes"??

Same thing happened to me, did you lose all your data?

Hey Guys,

I have a similar problem after a bios upgrade to F11 on a GA-EX58-UD3R. I was able to get the system booted back into Win 7 by changing the Bios back to Raid but I have one disk that says Non Raid Member in both the Raid Bios and Intel Matrix Storage Utility. Will the guide work in my situation as well?

I Have the same problem ! I solve it with little different steps! Here whats happened:

I have RAID10 ( 0+1) on a GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD3H with Windows 7 64 bits. Also it's the OS boot drive, and last backup made in 4 months ago bigeyedsmiley.png

I hit accidentaly my PC Power button and it got hibernate mode ( I never use that! )
When I turned it back on, it's asked about boot disk.
In BIOS configuration it was not anymore in RAID mode.mad.gif
I switched it back, and in RAID Setup Utility (CTRL+I ) all HDs was in non-RAID doh.gif

After reading all posts about RAID BIOS lost setup I decide to re-create my RAID10 with same configuration was before and got scared about the message: "YOU WILL LOST ALL DATA ARE YOU SURE?." I closed my eyes and pressed "Y"

After boot again, I used Windows 7 boot disk pre-install kit with pen drive containing testdisk ( for windows). There I saw all files and got relived rolleyes.gif !


But re-creating file system and MBR seems not to work, after that even PC BIOS ( hitting DEL like hell !! LOL ) wont get in.
I was geting a black screen after RAID Setup Utility prompts out. I had to destroy again, by switching back the HDs in non-RAID ( Raid Configuration Utility (CTRL+I) still works. And than I re-created again RAID 10.

In second time I used Windows 7 boot install disk and ask to recovery/repair Windows, using boot problem issues, I think it re-created th partition and MBR and worked like a charm ! thumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gif

So, if anyone has this problem, it's very simple to solve, the steps are:

- Re-create you RAID with same configuration was before.
- Use your OS install boot disk and recover/repair your instalation by choossing boot problems.

PS: The only thing I thought was very strange was: Why hibernate action on your PC can destroy your RAID configuration ?
