Unplugged SATA cable (PWR OFF), experiencing problems with RAID 0 array

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
While working inside of my case, the SATA cable for my 2nd drive connected in RAID 0 came loose, and without noticing the loose connected I booted up the system to encounter a "drive offline" error with my RAID 0 volume.

I promptly shut down, reconnected the drive (PWR OFF), and tried again. The RAID 0 volume was recovered, but I still could not boot into Windows 7x64. I received the following error at the Hardware Monitor screen during boot cycle.
Quote:
BOOTMGR is missing.

In order to troubleshoot, popped in Windows 7 x64 BootCD to check to see if Windows was able to "see" the OS. Unsuccessful until I re-installed RAID drivers at the Windows Repair dialogue.

I rebooted, but this time the system hung at the Hardware Monitor boot screen (no error codes).

After running Bootrec command from Windows 7 LiveCD, produced following output.
Quote:
C:\>bootrec/fixboot
The operation completed successfully.

Please wait, since this may take a while...

However, to no avail. On reboot the system cannot see the logical drive. Detects windows partition after re-installing drivers at Windows repair dialogue, but upon reboot the system cannot locate the OS.

Delete and recreate the raid 0 and install the OS again. Make sure both drives are blank before recreating raid0!

Surely a loose cable could not have corrupted the data from my RAID 0 volume. While bits are written in parallel, no write operations took place since it was all low-level (Unless I'm wrong?)
