BIOS Flash : Lost RAID0 - Remind Me Plz..

449 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Ictinike
Hey all,

My sig rig board, UD3P, is now showing a disk of my 3 in RAID0 as `non-member disk` which was working quite fine before a BIOS update.

I remember learning here there are some tools out there that can help recover this and I would very much like to find them however the latest changes to the forum won't let me search past 5 pages and I know it was some time ago someone here had the same issue on an Intel RAID controller.

Does anyone remember or have a link please? This whole non-member disk thing sucks a mighty big one and now I'm down until I can repair it or re-install everything

I think Omega had this problem and quite a few people helped.. I even posted in the thread I believe but again I cannot search past 5 pages of results.

Help if you can, thanks in advance!

I have had a problem like this and all I had to do was go back into the bios and set it back to raid from ide. I'm sure you have checked but it's worth a shot, and a bump for others to see.
Just to make sure and please don't get mad but you know that everything reverts back to stock and you must re-enable RAID again in BIOS right?
Just making sure.
Yep, did that X2s3w4

I'm back!

Some great bit of help from EXTREME Overclocking Site.. Followed the directions and while I had my drives in different order a few cable swaps and it finally recognized like below and was able to do them as listed and recovered the RAID0 Array from the dreaded Intel IHCR10 `non-member disk` error..

Wow.. I'm quite thankful!

1. Reset both HDs to non-member using Intel BIOS utility - the utility warns that all data will be lost - in fact only metadata is lost and can be recreated using steps below.

2. Create a new array with identical settings as the broken array. It is critical that the HDs are in the array the same order as before. I was reconnecting the drives several times and lost track of correct order. Because of that I had to go through the steps twice (I guessed wrong the first time).

3. Get TestDisk from http://www.cgsecurity.org. I used Windows version (I installed a new Vista on a separate HD for this purpose).

4. Run TestDisk according to steps on the web site. If your HDs are connected in correct order, TestDisk should find the lost partition(s) within a few seconds. It ran for several hours, scanning my array and never found anything because I had HDs were connected in wrong order. After I changed the order and restarted from step #1 TestDisk found the missing partition immediately.

5. Have the TestDisk write the fixed partition table to the drive and reboot.

6. Now all your data on the array should be readable but the system might not boot (it didn't for me).

7. Run Vista repair from installation CD to fix the MBR.

8. Last but not least, send a donation to Mr. Grenier, the author of TestDisk.
