I had a drive failure on a RAID1 system today and when I replaced the drive (120GB IDE) and went to rebuild the RAID it blue screened at 34%. Beginning physical memory dump. I replaced the drive bay (hot swappable drive bays) and it again crashed at 34%. Ran checkdisk and everything came back fine. Replaced the RAID controller (FastTrack100) and once again....blue screened at 34%. Tried the card in a different slot on the motherboard. Same blue screen. Replaced the memory stick. Same thing. Put the memory stick in a different slot. Blue screen. Every time it's at 34%. :thumbsup: Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

Windows XP. I'm aware the home version has issues in raid image recovery. Other then that. I would hand this over to one of the BC Advisers, I currently use Raid 0 80x5 soon to add one more. Vista Ultimate allows image backups without any fancy settings. So. If I gain a failed drive.. I just replace the drive and restore my whole computer with the image backup from my USB External Hard disk drive.

I hope someone with a setup just like yours can further assist you.

Thanks for the welcome! I guess I should have included the OS - must need more coffee!. It's running Windows 2000 Server.

Did you try updating the controller drivers? I would remove the old, then install the new...rather than installing over.
