I have a problem with a system I built a few years ago.
I wouldn't post, and I eventually traced this fault down to a problem with the BIOS, losing its settings, and the default settings not being compatible with the DDR2 memory I had fitted.
I can now get the system to post but the system won't boot.
I have 2 Samgsung 500gb in a raid 1.
I reconfigured the BIOS for the raid, when I boot I can get the Intel Storage Manager option, ICH9R.
It shows the raid volume status as degraded, but bootable yes.
It shows the physical drive status in the raid 1, its shows one disk with the status Member Disc, and the other disk as Error Occured.
If I try yo boot I get the message: Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected device and press a key.
I can boot from the windows vista DVD and, when I try to the system recovery option it can't find the hard drive that it's installed on.
If I click on the load drivers tab it can see the c drive with the vista installation ?
Any help on what I need to do to get tit to boot and see the raid.
