This is not my computer... helping out a co-worker.
1. System originally had XP on a Raid 5 array on a Promise PCI card. PDC20621 chipset.
Windows 7 was Installed on a new SSD. Everything worked for a year and a half.
At some point, windows lost or rejected the Raid driver and will no longer access the XP (now just a data) drive. However, BIOS still accesses the array, and Windows 7 will not boot without it.
A compatible driver does not appear to be available, and windows cannot apparently access the BCD to copy it to the Win7 SSD.
2. BSOD. Seems random. The Promise Raid card passes its self test and shows the array--3 disks with a hot spare-- as normal. Can access the array through its own BIOS on boot. Firewall turns on and off--both Avast and Windows (not on together--testing). Network and CPU activity seem very high at times.
I've run Avast and Malwarebytes and am about to run GMER
Thanks for your assistance
No results from GMER.
Just crashed again:
