I have a Vista OS on a Dell. It has two hard drives and one has failed. I now get BSOD. Any way to recover this?

Can you give a model number of the Dell?

 

The BSOD happens at boot up? Do you still get the BSOD if you detach the failed drive? Is the failed drive your OS drive?

 

What stop code is shown on the screen?

It is a Dell Studio Mdl#DCMA with 1.2 TB storage capacity. Startup I get error message (Screen 1)on Port 1 then it goes to password and asks for type of startup. I choose normal startup and it goes to Microsoft load screen. It loads up Vista and about 20 seconds later goes to BSOD(screen 2). If I disconnect HD Port 1 then I get screen 3 and screen 4 below. Is there a way to just go to the one Hard Drive? I do not need the storage space.

Your attachments did not post. If a Dell tap F12 at boot and run through the diagnostics. I could not find anything on that model number. Dell Studio DCMA? The closest I could find is the Dell Studio 540 Desktop.

 

Is this a RAID setup?

That error code indicates a failed drive. I do not have much experience with RAID but according to the below link any data on a failed RAID0 drive is gone. RAID0 is not redundant. Even data on the good drive would be hard to recover.

 

http://www.freeraidrecovery.com/library/raid0-recovery.aspx

 

RAID 0 member disk failure

Since RAID 0 arrays are non-redundant, then if one of the member disks fails, then data that was on the failed disk is lost forever. Having data from the rest of the member disks you can try to recover files. However, only the files which are smaller than (N-1)*(block size) can be recovered. Even files smaller than that limit can be unrecoverable if the part of the file happens to be on a failed disk.

So in general, if one of the member disks fails beyond repair, it is impossible to recover data from RAID 0.
