|i've unplugged my two RAID 0 drives from my XP machine... accidentally (i was unaware i had a raid 0 direct from dell)... upon plugging them back in only one seems visible, it's too much of a coincidence that the drive failed when i unplugged it but i guess anything is possible|
what's happening is if i plug drive a (half the Raid 0) in i go past the dell splash screen, into setup and i can see the drive.
if i turn off the machine, switch drives (same power and sata data cables) and turn the machine back on, it hangs at the Dell splash screen, the progress bar goes to 100 and it freezes, fan is running fine.
i restarted and pushed f2 right away and the top right changes to "entering setup" but it still freezes when the progress bar reaches full... freezes even with the text "entering setup" at the top.
so it seems only the one drive is causing this freeze, i'm hoping it can be fixed because while i do have backups there's a few days work on there i could really use.
