(2) Seagate Barracuda Raid 0, OS won't boot?

1063 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  raptor_pa
I have an Alienware Aurora, running (2) Seagate Barracuda 500gb in Raid 0.

Everything was fine, until I tried to turn the PC on yesterday, and it just won't boot.

It boots off a CD, and detects the drives, etc, and even SEES THE RAID!

When I go into the RAID options, and select the correct RAID to boot from, I just get a black screen, when I push the power button, the PC instantly restarts, showing me it is not getting into the software... BUT IT SEES THE RAID!

Is there a way to repair the raid boot, or is that not the problem?


Thanks so much!

Download the bootable seatools diagnostics disk and test both drives, if they pass all tests, which I expect they will, then you probably need to do a repair installation of windows to rebuild the boot sector.
