During a recent crash I lost one of my hard drives. It does not show on the screen (win2k,sp2) but in add/remove hardware and in device manager it shows as "working properly". But in control panel > admin tools > computer management > disk management it is listed as "dynamic foreign". But when I try to import it I get a msg "disk group has no valid configuration copies". How do I get it back online? I have no old records on a floppy. TIA

Welcome to Tech Support Forums ernie..............:D

Take a look in device manager under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.

Right click on Primary and Secondary IDE Channels then properties and see if the drive is recognized in advanced settings.

How are your drives setup in your machine?

Could you also post some more info on your system specs.

Can I send you attachments with pix ? I have Win2k Prof SP2 , 3 IDE hard drives (1 basic, 1 dynamic (both working) and 1 dynamic which I cannot bring online and 1 CD. I checked the IDE controllers in device manager, they seem to be OK but in Event Viewer "driver detected controller error". It's sort of strange, all the diagnostics seem to be OK, the drives, the controllers except in Event Viewer.I think the old setup with 3 drives has somehow been lost-perhaps it may be somewhere in the registry. Anyway, thanks for replying I don't see many replies, apparently it's not an easy problem.

Speedo, thanks for your interest. I finally bit the bullet and reformatted my drive-fortunately I had multiple backups. Apparently, it was not an easy problem, MS even suggested I buy a new drive. Thanks again. ernie
