System as in sig. Being apparently not overly bright, I was busy pulling the Palomino XP2100+ from my system this morning to send it off to it's new owner and prepare for the arrival of the TBRED 2100+ replacement, when I decided to go into my BIOS and break my RAID1 array. In the past, I have always done this by unplugging the hidden drive, then breaking the array once my HPT374 controller detected the problem on boot. However, this time I went into the HPT BIOS and deleted the array, mistakenly figuring that the data loss warning message applied only to RAID0 or other spanning type arrays. Oops! Now I am of course getting the cannot find bootable disk type message from my computer. Also, the CPU is out of it now, so I will not be able to resume work on it until after the new one arrives.
My question is: Can I recover my data, either by using the Repair Installation feature or the Recovery console? I do have a backup image of the drive, but it is 2 or 3 weeks old. I would actually like to load XP fresh anyhow, but would like to be able to recover my current data.
Signed - not too bright this Monday! :oops:
