After installing a new CPU and rerouting some cables (which means unplugging the HDDs and switching around sata cables) My RAID 0 (striped 128kb) array is not working because one of the 2 disks is not showing as a member disk in the configuration screen at boot. I don't want to recreate the array because it would probably erase my data. Both of the drives appear, but only one is a Member disk, and not the other. Is there a way to recover the data on these or get the array working(very important)?

ASUS P5E Deluxe
Core 2 Quad Q9550 (shouldn't matter)
4x250GB Seagate SATA

Yes I have tried that. It does not seem to matter what port the HDD is plugged into, because i switched both of them to different ports, and one was still raid and the other wasn't.

I'm having the same problem. I didn't even change ports I only updated my Bios. Now one disk is still a member and the other one isn't. Did you ever find an answer?

the raid configuration is broken now. it is no way to repair by the controller and keep the exist data. If your data is very important. send it out to professional data recovery company.
