no beep on boot-up, nothing to the monitor or keyboard (checked that these are working on other systems), reseated the CPU, reset the CMOS, tried to boot with only one RAM stick and then both RAM interchanged and no configuration works, changed all the cables.
Can you tell me more about "external adapter/enclosure for the Hard Drive(s)"?
the only thing that will throw you off is the RAID configuration. RAID 0 is "striped". Which means some data is written on one HD and some written on the other HD. If one HD fails, then the data is basically lost..... didn't think of this before.... since you are using RAID 0, I doubt the external HD things will be able to help you much.
you could get data off the 750GB... but the two 300GB would be tricky.... I don't know if you could buy 2 external adapters and enable RAID 0 on those 2 USB HD's..... never tried it
I have another computer that is configured with RAID 0, what do you think are the risks of disabling the hard drives to that computer and, using the adapters, boot with these hard drives. I don't think the hard drives have failed. Can you see any issues this might cause?
The RAID 0 drives have the OS on them. They are the same OS, Windows XP. I imagine there could be missing drivers on System #2 if I tried to boot with the hard drives from System #1, depending on the other hardware attached to that system.
Since I configure them to be very similar, I am wondering if they could be similar enough to get the data off them.
both the BAD Raid 0 and GOOD Raid 0 hard drives contain the OS's..? that sucks.
you probably have different motherboards in each system(?). So if you remove the 2 HD's from the good system and put the 2 HD's from the bad system in it then you probably wouldn't be able to boot properly.(because the Mobo's are different).
You could try it, but doubtful it will work.(try it, it won't hurt) just make sure you have the 2 BAD Hd's visible in the RAID configuration utility as RAID 0.
