Switched to AHCI from RAID0, Recoverable?


I had to restore my bios to optimal settings, but in doing so, I forgot to change back to RAID mode, and by default, my bios is in AHCI. So, I switched back to RAID mode, but the set of disks fail to run now in that mode.

Is there any way to recover this?

  1. Ok, I think I figured it out. It says bootable now, but I've got the Blue screen on windows load up.
  2. I sincerely hope that you have backups. My usual reaction to a Windows that loads part-way but fails to complete is a repair install, booting from the distro, but in this case I would not - further writing to the damaged array may just cause more damage.

    Most cases that I have seen of booting with RAID drives taken out of RAID have been pretty hairy. Let me poke around for some of the better success stories...

    Good luck! Tell us what works.
  3. Thanks for the reply... what I ended up doing was recovering the important stuff through software. Then, clean install. Decided I won't be doing RAID0 again.
