Default Intel SATA RAID Failure -- Need Help

Hi,

It looks like one of the disks in a simple mirror failed. The Intel
RAID Utility doesn't seem to have any tests I can run so I assume Disk 1
needs to be replaced. If I replace the disk, do I need to use the same
model disk and size? Report details below.

TIA,
Dan

If I am reading that report correctly, you will need the replacement to be
another SATA I 120 GB hard drive.

As to whether it *has* to be the same make and model - no, but you risk
compatibility and performance issues the farther you get away from the
original make/model/firmware. I would personally replace it with the same
make and model if you can and if you want to go that route.

It appears that you may have an older system with a 28-bit LBA support
limiting your new hard drive to 137 GB or less, but I could be wrong about
that. This line implies that:

> Disk Size (28-bit maximum): 111.8 GB (120,000,000,000 bytes)


The ICH5R Southbridge *does* support 48-bit LBA.

XP service pack 2 supports 48-bit LBA, so you are OK there.

If you replace the drive with a similar make and model, your other hard
drive might not have that many hours left. An investment in two new 250 GB
or larger drives and a BIOS update might be a better long term solution,
but that depends entirely on your specific situation.

You might look into whether a BIOS upgrade exists for your system allowing
48 LBA support that would break the 137 GB barrier, if needed. What is
your system / motherboard and do you know if it will support hard drives
greater than 137 GB? A BIOS flash if it goes terribly wrong can mean that
you will need a new BIOS or motherboard so it's not a risk free process.
It is relatively low risk if done by a experienced tech or if you are tech
savvy and follow the motherboard makers instructions very carefully.

It's a Dell Dimension XPS Gen 2 system using Bios A06, the latest. It
looks like I can use drives larger than 137GB. So I am thinking of
movinf to 750 GB Seagates...

That's what I would consider if the original drive was not still under
warranty. You might check to see if the old drive is still covered by
warranty:

http://support.seagate.com/customer/...validation.jsp

If you do decide to get two new drives, read this first! Apparently
there is an issue with motherboards using the ICH5R Southbridge and SATA
Gen II drives:

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/24...ble-sata-ports

The solution is that you would need to make sure that you can force Gen I
(150 MB/sec) on the new drive. Verify before you buy that the new hard
drives have a jumper setting that will allow you to force Gen I.

Have Fun!

One more thing - you might check in your BIOS to see if you have the option
to force GEN I 150 MB/sec. You should be able to theoretically use a GEN
II 300 MB/sec drive without the jumper if that is the case.
