Now I'm pretty sure they were removed from the RAID array because of a BIOS update. Assuming that's the case, f there's a way to recreate the RAID using IRST without losing data, it would be lovely. If not, I just need the array properties for 3rd party reconstruction.
First, according to the report, there's no RAID configured because I intentionally disabled IRST in order to be able to at least try to salvage some of the lost data using 3rd party software .
Second, before concluding that the information cannot be retrieved and I should give up my data (it will take me a couple of months to restore it from "backups"), let's look at the information I'm looking for item by item:
