RAID 5 Array Degraded - Same HDD still identifed?

Hi all,

 

It's been about 2 years since I've used this computer because of this issue. I was transferring my components to a new case and was careful to try and keep the same drives connected to the same ports, but by the time I started up once done, my main storage array was degraded and unusable due to 2 lost drives. One of these is truly dead (not sure how that happened coincidentally at the same time), but the other still shows up in the RST management window, as the same serial number, but not attached. See pictures attached.

So I can either attempt to hardware repair the dead drive, as it doesn't spin so might be a fuse or something, or I can figure out why Intel's firmware isn't smart enough to recognize the same drive as before.

 

Thanks for any help or insight in advance.

Additionally, I have since gotten hardware RAID cards from HP to use in the future for storage, as they seem much more reliable than Intel's on-board solution, but I still need this array alive long enough to transfer to these new arrays (not pictured).

Drives that have failed could still have their entries appear in RST. Only once you replace the drives and rebuild the array will the entries for the failed drives be removed.

Hope this helps,

The drive showing up works. I cannot replace the drive because I will lose all data. I need to somehow get the embedded controller to recognize this drive is part of the array it has... because it is.

I don't think you understood the problem.

In order to better assist you, please provide the following:  


1. Run the Intel® System Support Utility (Intel® SSU) to gather more details about the system.  

2. Are you able to perform a backup for your data?
