Dynamic Mirror Drive




I've made a SCSI mirror driver using 2 HDD and Windows 2000 Server SP4
dynamic disc.
Today the PC begin to restart about 20 second after the initializing af
Windows 2000 Server.

So I try to boot with SCSI disk ID0 the screen remain black and nothing
happend, if I try to boot with SCSI disk ID1 I get blue screen with:
Inaccessible Boot Device error.
So I made a boot floppy with the follow parameter:

[boot loader]
Default= scsi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\winnt

[operating systems]
scsi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\winnt="Windows NT"

This is the contents of setup.log file contained in my Recovery Floppy Disk

TargetDirectory = "\WINNT"
TargetDevice = "\Device\Harddisk0\Partition2"
SystemPartitionDirectory = "\"
SystemPartition = "\Device\Harddisk0\Partition2"

The thing I'd like to do is recover my data contained in my disk, I've tried
to install Windows 2000 PRO using an IDE disk, after I plug both my SCSI
disk but neither of them is accessible!

How can I do for recover my data?

Thank you to all!
