Making a Mirrored Disk Bootable 2nd Post!!!


S

Sam

Hi,

This is the 2nd time I am posting this.. I have not
received an answer....Is it that tough of a problem??

Here goes....

I had a 2 dynamic disks set up as a mirror. Now 1 of them
didnt boot, so I switched around the disks and I wanted
to boot from the IDE drive instead of the SCSI which was
the bootable drive originally. So I changed the boot
order in the BIOS to boot from the System boot device
instead of the SCSI.

Now the only way I can boot is through using a Floppy
drive with NTLDR, Boot.ini, and NTDetect.com on it.

When I go to Disk Manager, it shows me 3 drives, the IDE
as Disk 0 and it says failed synchrozition or something
similiar, and the SCSI disk asDisk 1 and says Healthy.
then Disk 3 as Missing with Failed Synchrozition and both
show up as a Mirror.

I copied the Boot.ini from the floppy (where it works)
and the IDE Hd still will not boot. Is it because it is
not bootable? It has the 3 files in the root folder...

Also, how do I make the SCSI to mirror the IDe now
without losing data on the IDE? If I right click on the
Disk 3 it gives me a option to ReActivate Disk...Will
that solve the problem and not lose data?

I want the SCSI to Mirror the IDe drive...

Thanks for your help and time.

Sam

for a drive to be bootable it must be set active
