Lost Internal Stripped ATA Raid on Panther Upgrade?
on Apr 28, 2005 at 12:35:26 am

I had two 200 gig ATA internal drives striped using a ATA 100/133 card running on 10.2.x When I upgraded to Panther they disappeared. When I boot it prompts to initialize or ignore the drive.

Any way to get the raid back?

I had the previous system archived on the main drive upon install of Panther. Should I restore that? Or is there some extension that I can copy over?

I had virtually the same happen to me. My Quicksilver 2002 dual 1.0 GHz MAC had a SIIG ATA-133 ATA card hostin two 250 GB drives. Upon loading Panther, pffffst! No more drives!

I eventually got tired of trying to get SIIG to own up and I started my quest with Serial ATA drives.

Here's hoping Tiger doesn't kill those FirmTek SATA adapters.

Same - SIIG Card. I wrote them - SIIG - and they have no response. So no luck? 400 gig lost. Just seemed like a time when you wouldnt lose anything. And backing up such a big drive. Updated drivers, firmware. Is there a cheap utility out there that can recover data? I know nothing has been erased.

Regrettably, there is no way to reassemble that data as it was parsed out between two volumes. If you reinstall 10.2 and don't touch your hardware , those mounted volumes should come alive.

I was able to do that to get the most valuable data off but actually when I removed the SIIG card and installed the FirmTek SATA card and made those two drive a RAID 0, the entire volume of data came up!

Hi,

I would try booting off the archived partition. If the archive is not on a dedicated partition I would put it on a dedicated partition so that you can boot off it without wiping out the new Panther partition.

Next time clone the orginal partition to a dedicated partition and spend a few minutes testing on the clone before doing your upgrade.


Best Wishes,

Mitch
