Well according to your post ID 2 has failed

Have you tried opening the RAID Utility after the POST Screen disappears to see what is happening with the RAID Array?

That would be the best option as it's very likely to be accurate, with Adapter it's normally CTRL C to open the RAID utility.

Yep thought so

When you installed 2003 you trashed the previous RAID configuration.

Cure is to replace the Faulty Drive HD2 and reinstall the OS but on the first blue Screen pres the F6 Key and install the RAID Drivers from the Root of a Floppy.

About your Data you'll need to bring this back from your most recent Backup and hope you don't loose too much.

Not really true

by benhadad_smith In reply to Yep thought so

Well this is probably too late. But it seems you either had 2 drives fail or your super blocks got messed up. I have found if you write down the exact info and you do a Quick Init after deleteing the Raid settings that the control will re-reconize the old raid and rebuild. Sounds strange but works on some raids so check with the RAID Manf. before continuing on.
