XP Pro ASR restore failure

By michael.sullivan ·
Customer had Raid 0 System disk(s) with 240 GB total
for the volume.

Total data plus system 57GB. Cust removed one of the
two 120 GB drives due to failure.

Drive capacity now 120 GB but when trying to restore
from DAT backup, using ASR diskette and NTBackup
(SP1)

Boot from Xp Disk and select ASR restore & the
procedure returns with :

"The capacity of the current system disk is insufficint ...

"The replacement hard disk must be as large as the
disks present onthe origional system"

How to procede now?

You must re-create the striped set prior to running the ASR. Replace the faulty drive and re-install the OS. The execute the restore wizard (ASR) from there.

The question at the time was how to recover on the customers existing 120GB drive not how run rebuild. This is a common question as people expirment when they don't understand the outcome. Their was no way to recover the 57G backup with only onedrive and he didn't want to wait until the drive returned so he decided to start from scratch. Perhaps my question was ill phrased ... but this was not ment to be an Occam's Razo question.

Thanks for trying though.
