Software RAID problem while upgrading from NT 4 to 2000

Dear experts!


My friend is experiencing the following trouble with software RAID:

He has Dell 4400 server with hardware RAID and software RAID running Windows NT 4. When he decided to upgrade the server to Windows 2000, he just installed Windows 2000 by a clean install on hardware RAID (software RAID was not even touched).

After the procedure, unfortunately,he remembered that there is a important data on the software RAID =)

The problem is as follows: Windows 2000 doesnÒt recognize this software RAID. So, is there any way to make the system recognize the RAID or we need to return to Windows NT 4 to get the data or may be some other idea?

Thank you in advance
