DL-360G4p :Problem facing during booting from Second Mirror Disk

Hi All,
System (DL-360G4p)does not boot when I try to boot from alternate mirrored disk. I am not facing any problem during booting from primary disk. The system has a "HP 8 Internal port SAS HBA with RAID" card installed and I created a logical drive (RAID-1) with the help of it. I installed windows 2003 enterprise edition with SP2 in it. It is running properly but when I reboot the system with keeping primary disk out from the bay then it can not boot. Could you please tell me what is the reason of it?
Please help.

Did I not just answer this question for another?
Sounds to me as if when you removed the drive 0, the controller 'failed' the drive in its setup. When you replaced the drive and removed the drive 1, drive 0 was still set as 'failed' and it would start to rebuild the mirror, but now drive 1 is 'failed', so now the entire array has failed.
To get back you will probably have to delete the RAID logical entirely, configure a new set with both drives install, but do not Initialize or format the logical, just reboot
