Hard Driver Failure -- Please help me

Last night, our PDC server (compaq proliant 7000) downed due to hard drive failure. I replaced hard drive with same one, but a server doesn't boot up.

Failure hard drive is physical 0 drive which had NT files. Our server has 5 physical drives (1-5) and divided into 2 different arrays.

Array A (#1 Physical Drive)
3100MB, RAID 0, Logical Drive 1
5574MB, RAID 0, Logical Drive 2


Array B (#2-#5 physical drive)
26029MB, RAID 5, Logical Drive 5

Is there I can recover data which has in Array B?

You will have to reload the OS to drive 0 or move the set of drive to another server, noting the order of the drives.

You see taht you Array A is RAID0.
RAID0 is not failure tolerance.
If any single disk from array A fail you will lose all logical drive

Hi

From the Array config you have mentioned this is a Raid 0. Raid 0 is not mirrored and the chances of recovery is impossbile. The only way would be to load the OS and restore the data from the backup.It is always recommended to go with Raid 1 for OS atleast mirror will exist.
