Storage Works Enclosure 4354

I have an ML370 Server connected to Storage Works Enclosure 4354 through 642 Smart Array Controller. I have 2 internal Disks on RAID1+0 and 5(146.8GB) disks in RAID5. The RAID5 Volume has windows logical partitions in it. If I re-install my OS windows server 2003 on this server how will I be able to see the windows partitions and data on the RAID5 volume.

Re: Storage Works Enclosure 4354

How will you be able to? I'm not sure I understand the question. When you reinstall the OS the existing logical drive (with partitions) will show up within Windows with, usually, the next drive letters available. If the mirror is C and the cd drive is D, then the partitions on the raid 5 should show as E, F, etc.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..

Re: Storage Works Enclosure 4354

If I re-install the server my partitions information is lost hence resulting in total data loss and in the new installed OS I see the drive as "unallocated". This is the main problem. Is there any way that I can save my partitions info and they can be recognized in the new OS?
