Without knowing how the drives were configured there is no way to answer your question. With 2 drives the options are RAID 0, RAID 1, or JBOD. You should be able to boot into ORCA and see how the drives were setup

Re: hp proliant DL380 re-install windows RAID failed

thank you guys for ur replies..
sorry i forgot to mention that it is configured with raid 0..,anyway my prob is solved now and i will tell what i did in case that happened with other beginners as i.

after many consultants i forced to one way only..
boot server with hp smartstart and go to maintenance to the Array configuration..

the array wizard tells you that the disk is
failed and need to re-enable by the array, but it warns that if you have any data on this drive, it could be lost..

at this point i stopped yesterday..
because of i failed to find another solution..

i forced to use this way..
and it works..
i could access my data normaly ..
and everything was fine..

thanks for hp tech support..
thanks for you guys..
and goodluck for all of you.
