With no mirror and no backup, your only choices are to a) do an Ignite network recovery or b) re-install the OS.

Re: root disk replace in rp7410 without mirroring

Hi, in another OS ,it is possible to reinstall from another disk if previously backed up on it. But I am not sure is it possible for HP  if you can able to alternate path to boot from another disk ? and after all you have  to have backup already. So seems hard in this way.

Most logical solution is that reinstall with OS DVD or CD, if you do not have ignite backup..

You can try this: put another disk in a free slot and copy the boot disk with "dd" to that disk. Shutdown the system, put the new disk in the original slot and boot up.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
