    the BIOS on the motherboard i was using corrupted so it no longer boots. unfortunately i had a raid 0 on the HighPoint HPT 372 Ultra133 RAID controller built into the motherboard. what i'm wondering is if there is software that would allow you to hook the 2 drives up to another computer and pull some files off them? thanks :bowdown:

    Most likely not. Since there is metadata specific for that highpoint controller, you will need to get another mobo with the same controller.

    What contab said, you need an identical controller, and you may also need to match channels as well (same drive on the same channel).

    :bowdown: i was just about to post this myself as a follow up. someone directed me there and i have to say it worked great. it de-striped the 2 drives into a single image and i was able to recover all the files i wanted with their getdataback program. good stuff :bigthumb:

    Send in the mobo for warranty replacement. Or call up the company that made the controller and see if they will arrange for you to send them the disks and have them recover the data.
