Hello:On my home server I run 2 mirrored volumes. One pair is the system drive and the other is the data drive. All 4 are the same exact drive (segate 230 gig ata). I run them off a promise ultra 133 raid card (I even bought a second card of the same model in case this one failed).My main concern was redundancy to prevent loss of the system or data.Well, last weekend I lost one of the mirrors on the system drive (amazing in such a short time <1yr so I will get a replacement). It happened to be the mirror that was drive 0 (mirrored with drive 1).Removing the drive left the array unbootable because I failed to properly edit the boot.ini file on the mirror to make it bootable. In the end, I moved ahead too fast for my own good and lost the system array.I had a spare and I swapped it in. Server 2003 was installed in 1 night and it's back up and running.Such much for my best laid plans. I need to do more research on how to recover from a lost mirror on the system drive to prevent this from happening again.Splotto
