    I think it is fixed!

    Here's what I did:
    1. Follow instructions for making a boot disk at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/1194...22120121120120
    2. Edit the BOOT.INI so that it reads:
    Code:
    [boot loader]
    timeout=10
    Default= multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(2)\Winnt
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(2)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Server" /fastdetect
    3. Copy the device driver for the RAID controller (Mraid35x.sys) to the floppy and rename it NTBOOTDD.SYS
    4. Boot from the disk into Windows and log in as admin
    5. Open the Disk Management snapin and reactivate the broken RAID partition - it should then resynch.

    I had once had a similar one on a Software RAID setup (was IDE raid though - I know, terrible as it was, it was cheap and my last place, I had to argue for £2.99 P&P!) and it did an error, and I am sure it was that or a similar one. I now just use Hardware RAID as then the errors are detected and fixed before Windows.
