    x86 drivers so they may not work with a 64 bit image but here they are

    I always vote for BartPE but it can take a little while getting your head around making one.

    However there is a BartPE friendly mass storage driver pack available from driverpacks.net, which integrates itself into your bartPE automagically, and because it contains drivers for pretty much every mass storage gadget that wasn't released recently (including the ones linked above) it makes that bit simple. In the unlikely event that a driver isn't in the driver pack you can also do the traditional F6 thing when booting a bartPE.

    acronis also has very good raid drivers, could you boot it far enough to maybe take an image?

    and then restore to dissimilar hardware, or a vm!

    there are discs out there that do contain all you need "for testing purposes"

    "acronis-all-bootcd" googled might produce results.

    An update for you all, ubutuntu could see the raid set and I tried a ntfsmount (no force) and it failed saying there was errors after a few mins (and a lot of nasty HD grinding noises)
    Ubuntu can see the tape drive but I have no idea how to access it or extract the windows backup from it.

    You could try removing the grinding HD assuming you can work out which one it is, the whole point of RAID 5 is that it can rebuild itself if you loose a drive. Its worked for me before, I'm assuming you have a spare drive to replace it with of course.

    Not sure about mounting of the tape in ubuntu. Depending on the system it may require the original backup software to read out the contents of the tape. Only way foward would be to have that software integrated onto a live cd or yank the drive and chuck it in a different system that you can install compatible backup software on for a restore.

    The only other think that I can think of is to attempt a raw image of the virtual drive from the RAID Array and then use a tool like testdick on the result in an attempt to recover as many files as possible from the damaged filesystem. You can try this on the system itself but this is not the safest way to go about it.
