    Re: unable to format partion???

    I replaced the hard drive with a WIN XP hard drive then had to add the raid driver and format the Drive (it formated once I put a Hard Drive with XP currently on) Don't ask me WHY?

    I think it is something to do with the SCSI Controller looking for a drive that isnt there.

    The issue now is the best way to try and recover data from the old hard drive????

    It has not been detected when I plug it into the server?

    Was the drive part of a RAID configuration?

    or was it a single drive on its own??

    Im pretty sure knoppix supports SCSI so you could boot from CD with that,.. and copy the data from the scsi drive to your newly found "xp" drive.

    According to the drive you said it was and the server it appears to be SATA not SCSI.

    Are they connected to the motherboards ports or to another card plugged in?

    If it's a card give us the model of that.
