Moving Raid drives Bad Phy Slot

I need someone to tell me if my approach is correct.  We have a Poweredge 2950 connected to an Powervault MD1000 with a bad location.  We have an another Powervault MD1000 that we'll use to replace it.  Since it is the same model table, what have we to do to transfer the readers to the new table?  I think we should be able to server and storage, disconnect the table, remove current disks, place them in the same dwelling in the new table that they are in the Bay broke, connect the new table, and then restart.  Is this correct?


Hello hhertz,

Yes, the way you put out is the correct way to get your readers to your MD in MD again.  When you turn on the server I would check in the PERC bios to make sure that all the drives are online and seen as it should.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    I have a RAID 5 drive connected to my MACPRO (MacPro5, 1), OSX 10.9.2. His work correctly on the BONE. In first Pro CC I can import files from it no problem, everything seems to go well until I try to link the media about him. The link media browser will not access it. I can see it, I can see the icon of RAID, but it will not access the files.

    Media link Explorer it will not appear on the list of the local drives on the left pane. When I double click on local hard disks, on the right pane, I can see the RAID HD icon, but when I click on it it won't open it. He knows its there, but can't access it. I don't understand. I can import files, etc., but not to link the files. I have to redo the entire sequence with the files of this RAID drive and its working days.

    I'd appreciate a lot of help with this problem.

    After moving all about the RAID I completely erased the disc.

    I reformatted it and moved all the data on it.

    Now, it seems to work.

    Not a good solution (because I do not know if the problem will resurface for a reason any)- but at least it's working.

    Here at least I know to test the new drive with the media browser before copying tons of data on it.

  • Need Tecra S3 Raid driver for VISTA

    I "find many drivers to install vista on TECRA S3, but not the DIVER of RAID. It is essential to install vista. Can anyone help?
    Thanks Mike

    Perhaps Vista has not the RAID driver? Installing XP on a newer machine, I mean that you need to load some drivers, but not under Vista.

    Did you already installed Vista on your computer?

    See you soon

  • Windows 7 can't detect the TOSHIBA Portege M400 RAID driver

    I put to level my M400 tablet from Windows XP to Windows 7.

    Questions of compatibility check out, all right. In research I realized I needed to upgrade the RAID driver to a version of Win7. So I downloaded which, from my external hard drive to install to Win7, and installing Win7 can't find it. I tried the same thing with a variant of Vista with no luck. Even through the installation on the hard drive itself, nothing happened. Impossible to get in the tio silent run command prompt, absolutely nothing. I'm back where I throw this computer out of my 4th story window.

    Any help please?


    Where did you download the RAID driver?
    Please try to download the RAID driver on the Toshiba site directly. These drivers are pre-tested and should work on your laptop too.

    The older Portege M400 taken Windows 7 isn't supported so in the worst case, you can t use it.
    But normally the drivers should work on Vista so make sure you are using the correct driver.

  • Portege M400: Installtion Windows - cannot install the RAID driver

    Hello world
    I installed my original form of the system DVD Toshiba (60 GB partition).
    So, I bought the second system with my notebook (Windows XP Pro OEM PL) and I want to install it on my second partition. When installing WinXP installer asked me about RAID driver on drive A: (I USB floppy drive, so it's no problem)... next step - partitioning - no problem. But when Windows starts to copy files (after select and format partition), ask again on RAID driver disk A: - and that is the problem, because my floppy drive is not present (maybe disable it windows after formatting the partition, I don't know)...
    There is also no results:
    -J' tried to install Windows on USB HDD, but there are blue screen after the first reboot,.
    -J' have tried to compile the RAID driver in, this does not (or I did wrong).
    Someone has an idea how to install my second system? It is OEM, and I don't want to lose him.
    .. Sorry for my poor English :)...


    After installing the driver RAID you should not make any partition or format the HARD drive.
    If you do this, the RAID driver is deleted and you will get an error.

    So do all the changes on the HARD disk before you install the RAID driver.

  • Qosmio G30 - Question on the Raid driver

    Do I really need this driver to use RAID functions? If its set in BIOS, what makes the pilot actually do? outside you give health statistics?

    See you soon

    Yes, you need the RAID driver.
    I think that the Qosmio G30 has been designed with the RAID feature as some units of the G20.
    Without this RAID driver, you will not be able to install the OS because the OS Setup may not recognize the HARD drive.

    RAID uses two options:
    RAID 0 (Striping): two hard disks are used as a big drive, if a HARD disk fails all data is lost
    RAID-1 (Mirroring): hard drives contain the same data if a disk fails, data is not lost

    I think you could check this announcement and also use the advanced search to forum for more results on RAID.

    In the user manual, you will also find lots of info on RAID

  • Qosmio G30-145: WinXP and RAID driver - no response

    I did everything that is needed for the installation of windows xp for Qosmio G30-145.

    Installation process is as a result: as in and that worked, but during the installation of windows has started, you will be asked once more (first time I did format and second time that I did ' t format HARD drive): "INSERT THE DISK LABELLED"TOSHIBA RAID DRIVER"in the A: drive... "Press on enter when ready '- but no reaction... SOLUTION!

    Thanks in advance.


    According to the Toshiba page suggested when installing Windows using to partition or format the HARD drive, the RAID driver is deleted in the process. This causes the shot the next time that the machine start-up.
    To avoid this, perform a partitioning and formatting before you run the manual installation of Windows.
    This behavior is not displayed during the installation of Windows XP with SP2 integrated

    Well, perhaps, you need a CD OS Win SP2 integrated?

    But why you do not use the recovery CD Toshiba delivered?
    On this CD, all drivers are preinstalled and you only need to install the OS from the recovery CD. All should work properly.

    PS: Just for the record: in the BIOS, you should find an option to disable (or change) the RAID.

  • Need driver Bridge Media slot for Equium A100


    I have Toshiba Equium A100-147 and have no driver for Bridge Media slot.
    I downloaded it from the download from Toshiba site, but it does not work!
    Please help me!


    What does not work? You are not able to install the driver or the slot not reading cards?

    On the page of the Toshiba driver are placed 2-conductor. Be sure you use the right one.
    Plug then the good card in the slot and then try to install the driver.

    But what do you have on the laptop? Did you install the new OS? If yes then check the instruction install driver from the Toshiba page?
    I've installed several times the OS manually on my Satellite and I have always followed the instructions.
    It's important document and if you install the drivers manually you need to follow this guideline.

  • Question about the V1.3.8.0 Raid driver update

    Can someone tell me what are the advantages of doing an update of the RAID Toshiba Windows XP MCE driver or what case?

    Also had another problem... I tried to install the driver for interim relief and he made a mistake... my version of raid is always the one I had before and couldn t install this version.
    Any help would be cool.
    Thank you

    As far as I know the RAID driver must be installed at the begging of the installation of the OS.
    Unfortunately there is no any official documents about the correctional system and the benefits of updates.
    But I think that the new driver could be compatible with more motherboards and controller.

  • How to install Windows Vista on the Qosmio G35-Av600 RAID driver?

    I have Windows Vista Home Preminm upgraded Pakage. When I start the installation process, the installation program ask Toshiba Raid Driver. So I click the button to load a driver and choose the folder where the driver is located, as mentioned on the guide, but said configuration there is no driver found for this player.

    Have you chosen the right RAID driver?
    It seems that this laptop Qosmio was designed for the American market and therefore, you need to download the driver to the US page:

    It is specially designed RAID driver for Vista. At that time its version 1.10.0016 .
    Please note that you will need to extract this file prior to installing the RAID driver!

  • Portege M400 - RAID driver for Windows 7

    Drivers Windows XP don t work on Windows 7's the reason why you can t install Windows 7 successfully.

    You should try it with Vista driver again. The Vista drivers are also work on Windows 7. I think that's all you can do at the moment.

    Good luck! :)

  • Pavilion Elite m9500z raid driver windows 7

    I upgraded my Pavillion Elete m9500z to windows 7. Worked very well. Update of Windows has loaded a new driver for the video card. The pilot hangs the system, the blue screen. I tried to go back to the previous driver and the system still crashes. I tried a system restore point with no luck. Finally, I tried starting problems resolution and makes things worse. System boots to the point just before the login screen. Remains black with the cursor, even in safe mode.

    At this point, I amtrying to fix the installation with the windows installation disc. The problem is that the boot drive is a raid drive. The installation disc can not see the drive without the driver. HP drivers are exe only files not the driver files. Motherboard MSI website has no drivers because the jury is the property of HP.

    I need the drivers in a format that windows will recognize or a method of extracting files from the installer of HP.

    Yet once it shouldn't be this difficult.

    Help, please

    These drivers failed with the same error. Finally, I converted the RAID drives to AHIC and they have been recognized by windows. The problem with the system was caused by the video card. Windows was unable to complete the repair process and the system is in place again.

    Thanks for your help.
