PowerVault 725N RAID: How can I reflect my C: disk 0 to 1 disk partition?

How can get to reflect the current information on the first partition of drive 0, the system C: drive on the first partition of disk 1?

I got an emergency call in someone with a Dell PowerVault 725N, who I don't know.  Of what I read, it was established as a generally as a two RAID-1, one for OS C:, d plant: OS, and a great RAID-5 set all 4 drives E:.  He lost a disc.  However, when he lost a disk, RAID-5 was no longer working with one bad drive.  Obviously, that shouldn't happen, but it did.  I gathered that training was suspended the bus sometimes because sometimes the BONE wouldn't freeze also.  The fix was to remove the bad disk, which I did and copy data, much to their relief.  Find a new drive it in the city for her, and I put it.  This is where the problems started.

-When I put in the new drive, it came very well, I wrote the signature on the disk and dynamic implemented.
-RAID - 5 E: replicated on the disc fine, but not the mirror of the c: drive, I could not mirror, so I broke the mirror and deleted the "missing" disk it holds only 4 disks, and all 4 are there.
-When I try to mirror C: to free space on the new disk, it returns the error: "could not allocate contiguous space or partition." before I can even choose the button change.
-J' deleted the E: volume, the RAID-5 volume, to get all of the space on the new drive.  Therefore, I have a disk 0, with the OS on it in the first score, a 1 with nothing, put in place a dynamic drive and D: drive which is mirrored on the first partition of the disk 2 & 3.
-Even once, when I matches of the C: drive, then select Add Mirror, I always get the error: "could not allocate contiguous space or partition.»  Of course, there is a massive amount of space on disk 1 of mirror to.
-Dell pulled all the docs that people are used to solve this problem.  How can get to reflect the current information on the first partition of drive 0, the system C: drive on the first partition of disk 1?

Thank you!


After several reboots, read manuals and posts, try several methods without success, I finally found the problem.  It turns out, I had no chance to get it to work as it was.  The difficulty and the ONLY thing that makes the difference, without exception, has been updated of the BIOS by, 08.  After that EVERYTHING worked EXACTLY as advertised.

  • How can I remove a virtual disk partition?

    Well, basically, I was using the program - Ramdisk, and it takes little memory your just RAM and transforms a partition you can store things in, or use it as a hard drive. But, now, I think he's using for many and I would remove it. I used 400 MB of ram, so now it is used. I went to computer management, went to the partition and delete the volume. Now, he says: 5 - base 400 MB drive online, but on the side, where it shows the volume actually score or what ever, it says 400 MB not allocated.

    So now I have 400 MB of ram m unallocated, and I'm trying to find a way to get it back in my ram used! Any help would be greatly please

    You would need to reverse the process used to create the virtual disk - uninstall the software used to create, or reverse the settings that you have invoked in Windows to create, as the case may be.  Just delete the disk partition RAM does not remove it from memory.

  • My hard drive has failed. I have Microsoft XP media center edition 2005. How can I get a recovery disk?

    I had a hard disk crash.  I don't care about data loss, but I bought a new hard drive and you want to install Windows XP media center edition 2005.  I have a sticker on the side of my pc with the product code.  How can I get a recovery disk?  Download the program from another PC?

    As your original failed hard drive, you would of course not be able to access any partition contained on this hard drive recovery.  Therefore, your best option is to contact the manufacturer of the computer and see if you can get the installation of their own media.

  • How can I access the recovery on my Satellite L500D-00F partition?

    Hi, I just bought a Toshiba Satellite L500D-00F delivered with Windows 7 Home Premium and my OS is not working properly so I need to boot from the recovery partition, but I can't find a way to do...


    The first startup launched the hidden restore partition and I followed the procedure to install the OS of the computer.

    At one point he asked me if I wanted to 32-bit or the 64 bit version of Windows 7, so I choose the default option (32 bit) because I couldn't find anywhere in the specifications of L500D of the merchant that is was a 64-bit processor.

    After the installation of the computer, it started Windows 7 properly and I could hear the startup sound, see my office for a second and the screen went black, nothing worked at all and I discovered that my computer was actually a unit of 64-bit, so that is probably why the video driver does not work properly, I guess. Whenever I start my laptop, I see my desktop for a second then it goes black and crashes like this.


    In any case... I want to restart this recovery partition and reinstall my operating system using the 64-bit version.

    How can I boot from the recovery partition on my L500D-00F... AND PLEASE don't tell me to hit F8 during the startup, I already tried this and NO I don't have a "Repair" option The first is 'Safe mode' and there is no option 'Fix' or 'retrieve '.

    Also, in Windows Disk Manager (that I can use in some way when I boot in safe mode) I see two hidden partitions, a 10 GB and a 1.5 GB, so I KNOW they are there, I did not delete them and they should be intact.

    Any help is appreciated, but don't tell me to hit F8 when starting, this has already been tried: P

    Thanks for the comments.
    On this forum, that we have already talked about this and of course access to the data recovery is not the same for all models of laptop. F8 method is for example for models Europeans and several people from the Australia or even Canada reported on the use of the 0 button.

    In any case, I'm happy to know that everything is going well.

    Good bye

  • How can I get a driver disk?

    Hi all.

    I have a situation.  I'm with CVI 8.0.1 with NOR-DAQmx version 8.1.0f1.  I am creating a distribution kit onto another machine to control the operation & collect data.  The machine that I put my software on a 6.9.2f8 OR-DAQmx & I tried to run my software on this & failed.

    When I try to compile the distkit, he invites me to the disc "May 2006."  I do not have the disc & can't get my IT Department. (that is another story).  I have records 2003, 2007 and 2008 None are accepted by the manufacturer of the kit.  I download the DAQmx 8.1 from your Web site and hope you can tell me how to do disk I put it on the shows until May 2006.

    I really need this project & I'm sorta myself here, any help would be appreciated...

    Thank you


    You will not be able to give the DAQmx 8.1 disk system if she asks May 2006 driver disk. It's very particular about what discs he wants, because he doesn't know if all the components it needs can be found on another disk. This behavior has been somewhat improved in the new versions of the CVI, but in your case, if she asked in May 2006, you need to provide in May 2006. Unfortunately, I don't think there's any standard channel for you to get a new copy of this disc. It might be possible if you called to support, but I wouldn't count on that yet. I see two options:

    1. use one of the disks of the driver that you have (2007 or 2008) to upgrade the version of NOR-DAQ on your development computer. Presumably, this will upgrade all components which should have from the disk of May 2006, and the distribution build process should ask for one (or more) discs 2007 instead.

    2. do not include OR-DAQ in your distribution. Use your discs 2007 or 2008 to install NOR-DAQ on your target machine separately.

  • How can I do a repair disk in windows 8?


    I have 8 preinstalled Windows and my computer lacks a cd player. How can I do what you suggested?

    Split from: this thread

    Hi Lucas,.

    Your product key Windows 8 should be with the confirmation email that you received after the purchase of Windows 8 for the download, or with your package if you bought in a sales package at retail.

    If your computer is pre-installed with Windows 8, your product key should be on a sticker on your computer or with your documentation.

    You can call the manufacturer and ask for a product key of Windows 8. There is usually a sticker on the side of a computer OEM (down for laptops) with the key. If there is no sticker on the computer, check the documentation provided in the box for a 'certificate of authenticity' that should have the sticker or the code.

    You can also go to the following site.

    Electronic download Support software phone numbers:

    Locate and call the phone number for your local area.

    You will need to provide your personal information, such as the email address you used, credit card number, etc. They'll send back the confirmation e-mail.

    You can also visit this link Windows 7 which is also applicable to Windows 8.

    Where can I find my Windows product key?


    When you get the product key, print or copy him and put it somewhere safe.

    Hope this information helps.

  • How can I say Boot Manager to point to a new partition on a dual boot win7/8 system?

    Old configuration:

    Processor: 2GHTz Dual core
    RAM 4 GB
    Hard drives: (SATA)
    160 GB, Windows 7 (default)
    80 GB windows 8
    160 GB used for installing games

    RAM 4 GB
    Hard drives: (SATA)
    160 GB, Windows 7 (default)
    160 GB Windows 8
    160 GB, used for games
    To replace the 80 GB with a new 160 GB, I attached the 160 to a basket swap, then connected via a USB port. I used EaseUS Partition Master 9.2.2 to clone the 80 to 160 new, then exchanged out them. When I tried to boot into windows 8, I got an error saying the system needs to be repaired by using the installation media. I inserted the disc and ran the repair, and it failed. I restarted in 7 and plugged the 80 in the caddy of swap to verify that the files were the same, whether they are. I rebooted again and I tried to start windows 8 (accidentally forgot to unplug the swap caddy) and he tried to start the 80 since the swap caddy. How to configure the Boot Manager to point to the installation partition (same installation) of windows 8 located on 160 GB internal instead of pointing to the 80 GB? I know that this must be done using the windows installation at the command prompt 8 disc, but I do not know the appropriate commands. I would like to be able to do this without having to reinstall the operating system, because I don't want to lose all the stuff I have installed in this operating system.


    Please try EasyBCD and remove the entry from Windows 8 start in that and then add again. If that doesn't work, you can reset Windows 8 at startup, here's how:

  • How can I change the preview disk cache?

    I keep seeing statements such as "stop at nothing".

    you to locate the hiding place of the Preview on another disk. UH... There is a problem.

    I don't find any opportunity to do anywhere. In the catalog settings it only "Shows" the location and does not change.  Am I missing something? I looked and looked and the process is nowhere described. It's very frustrating because I can find these things myself quite easily and in his totally buried LR if its possible at all.


    How can I change the calibration of the default camera with ACR 4.4 standard Adobe?  The first thing I do after every import is to go back and synchronize with a different camera profile.

    Thanks in advance for any help

    If you want to have your cache overview on another disc, simply copy any directory containing your Lightroom catalog on this disc. Once it of there, double-click the icon for the catalogue, and LR will open from there and use the previews that you will be moved on the disk (they are in the same folder as the catalog).

    After you are satisfied that everything is working properly, you can delete the catalog and previews out of your system disk.


  • How can I remove a hard disk to the raid set default and replace it with a new one

    Last Friday apparently began one of my raid drives failing.

    As I said on this forum I started having continuous beep.

    I was finally able to get the raid works at a degraded level.  I ordered a replacement hard drive, that happened today.

    (In the meantime, I made twice daily backups of my work...)

    Below is the message that I have the raid of browser-based software:

    Blahblah 09 1000,2 GB RaidSet Member SamSung HD103SJ

    Blahblah 10 GB 1000,2 free SamSung HD103SJ

    Blahblah 11 1000,2 GB RaidSet Member SamSung HD103SJ

    Blahblah 12 GB 1000,2 RaidSet Member SamSung HD103SJ

    (See this thread sooner if you wish!)


    At any given time when I did the checked the browser interface, I have seen the message failed and degraded

    As I said, I was able to work this weekend on the degraded system.

    This morning I had the new tone and made the rescue and now I use a "full raid" without the advice that a raid was 'free '.

    In all cases, the new drive arrived today.

    Should what precautions I take to integrate the new drive in the raid system.

    I have an OS disk

    and raid 4 TB drives.   One needs to be replaced with the new one I get today.

    Thank you



    You currently have your background priority set to 20% IIRC, so it will take time to rebuild, but probably a lot less than 24 hours as for new construction. Even with 20% defined, I guess that it will be done in less than 12 hours, but you can set the background priority to 50% and it will be much faster at the expense of access to your raid. Reconstruction of the background is designed to give you access to all your data files and to continue the work, while the data is being rebuilt. You can continue your work, so if it takes 8 or 12 hours to find the full data intergrity isn't all that relevant. Your aura a functional slower than with a raid reaction complete, but has more speed than a single disk.

  • How can I reflect the screen of the imac on the apple tv, but sound on airport express

    The ultimate goal: have itunes visualizer go to a TV using apple TV, but the speakers play an Airport Express.

    Details: I can get the imac to the mirror of the apple TV, but I do not have the speakers connected to it. I try then in iTunes to airplay of multiple devices and click on my Airport express which has speakers. But I'm losing the mirroring on the TV. It seems to be one or the other. Can I do both?

    On ATV4 you can airplay audio to Apple TV to an express through settings on the ATV.  Not sure on the previous models.  I try it then try and make your simultaneous mirror.
