QOSMIO G30 - RAID-1 is GRADIENT, the search for a solution


My QOSMIO G30 is confirgured in RAID1. Today the second hard drive failed, unless I hard when I saw "RAID-1 is DEGRADING" displayed on the screen to power on the computer. Once booted Vista Ultimate, I get an error indicating that the Toshiba Raid Service had stopped unexpectedly (this message is also recorded in the system event log). "Unable to get the State raid console display."

Go to the BIOS Setup, I see that the secondary hard drive is in the State has failed while the first is in the online state. The two hard drive are marked "RAID-1.

I restarted after removing the second hard drive in the system. Of course, I always get the message from the bios. Vista boots normally and then I get an alarm saying the raid is broken. It's perfectly anticipated if only the second hard disk is now deleted.

I connected the hard drive to a SATA Transcend USB controller and it work perfectly! Then I reinstalled the hard drive in the computer. After the reboot, the raid service accident again. The first hard disk is functioning stil and I made a backup full, just in case.

I searched a lot for a procedure restoring the second hard drive operation, but I've not found anything really helpful.

Go into the BIOS, if I change the disc to nothing else than "RAID-1" mode, I said that I have to reinstall the OS. I don't want to do that. I want to back the second hard drive in operation. I want to have the mirror restored from the first hard drive on the second hard drive, without losing the contents of your hard drive.

Any help is appreciated.

This with changing RAID mode and install of the OS is just because when you change the RAID in the BIOS operating system must be installed again. RAID info should be saved into the MBR.
What RAID driver and RAID utility do you use?
One last thing: is your laptop preinstalled with recovery Toshiba (32 bit) image?

> I want to put the second hard drive in operation.
To be honest, one thing is not understandable to me. Are you trying to get old HDD (a second) working again or you have new HARD drive (as a second) und try to have mirrored hard drives again?
Have two exact hard drives the same capacity?

    Hi, I bought a Toshiba UK G30-162 and it does not have a Uk keyboard (directed by Vista), main caps do not correspond to the key. That is to say an umlaut = ', + =-.

    It took me a long time after that.


    What type of keyboard you have now? And how to think that Don t you have a UK keyboard?

    Is a sign of (euro) on your "E"? If so then you probably have a German or a keyboard of france. If this isn't the case, then you have an American or a UK keyboard.

    Just look at your settings in your systemproperties.

    This problem can be caused by a video driver obsolete or damaged, file system on your PC can be damaged or do not correspond with other files and certain applications or services that are running on your computer may be responsible for Windows Explorer to stop working.

    Note: Before you perform an upgrade in-place, you must be prepared for the worst scenarios that led to your existing data on your computer being deleted. These data include data personal, settings, information about the hardware and software drivers. In case of a worst case scenario, you may have to reinstall all the programs. Make sure that you back up personal data to disks or other external storage devices before performing an upgrade on the spot.

    Note: The data files that are infected must be cleaned only by removing the file completely, which means that there is a risk of data loss.

  • Using synonyms in the search for name


    I try to use synonyms in an oracle namesearch. Set up a seqarch name as in the second example described in the developer's guide to the oracle text to http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E18283_01/text.112/e16594/search.htm application

    Now the name, for I am looking can hold one '&', for example 'B & V '.

    I would like to find this text when I enter "B & V", B & V' or 'B and V.

    I found a thread on how to set up a thesaurus with synonyms for '&' and 'and' to 'and' and ampersand or special characters

    Now I'm wondering how to combine this.

    Thanks for the help in advance,

    Your change was correct and it works. For reserved words in the braces enclosing aims to tell Oracle Text as text rather than apply the special meaning they have as reserved words. Since "und" is not a reserved word, it didn't need to be escaped by placing braces. When you set "&", then "und" synonymously as you did the search for 'B und V' correctly found "B and V, as in the modified below demo. In this particular case, the search might work without applying the format_string, but you need to keep it in the query so that it is applied to these values in need, for example, if you searched for "B & V' or 'B & V".

  • Re: Qosmio G30 - RAID of the problems when installing the OS

    I got my Qosmio G30-161 for half a year and he had thought should be time to reinstall everything, so I could get rid of things I didn't need (programs, viruses and uninteresting video clips).

    So I took my XP MCE Cd and tried to install, and I am guided me through and come to the place where I had to choose between unknown 1st and 2nd 3rd stripping mirrored. I chose the stripping as I wanted my drives to be in one. Then when I pressed "next" it gave me the error message "1005 - HDD is not ready?

    I tried to go into the BIOS and change the setting of different parameters of Toshiba told me to, but he also warned that if I changed my OS settings will need to be reinstalled. No problem. But I still get the same message error "disk is not ready?". So now, I have to use a computer other than mine to check the forums and mail etc.

    Anyone know what I need to do? I'll be happy with anything as long as I can have both my hard drives (60 + 60 GB) and OS work. :)

    Please help, I would urge for her, because the computer is the one I use for my school work. Feel free to ask questions about the tricks of the system. If you have an answer, please let it be simple, because I really don't want to mess up again ^_^

    Please check the details relating to the installation of RAID user's Guide.
    Usually if you use the clean Windows XP disk then you need to include the RAID drivers first.
    Without pre-installed RAID drivers HARD drive will not be recognized and you will not be able to install the OS!

  • Qosmio G30 - RAID may not reflect new 500 GB HARD drive

    I have installed 2 new identical 500 GB hard in my Qosmio G30 with Windows XP.

    The system works well, but the disc cannot be mirrored. Report of the Raid Controller is 'Normal Operation status.

    This disk cannot be used for mirroring because it is outside the management of the RAID."

    Who can tell me whether it is a disc error or is the drive of 500 GB to big for the toshiba with Windows XP raid controller?

    > Can anyone tell me if it of a disc error, or is the drive of 500 GB to big for the toshiba with Windows XP raid controller?

    Hmm. I m not very good, but it could be possible that the 500 GB HARD drive is too big for the mirroring of the mode.

    But have you tried to change the mode in comforter Toshiba RAID you might find in Toshiba Assist-> Protect Fix & -> RAID Console

    Check if you can switch to the mirroring.

    By the way; RAID-1 is defined in the BIOS?
    Usually, when you use RAID-1 configuration, the RAID is set to mirroring. In this case, the operating system recognizes the reduced ability to both hard drives (in your case, it is not important since you are using the two 500 GB HDD).

    Check it!
