Restoring C: (NVIDIA Raid) from Symantec Recovery Disk
Jan 10th, 2008 at 5:01pm
 
Hello,

I'm saving all my partitions with NS&R V1.0 (GHOST 11 ?) from about 12 months;

Unfortunatly, few days ago, trying to update some drivers, my PC (Asus A8N-E, Windows XP SP2), did'nt keep quite; so the only thing to do is to restore my logical drive (C:).
In fact C: is stored on 2 HDD in a RAID 1 configuration (NVDIA).

When I want to restore my computer booting with the Symantec Recovery CD, and after pressing F6, I have a problem :

  • NS&R can't find thefile nvraid.sys stored on the floppy


Looking on forums, I found that is a known issue (concerning older versions of Ghost),but I don't see how to resolve it.

The file txtsetup.oem seems OK.

In the NVIDIA RAID User's Guide Version 2.0 A, (last page) it is said that the user must :

  • disable the GHOST Direct Disk Access;
    Force GHOST to rely on INT13 to access the disk;

They explain the way to do so, but when GHOST is launched from the PC and not launched from the recovery CD.

I'll be glad if someone knows the way to restore my datas on such a configuration.

Regards

mouspi

mouspi,

I think NSR 1.0 is a variant of Ghost 10. See if this thread on adding drivers to the CD is of help.

Thank you Brian,

I didn't try the method indicated in the link, because :

So I installed a new HDD (IDE) in order to restore my C: partition .
When I launched Symantec Recovery CD, I didn't press F6 .

Then I was surprised to be able to restore C: over the initial partition (in the Raid Array), but not on the new HDD.
I don't know why, but it worked, ... quite well.

Now, i'm just allowed to save partitions belonging to the first Raid array, but not those of the second array !!!

I think i'll uninstall NS&R, then réinstall it .

Does someone know, if the NS&R V2, or following versions, works on Raid system based managed by NVIDIA Chipset ??? (i found nothing about it on Symantec websites)

Regards
