You're welcome Uvbogden,
Thank you for the suggestion to create one for it,
I can ONLY get to step 3 when I try for a complete pc reinstall. The screen is the multi blue color with an active mouse pointer. If I disconnect both my raid drives the step 3 screen comes up and continues, BUT my back up img is on one of my raid drives. Any work-around clues?
Welcome to the forum.
Raid setups can be tricky sometimes. It's been a while since I played with raid. You might look at this tutorial to see if will help get it to recognize you raid drives.
The only workaround that I know to do is to copy the image to another partition on the main drive, or other device, that would be recognized at step 3. (EX: USB device)
Wish I could help more, but it's been to long away from Raid.
I'm sorry I didn't give enough information.(I thought EVERYBODY took mind reading classes )
Vista is on a single non raid drive. My full pc restore back up is on a raid drive. All drives are sata drives.
I figured that you had another main drive in there for Vista other than the Raid ones.
That workaround is still the only thing I know to do. It's just been to long since I used RAID.
