    I've lost my RAID array after changing some memory timings in BIOS!!
    Issue is on a Gigabyte GA-X38DQ6 board...
    Hoping that one of you guys will be able to help me out with this.

    Set it all back to default, reboot and go back in the bios and make sure in advanced options your RAID(SCSI) disk is set as first boot device

    Do this first, not what I emailed you about

    Tried this, loaded fail safe and then changed BIOS to specify RAID.
    Now the RAID screen shows up, but the RAID name has gone.
    It shows 2 disks both with status non-member disk.

    Find a copy of RAID Reconstructor then, you will need a IDE drive or additional SATA drive to move the data to. Or it may also be able to fix this for you, otherwise you may just have to delete and reinstall

    sry about the ultra-smart reply, but that's a prime example why you shouldn't use software-raid at all...it's pure gunk;
    experienced the same problem on a friends machine: raid gone after bios-update;
    i was able to 'fix' it by connecting it to another brand board with the same southbridge;

    What RAID level were you using?

    software RAID ?? I was using RAID from the Motherboard, I guess that should be Hardware RAID provided by the Southbridge on the board.

    can you describe how you were able to setup the same RAID in a different board ? I might try the same steps on my board, as I doubt my disks have gone this soon...

    Gosh, for some reason I didn't see the "0" at all.

    Hehe no kidding, i didn't do anything at all - just connect. Think i had to swap the ports once..afterwards it instantly recognized the old config/data.

    You call anything software raid which isn't working fully off a hardware controller-chip..the standard raid from on-board controllers and inexpensive sata cards is only emulating raid. The "raid-chip" is more or less only routing the tasks.
    True raid (hardware) you usually find in a server or on more expensive controllers (200€ +) - you'll recognize them by a larger controller-chip, sometimes even with a small heatsink attached - here the chip does all the work/config independently.
    (sorry about the limited detail, you can read it up in broader detail on wikipedia and the likes)
