    Cool Fixing RAID after bios flash.

    Hi all.

    I wish my welcome was under more pleasant circumstances.

    I can only wish that the first time i read below was in a Gigabyte flash manual instead of during my search on RAID recovery
    Then reboot Back into the BIOS again before you go into windows. You will need to set your hard drive settings again in the Advanced BIOS page. MOST IMPORTANTLY do not try to load Windows if you are using a RAID setup without setting these disk settings again or you will corrupt your RAID Array.
    To cut to the chase: Is there an established / reliable way to recover from this 'error'?

    ps: I'm still searching the boards/google, but if someone has a link or a tool it would greatly help. Thanks.

    No, there is no way to recover from making that mistake if you are running RAID 0.

    Here is a guide for Data Recovery, very in depth and may offer you no luck with RAID 0 recovery but you can try >>
    Intel ICHxR RAID Data Recovery 101 - XtremeSystems Forums

    Other than that if you have a third disk you can try some programs that take days to recover your data and cost lots of $$ but again with RAID 0 this will likely be a waste of your time
