View Full Version : [kubuntu] Windows XP x64 won't boot after raid drive replacement

September 21st, 2008, 09:14 PM
I hope i got the right area for this. If not, I apologize.

I have a system with an Asus M2N32-SLi Deluxe Wireless mobo.

I had 3 250GB drives in a raid-1 array with Kubuntu 7.04 and Windows XP x64 dualbooting using GRUB.

I backed up all my drives and replaced my 3 250GB drives with 3 500GB drives, then restored all my drives.

After this, GRUB loaded Kubuntu fine. However, XP x64 would go to the point where it said "Starting Up..." and would freeze.

I tried doing the fixmbr, and that did nothing. I then updated my Kubuntu to 8.04 and had it re-install GRUB, but I still get to the same point starting XP.

Does anyone have any pointers on what could be happening?

I only use window to play games now, but I have a ton of data on there. I have everything backed up and the old drives in case I can't find a resolution to getting the 3 500GB drives to work.

I would really appreciate any help. If there are any questions, please ask them and I will answer asap to try and get things working again.

Thanks very much in advance.
