Hi there to everyone.
I have a big problem with my pc and I need HELP!!!!!!!!!.
I have an Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe Motherboard with two HD S-ATA raid 0 configuration.
My mobo faulted today, so I've replaced with another identical motherboard which just have an usb port faulty.
Now I have a very big problem with my Hard disk. Indeed, even if my raid configuration is well recognized during the boot process, I have problem with my three partition which are not well recognized. During PC boot I can just see the OS chose interface (I had two partition (one XP and one win7) and a third data partition) but after I choose the OS nothing happens. So I've started paragon hard disk manager professional with my boot cd and I found a surprise: the two logical partition which stored the two operation systems are recognized as one unique UNFORMATTED partition. The third partition (the extended one) is recognized as Free partition. But if I check hard disk sectors there are a lot of data, but of course not accessible.
How is it possible as I've replaced the motherboard with another identical motherboard (revisions are different, could it be the cause?). And the most important question: HOW I CAN RECOVERY MY DATA??? Do you know some specific software can do this? I really need help.
Thank you in advance.

Did you check to see if the replacement motherboard had the RAID controller enabled and is it the exact same motherboard and BIOS revision?
