Dimension XPS 4500 WinXP, Raid 0 striping shows Normal, but it gives error message Primary IDE...exceeded parameters.....F1 or F2, When it does get to Windows logo screen it just hangs as if trying to boot.
Two WD hard drives are apparent in BIOS, SATA Raid is set ON.
I have no idea what to do first. I tried to run Data Lifeguard Tools, and it wants me to do so, inside Windows...which I can't get booted into !!
They are worried about data loss and I am currently doing a full back up by way of a USB device and placing their data on another media.
Someone please lead me to step One, and so on, but I know enough to allow that you can be brief, and use abbreviations. I just dont' work with RAID that often !!
Thanks in advance.
