  1. G'day all

    My motherboard died and i had two 80GB SATA drives setup in raid 0. I'm wondering if i can save the data on the drives if i can get another motherboard with similar specs. Does anyone have any idea about what i could do to save the data from the drives?

    M/B: Gigabyte 8KNXP
    Chipset: Intel 875P / ICH5R

    Do the drives have the OS installed on them? If you get the same motherboard it should work without problems. I think you can also pull it off with any motherboard thats going to support raid 0, you will just have to repair XP to get your system to boot.

    If they don't have the OS installed you should just be able to hook it up to any raid 0 setup and the data will be fine.

    Unless of course something bad happened when your mobo fried and took the drives with it (ie - lightning).
