NTLDR not found (using raid 0)

  1. Because of "brown-out", manufacturer replaced MB. Now get "NTLDR not found" at start-up from two RAID 0 HDD. Installed XP on third HD and booted from that, but raid array is not seen. Anyone know if there is a way for me to get personal data off two raid 0 HDD before I reformat? Saw an earlier post response from "Per Hansson" (few years old) who was having same problem, but no info on if he/she solved problem. THANKS for any info!!

    Found an excellent program that did the trick. It's called "GetDataBack" at

    The problem of windows not seeing my HDD was no problem for this program. In less than an hour, it had deciphered all the bits on my RAID 0 array, and showed me everything in an explorer-like window. I did have to purchase a licence to copy the files to another drive, but it was well worth it (and cheaper than a repair shop wanted to charge me, but they couldn't even do it).

    Just FYI for anyone who finds themselves with the same problem.
