  1. Hello, This is my 1st post here and I have read many others here in the past and see you all know your stuff.....I need your help this time.

    I opened my computer today to clean out the dust bunnies and I unplugged the SATA RAID cables and I swear I put them back the same but now when I start my comp it goes to:

    Reboot and Select proper Boot device
    or Insert Boot Media in selected boot device and press enter_

    I lost my windows pro disk when I moved and I have no idea what to do?

    I know I had Raid 0......which I have no clue what that is either....please someone computer literate help?

    Raid 0 would be 2 drives in high performance mode.

    Indeed.... Although RAID 0 can include more than 2 disks.

    I thought for say, 4 drives it something called RAID 5 (can't quite remember kinda of tired). It basically does the same thing but with 4 drives as compared to two. Thus different raid.
