This was a working machine until a few days ago. Now it won't boot into the OS, during startup it makes clicking sounds (I think from one of the drives).
Installed OS: Windows 2003 Web edition
Hardware: Gigabyte GA-8I945P Pro , 2*160G Sata in RAID1 configuration , 2 Volumes – 25G and the rest.
When I installed windows on it, during setup, I pressed F6 and used ICH7DH drivers of RAID.
The manual for the motherboard says:
Step 1: After the POST memory test begins and before the operating system boot begins, look for a message which says "Press to enter Configuration utility" (Figure 4). Press CTRL + I to enter the RAID BIOS setup utility.
But the machine never shows this message.
BIOS SATA RAID/AHCI Mode is set to RAID.
Any ideas or pointers on what I can do to recover my data?
