    Intel ICH9R - Storage Matrix - RAID 5 Degraded, Won't Boot

    JHMarshIII

      I have a Intel ICH9R SATA controller on a PowerSpec S400, running the Storage Matrix 7.9.  After a reboot the server would not restart citing a Disk Error, Press Control Alt Del to restart.  No way out of that loop.

       

      I can get to the Cntrl + I Menu where I am presented with 3 bad options.   If the machine can't reboot, it can't heal the array.  Is there a way to force the array to heal while still in POST? 

       

      I also tried to use a Windows 2008 Server boot disk to maybe do a fixmbr, etc.  But the Windows installation cannot be found.   Do  I have to load PCI SATA drivers first?
