    XP with RST RAID 1 won't boot

    Ken

      A friend brought me his Windows XP Pro machine that uses Intel RST Raid 1 (mirror) that cannot boot. He told me Avast flagged some files after yesterday's Windows Updates and he agreed to let it remove them. I don't know what the files were.

       

      Upon rebooting, an error message comes up. Raid config says status is Rebuild & that it is bootable. Error on boot says Reboot & Select proper Boot device.

       

      I tried booting to an XP Pro setup disk, but I get a BSOD just before it finishes loading. I am not overly familiar with Raid setups and am unsure how to proceed. Any advice to help me get this thing booting up again would be much appreciated.
