    Whenever i log into windows, it'll boot up partially and give me a blue screen. So i tired to format thinking that it would take care of the problem. Popped in the windows disk got to the point where it asks if i want to partition the hard drives and tells me that it was unable to find a hard disk. But i can access everything in safe mode so i know that the HD's are readable. I've been ****ing with this for a few weeks now and am about ready to though the damn thing through a window.. Any advice or answers would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time!

    Don't now what the issue is exactly but can you borrow/access another computer, attach the hard drive, format it, and give it another go in your computer?

    Is there more than one hard drive and neither show up? You could try resetting BIOS.

    Aha, that changes things. Hopefully someone with a lot of RAID experience will find this thread and help you out. For whatever reason, the spanned volume seems to be corrupt. I don't know the proper procedure for fixing this. This will give it a bump. Hope you find your solution.
