I also hypothesize that since the system could not access the i4 electronically, it also could not detect the known bad drive in the array. I’ve installed a Perc 4DC on a non dell workstation with windows 7. How does that affect the system boot? Replacing it it’s entirely a different issue Is it possible to move a degraded array dell a new system and power up?
If this works well, I’ll even be able to use the old drives no failures there as a replacement for the failed drive.
You know things are bad when your taking pictures with your cell phone.
None of the disk drive LEDs are flashing. This presented the appearance of having checked the disks on the system when in fact, no such process had taken place – the disks remained unknown to the controller. After the message, no errors and the machine started normally.
I think you’re best off using the BIOS management functionality or, better yet, just replacing the controller with something more modern. However, from what I’ve read, the Unresolved configuration mismatch The problem was – as it stated in the screenshot – that no drives were detected.

J4588 Dell PERC 4/sc 64mb SCSI Pci-x RAID Controller
Shut off old system Shut off replacement system Marked all drives in the old system with their chassis slot numbers – and marked bad drive with a red tag instead of white. Thus, this message is not indicative of a failure; perhaps it only counts physical drives not in a logical drive.
Installing on Dell with PERC 4/e RAID 5 – Drive not seen
My hypothesis is this: Will rell help to configure a new configuration and save it without initializing? This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the dfll audience of the internet. That controller is old and certainly not intended for use in desktop operating system deployments, let alone one so much newer than the controller.
I found this question which talks about “repairing” a failed mirror, but there is no clear answer on how to fix it, and I’m using a RAID5 anyway – a RAID5 which hasn’t been moved or rearranged. This was, obviously, quite a surprise as the drives were in the machine.
Is it possible to get this degraded array running again on this system? Sounds like it’s gone slightly nuts 4u is getting one config from the good drives and another slightly out of sync or invalid config from the “faulty” drive. This is really a question for Dell support “Do you have a version of Dell Array Manager for Windows 7 x64 that supports this controller?
