I have a Dell 1U 1750 server running a couple of Hitachi hard drives as a software mirrored raid. C, D, and E partitions are all on the same primary drive which was converted to dynamic. The secondary drive is also dynamic but has no partitions in it except for the ones created by the mirror. Breaking the raid I came out with 2 seperate drives, both dynamic. I can still boot the system from the original C drive but it will not boot from the secondary drive. I tried creating the Fault Boot Floppy Disc and copied the 3 files BOOT.INI, NTDETECT.COM, and the NTLDR as specified in many articles but all I get is an "invalid system disc" warning from the floppy when trying to boot. Anyone know why this isn't working?
