I have a very strange problem with MS SW RAID-5 volume.
On a workstation, I have Windows Server 2008 R2 with System volume (HW RAID 1) and Data volume (SW RAID 5, consisting of 4 disks).
I wanted to install Windows 7 Ultimate there, so I replaced both system disks and performed clean installation of Windows 7; then I went to Disk Management and imported those 4 foreign dynamic disks - everything was OK, but after the import, the RAID-5 volume was Failed, I didn't even see original volume's name - and what's even stranger, menu items "Repair volume" or "Reactivate volume" aren't there!
When I return original drives with Windows Server 2008 R2 and reimport back these disks, volume is OK; I checked this volume by chkdsk, no problems; I did full diagnostics of all drives - but I'm unable to enable this RAID-5 in Windows 7.
Thanks for any advice or pointer, I'm quite frustrated.
