    I am trying to do a bare metal recovery with a system that has a Promise Fastrak SX 4000 raid controller. I have my backup image on a USB 2.0 external drive. I have installed the new drives and configured the RAID 5 array successfully, and I used the Seagate software to create and configure a 360 GB partition on the RAID array.

    When I boot from the TI rescue CD, it sees the backup image on the USB external drive, but it doesn't see the new partition.

    I suspect that TI has a problem with the RAID array, even though there is a partition there for it to see. Before I removed the old disks, which had an identical configuration with the RAID controller, I checked to see if bootable TI could see the existing disk (on the RAIDcontroller) and it could.

    Anyone have any ideas or solutions?

    Thanks,
    Steve Wheatcraft
