0xc00000225 raid drive replaced

    Question

  • I got boot error 0xc00000225 when I replaced a hard drive in a software RAID 1 setup on Server 2008 R2.

    The disk has the same geometry as the old one, but obviously it is another disk and Windows does not seem to like that.

    I think it would be possible to repair it with an installation disk, but my server provider does not have one, and I cannot find the right image that I need to burn.

    I can modify the registry if necessary, but I do not have bcdedit.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Hi,

    It seems that you installed your operation system on a software RAID1.

    In current situation, perform a startup repair with a Windows installation CD should help on fixing BCD. However you may not able to repair the RAID1 but need to create it. We may discuss it later.

  • Your raid seem corrupted. Does it boot while only one drive is in ?

    If that a third part driver for the SCSI, can you enable boot logging to see what file is missing in worst case ?

    It will save the log file in the Windows's folder, so you need to read the file with a bootable CD in exemple.

    If it's a built-in driver you will have to find the correct ISO to boot with it to repeir :|

  • Thanks for your response, Yagmoth. The problem is compounded by the fact that Windows is installed on GPT-partitioned hard drive, necessary for disks greater than 2TB in size. I read on another forum that the recovery option does not work for GPT-partitioned disks, so I need instructions on how to manually repair the BCD, possibly from inside another Windows installation or the prompt made available by the installation DVD.

    If you got a error in the boot if you replace a disk in a degraded array, it mean your array was corrupted. (The disk that failed did had information the alive disk does not have)

    Let us know if you were able to repair like Shaon Shan tell, or if atleast you can read the bootlogging to get a diagnostic path.
