Windows 7: BSOD after RAID 1 is configured

After you made them raid 1 disks did you then initialize them so they format and take forever before becoming a mirror? Just setting the config does not make a raid. So acronis saw the array but reflects PE made in the program did not see it? Also that Seagate drive is a 512 sector size disc what model is the WD's that you are now trying to use. Are they Advanced Format instead of 512?

My starting point was only seagate bootable drive with bio setting raid on. I have added we disk 500 GG blue, 7200 and using irst in windows created raid volume and data migration auromatically started. After migration was 100% I reboted the machine and ended up with Bsod. After setting back to non raid, original st disk was bootable but wd wasn't.

Like I said I have made test today without raid. Just plain backup st drive and restore to wd without raid. The result is that wd is not bootable. I am convinced now that cause of the problem doesn't have anything to do with Raid. I only noticed problem when I set raid in windows.
The fact is that I cannot make bootable copy of my original St hdd. I tried backup/restore as well as cloning options.
Ihave some settings on original disk that are responsible for non "bootability" of its copy.
I havw even installed two new hdds, on one onstalled fresh copy of win 7, and make sucessfully windows irst raid, and the volume was bootable.
Therefore problem of is on the original drive. These classic cloning software tools obviously don't make exact byte copy of original.

I' ll try to reset grouppolicies and after that I'll be without any more options. On original disk I have some software installed which I cannit install on new Hdd because I don't have installatiin disks anymore.

Thank you for your time and effort.

Are you making your image from the PE environment or the program on windows? There should not be any issue to restore to the WD disk from the seagate image. What settings are you using on the image your creating, by default it will not be sector per sector? You did say whole partition so just want to make sure you are turning off intelligent copy if that is what you want, but I have used intelligent without issues in the past. How big is the Seagate disk

For reference I mean this:

Hello,
I created image from Macrium Rescue disk to the WD drive. Then I tried to restore this image, after I had added second WD instead of ST and created RAID1 in BIOS. Macrium didn't see the RAID volume.
So I quit idea to create RAID and starting to work on a problem of unsuccessful cloning /restoring image.
Restore process ends successfully, but the drive is not bootable.
Attached is my starting point. In this configuration Windows boots from ST drive normally. After image is created to the external drive and then later restored on WD drive, windows is not bootable.
Interesting though is that there is no 100 MB reserved partition, so this windows installation was later altered.
Then I know that there are some group policies defined in the Windows. For example, in normal windows, when you change the place of the network card (different PCI slot) and start windows, card is recognized and drivers automatically installed. This doesn't happen in this windows installation. I need to go to the Device manager and manually click on update drivers automatically in order to use card again.

I'm suspecting that Group policy is responsible for this 0x0...7B starting error

Okay make the first image from within windows and just do intelligent copy. Then try to restore that to one wd. Let's start there. I think it's having issues setting your boot flag since you have extended partitions. Your driver discovery issue with slot changes is probably just this setting is off.

Hello rvcjew,
I have made intelligent image on external drive (had to install it in device manager) then restore. Indeed at the begining, the result was different. Windows didn't boot, instead it showed black screen with error 0x000000e and suggestion to use installation disk to repair. I booted from Macrium rescue and used fix Boot option. After that I experienced same old Bsod and 0x000007b.
I tried Aomei software and at 99% It failed with error that drive letter cannot be changed automatically and that I should do it manually. Windows didn't boot again. So I examined closely original drive and noticed one more thing. When plug in Usb stick, I need to go again in device manager and chose to update driver in order to see usb drive. This is not normal behavior. Also unable to automatically assign letter is not a coincidence. Therefore I have used a script found on this forum to reset group policy and tried again with AOMEI, but this time I did choose Migrate to Ssd even though I have Hdd. This went Ok and I was able to boot without problems.
I am not sure what solved the problem (reset of group policy or migration option in AOMEI), but problem is solved. It seems that migration algorithm is different comparing with clone or with intelligent restore.

Thank you very much for your help and patience.

A migration is not a clone or image, it is different. I'm glad you got it working though does your RAID not migrate over as well successfully using that software?

I gave up trying to configure raid. My goal was to increase reliabilit ant to avoid downtome caused by single hdd failure. This way I will have one spare hdd ready for replacinf in case of failure. The machine will be down very shortly. New windows installation was out of question because I cannot install existing applications. I will make from time to time a bootable copy of a disk and that's it. Aomei migration somehow manage to make bootable copy of C partition, while forensic copy and imaging in macrium or sector by sector copy of Acronis didn't solve the problem.
Thank you omce again for everything.
