Smart array P800 raid parameters

Post by draurdraur » Fri Jun 18, 2010 5:47 am

I have 3 sata disks on HP P800 Smart array controller:
1. disk1
2. disk2
3. disk3

Disks were in raid5. Raid was dissembled by accidentally but disk were not changed after that. I have followed instructions on http://www.r-tt.com/Articles/Finding_RA ... ndex.shtml to find raid parameters, and I am stuck on finding MFT. There is no MFT with 24 00 4D 00 46 00 54 pattern on any of disks. There are FILE0 patterns but no with 24 00 4D 00 46 00 54 following it.
You can find bellow process of finding parameters.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Finding Master Boot Record
Disk1
There is no 33 C0 8E D0 BC pattern
Disk2
There is no 33 C0 8E D0 BC pattern
Disk 3
There is 33 C0 8E D0 BC pattern on sector 0
Sectors preceding partition – 63

I suppose that offset is 0
Offset: 0
Is it normal to have MBR on only one disk?
Finding NTFS boot sector.

Disk1
It was found on sector 63 on address 7E00
Bytes per sector: 512
Sectors per cluster: 8
Logical Cluster Number for the file $MFT: 786432
Disk2
There is no pattern EB 52 90 4E 54 46 53 20 20 20 20
Disk3
There is no pattern EB 52 90 4E 54 46 53 20 20 20 20

I am confused because I found this pattern only on one disk, and this disk is not disk where id MBR.

Find the MFT (master file table)
