Help! I screwed up a server!


So I figured while I was hitting up other sites trying to find other information regarding the issue that I am currently having with a video server.

Now I am not too familiar with all the configurations of the server. I know it had 5 harddrives in it, one with the operating system and the other for in a RAID configuration. It has two SATA-MV8 cards and the OS is CentOS 4.4. I added four more drives this morning with the intention of having a second RAID configuration. When I added the four drives and booted the system one drive wasn't initializing. So I tried the drive in various configurations however, still landed at the same spot (the drive wouldn't initialize).

So I took that drive out and tried booting the system with the original drives only. The bios sees the drives however, when it gets into CentOS I get the following error

Code:
fsck.ext3 invalid argument while trying to open dev md0
Any thoughts?

So far it doesn't look good. Though I am hoping that the data is still on the drives.

Wait... when you say card wasn't seated properly, what kind of card? only card that I can think of, off of the top of my head that could produce that kind of error is a hardware raid card... which would ask the question why is it using software raid?
