    Hi.

    I have an evaluation version of W7Pro on my server, which has expired.

    The system comprises of a single 100GB HD, which has the OS installed, and 2 x 500GB SPANNED IDE HD's holding data.

    I need to revert back to XP Pro while keeping the SPANNED disks intact - is this possible?

    I have just plugged the SPANNED disks into my main W7Pro PC - the BIOS only recognized a single HD (as 500GB), and the OS dis not recognize anything...

    What can I do?

    Demon :confused:

    Don't get me wrong, I love love love W7, but cannot afford another copy yet. I dont want to go back to XP, but I have no choice at the moment.

    So my SPANNED disks will be ok? How come they did not work on my main W7 PC?

    I have no backups... (dont laugh)

    Sorry, what stopped my main W7Pro PC from seeing the SPANNED disks? I am just trying to get my head around how W7 has SPANNED the disks...
