DONT RECOGNIZE HARD DISK

  • I have an XPS 630i that was burned down to the source of power, and now that I replace this it don't recognize the hard drive, this machine is one of the managers of my work and they sent her to repair with another technician, and now that I have it I can´t make it recognize the hard disk, i think that is setting in the raid array. I hope you can help me. Thousand thanks in advance.

    If this XPS 630i was ". . . an XPS 630i that was burned . . . ", I am surprised you can do anything.   

    Dump Raid.  Dump McAfee security programs.

    Reinstall OS on a NEW SSD  - faster than raid.   For backup, use Acronis or some other program designed to backup to external drive (or cloud).  Acronis has many other advantages like cloning your HD or SSD; making an Image of your drive(s); easy transfer of old drive to new drive,; etc.
