Raid Boot Corrupt on PERC 200A SAS 2008-IR controller

I currently have a Older Server with a LSI SAS 2008-IR controller.  The Problem that I have is the Primary Drive (Raid  1  ) boot sector has become corrupted and now the system will not boot after a power outage (the system runs 24/7/365 with Battery Backup UPS.  We lost power for a extended time and after unit will only boot to a "C" Prompt (virtual drive). Now during the Boot Attempt is states that"Integrated RAID exception detected   Volume (HDl: 079) is in a state of Resyncing.  When entering the SAS bios configuration it states the Drive  is rebuilding.  Drive 0 is set to the primary and Drive 1 is secondary, Drive ) is Rebuilding.  This is a PERC H200A, MPT Firmware 7.15.08.00-IR, NVDATA Version 07.00.00.19.  What I need to know is if the Boot Sector was corrupted and the Drive is Rebuilding is it Rebuilding the Mirror Drive with the Corrupted Drive or is the Corrupted Drive Rebuilding from the Good Raid Drive?  This is set to a RAID 1 configuration. in the LSI Config Utility it states that the STATUS is Degraded and Task 3% Syncd.  Any information is greatly appreciated being this is the first time in Years that I have had a drive fail some how.

RE: Raid Boot Corrupt on PERC 200A SAS 2008-IR controller

Hello

The system is running off of drive 1 right now. It is rebuilding drive 0 using the data on drive 1. The boot issue you are experiencing will persist after the rebuild/resync is complete. I suggest that you run diagnostics to see if any hardware was damaged during the power loss.

HDD BOOT Failure with Raid 1 PERC H200A Controller

I currently have a Older Server (Microsoft Server 2008) with a LSI SAS 2008-IR controller.  The Problem that I have is the Primary Drive (Raid  1 ) boot sector has become corrupted and now the system will not boot after a power outage (the system runs 24/7/365 with Battery Backup UPS.  We lost power for a extended time and after unit will only boot to a "C" Prompt (virtual drive). Now during the Boot Attempt is states that"Integrated RAID exception detected   Volume (HDl: 079) is in a state of Resyncing.  When entering the SAS bios configuration it states the Drive  is rebuilding.  Drive 0 is set to the primary and Drive 1 is secondary, Drive ) is Rebuilding.  This is a PERC H200A, MPT Firmware 7.15.08.00-IR, NVDATA Version 07.00.00.19.  What I need to know is if the Boot Sector was corrupted and the Drive is Rebuilding is it Rebuilding the Mirror Drive with the Corrupted Drive or is the Corrupted Drive Rebuilding from the Good Raid Drive?  This is set to a RAID 1 configuration. in the LSI Config Utility it states that the STATUS is Degraded and Task 3% Syncd.  Any information is greatly appreciated being this is the first time in Years that I have had a drive fail some how.  How can I repair the boot with out reloading the entire system?
