"Error Occurred(0)" with RAID 0. What does it mean?

Threaded View
During boot up, one of my two week old hard disks in my RAID 0 is now  
reporting this error:

"Error Occurred(0)"

I googled for this error message and found only one other person that  
reported this error and his screen snapshot is nearly identical to my  


None of the responses that I read in that thread were helpful to me.

Using Western Digital diagnostic tools, I tested each drive and no  
errors in either drive were discovered. Chkdsk also reported no errors.

 From the time I first observed this error message some days ago, the  
computer has been working without any apparent problems (boots up and  
runs just fine) but the error message is driving me nuts.

I have two of these disks:

Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD3200KS 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA

RAID 0 with Intel Matrix Storage Manager

Motherboard: ASUS P5B-E (latest BIOS installed).

Intel ICH86/DO/DH SATA RAID Controller:
    Driver date: 5/11/06
    Driver version:

JMicron JMB36X Controller:
    Device type: SCSI and RAID controllers
    Manufacturer: JMicron Technology
    Driver date: 12/5/2006
    Driver version:

Device manager reports no errors for either of the above controllers.

XP Professional.  All service packs and updates installed.

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can resolve this error message?

Re: "Error Occurred(0)" with RAID 0. What does it mean?

I have figured out how to resolve this issue:

First you should check your hard drives (run a diagnostic utility) to
make sure in fact there is no problem (not required). This utility was
built into the BIOS of my machine which was from 2004, so you should
probably have the same. Anyway:

I installed the Intel Matrix Storage Manager which IS compatible with
my hardware (even though my hardware was very old - from 2004). Then
follow these steps to resolve the issue: Launch the Intel Matrix Storage
Console software that you now have from the installation and open up the
tree view to examine my drives. In here the drives show the reported
error as well. Right-click on each drive and select the popup menu
option "Mark as Normal". Upon the next reboot the problem has gone away
- and has not come back since.
