      Double post reported.

      Is this hardware mirroring or software?
      If hardware, does the BIOS raid controller show anything? -- you may need to trigger a rebuild
      What happens if you boot off one drive only?

      Tell us more about your hardware setup as well please!

        Is the boot information on both disks? It could be that the disk with the boot info on it is defective and, although you set them up as a mirror, it mirrors the files and not the boot info - a common problem with mirrors.
