my Windows 7 crashed and put the fake-RAID1 in Verify-state.

Previously the verification of the fakeRAID1 was possible with SuSE
12.1 like this:

cat /proc/mdstat
Personalities : [raid1] [raid0] [raid10] [raid6] [raid5] [raid4]
md126 : active raid1 sdc[1] sdd[0]
1953511424 blocks super external:/md127/0 [2/2] [UU]
[==>..................] resync = 10.5%
[(205884736/1953511556) finish=361.1min speed=80657K/sec

md127 : inactive sdc[1](S) sdd[0](S)
6056 blocks super external:imsm

unused devices: <none>

But now there is a different situation:
the whole thing does not boot to SUSE12.1, boot partiton is on some
SSD and it says that it does not find
which is the boot partition according to /boot/grub/menu.lst .

But I guess the RAID1 is the problem to be solved first, since in the
Verify-state it does not come up: cat /proc/mdstat
Personalities : [raid1] [raid0] [raid10] [raid6] [raid5] [raid4]
md126 : inactive sdc[1] sdd[0]
3907023112 blocks super external:-md127/0

md127 : inactive sdc[1](S) sdd[0](S)
6056 blocks super external:imsm

unused devices: <none>

I am not that RAID expert so any help to activate this fakeRAID1 and
start verifying would be appreciated.

Any ideas how to get this Intel fake-RAID1 active again?

Isn't this more likely a job for some Intel utility or BIOS setup? I
have never played with mdadm and external raid setups though.

I have also thought of putting one of the fake-RAID1 HDDs out of the machine,
make a backup of the most important things (will take quite long) with some
USB-SATA-adapter and then try the BIOS setup of the RAID.
But since mdadm was once able to do the verification I have the idea that this
would be some better way to let mdadm switch on the verification of the raid1.

Completely lost here at the moment.

thanks in advance
