I’m available at short notice tomorrow, if you want a subcontractor. You’ve got my number.

That's what I was afraid of. I'll try to get into the lab tomorrow and try to get better info on the hardware to see if that's any help.

This is just another reason to use mdadm if at all possible.  It
generally is a lot more robust when stuff like this happens.  I'm sure
some of the higher-end controllers aren't bad, but in general you
really shouldn't be touching drives on hardware controllers unless
you're planning on doing a full backup and restore.  If this is just
the cheap RAID that comes with a lot of motherboards then I suspect
you're going to have an even harder time.
