Angry Raid drivers are annoying

Ok so this is like the 4th time this has happened to me, I got a server in my shop and theres 3 drives, 1 drive is the os and the other are mirrored drives. Iam pretty sure the raid array is fine and that is where the data is. I think its the OS drive that is messed up. But... i need to get a full backup of that data on the raid. This is an older intel server board. So i go to the intel site grab the raid drivers listed i try every raid drive listed for the board and it will NOT bring up the raid set. Iam trying to load the raid driver hitting f6 when booting into the UBCD4win So i can use Acronis to do a full backup to my NAS unit. Its only seeing the frist drive which is the OS drive. Is there a solution out there that will allow you to grab data off a raid array without the raid driver.

Server Board S845WD1-E
running server 2000

Not a raid expert so take this with a grain of salt, just trying to help.

Since you aren't using striped raid, just throw one db disk in another machine and use clonezilla or similar to image it to a fresh drive. That will give you the full back up and then you can try dividing and conquering the raid drivers.
