In my case it is Dell OptiPlex 7xx - I have it under the desk for 2y now -
but it looks like it is 5y old.
When I looked into the drives they were detected but md disks seemed to be
messed and not easy recovarable.
What I observed that only raid0 was loaded but not raid1. After removing
raid0 and loading raid1 I was able to see at least the partitions of the
drives but I did not have time to go further, so as I had to do a lot in
the office and @home I just shut it down. I hope I'll have some time next
