"failed to clear disk" error = 4  with active@ partition manager and disk image: program failed to initialize freshly created new raid volume.

I got it solved too, but took me a few hours...

When I was restoring my 1.8TB image back to a fresh Raid Volume, I got no errors and Disk Image created all the partitions and bootmanagers.

BUT the end result was incomplete! :( So I had to start over. I used the same 2 disks, and suddenly got above error. After some messing around, I decided I'd take 2 new fresh hard drives and use them to restore my system. Same problem!! Wtf??

I then used Active@ Partition tool and got the same results when I tried to initialize the raid volume. It could not be done! Wtf part 2!

On to Paragon Hard Disk Manager Pro 12. I created 1 big partition on my fresh raid volume and went back to Active@ Disk Image. This time: no problems!

Very very strange. I do not like, but got it solved :)
