Win2K Crash Raid 5, Long Post


G

Guest

Hi Everyone,
If you can help, please read through the whole post and then give me your answers

I've tried everything and still getting the STOP: 0x0000007B INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVIC

And by everything I mean the following

1. PowerEdge Server, configured with Raid5 4x18Gb SCSI drives
One of these failed and Win2K reported in the Event Viewer to place the drive offline, change and restart
So, I've placed the drive offline, sure enough the server started beeping
The only drive I had available was a 36 G drive, which somehow, I managed to place in the server
Through the Perc Bios, I've rebuild the Raid5 array and all drives were back to online status, and the container
shows it's status as being Optimal. So far so good for a total of 50+gig, same as before..

2. I've restarted the server thinking, hey that's a great start to my Valentine's day weekend, but no..
STOP: 0x0000007B INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVIC

3. Time to bring out the recovery dis
STOP: 0x0000007B INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVIC

4. Time to go into the recovery consol
Now I've had access to the C: drive, chkdsk-ed it with /p and /r and reported that found some errors and fixed them
Restarted and STOP: 0x0000007B INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVIC

5. Went back to the recovery console and chkdsk-ed all partitions 5 in total, some reported some errors that were fixed
Restarted and STOP: 0x0000007B INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVIC

6. Again in the recovery console, tried the fixboot comman
STOP: 0x0000007B INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVIC

7. Last resort. in the recovery console tried the fixmbr, sure I'm sure..
STOP: 0x0000007B INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVIC

So, the only thing I can do at the moment, is see the data under the recovery console.
I'd like to have access to this data from the network somehow. I have about 90% backed up and I'd lik
to get my hands on the rest

If you know of a way to bypass this STOP: 0x0000007B INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE, I'd love to hear from you
What are my options

If you know of a way to get to this data from the network, that would be great as well
Thanx for reading this post

I did a quick search on Google and briefly scanned several hits. Most of
them talk about IDE drives. Some include other "mass storage devices" or
mention RAID. The one chant they all seem to have in common is missing or
corrupted drivers and/or resource conflicts and/or a boot sector virus.

You might be looking at a reinstall of Win2K Server atop your existing
install just to reinstall the PERC drivers.

This appears to be a file system / hardware problem. About the only
thing you can do to get to the data is put in another hard drive, make
it your boot drive and install Windows to it. You will then be able to
copy of data. Then you will need to rebuild your RAID.
