netware 4.11 can't boot -hangs on mounting sys- says mirrored partitions are out of synch

When the server boots, it hangs on "Mounting Volume Sys...Scanning directory. Error message above states " mirrored partitions are out of synch"


Is there a way I can get it to boot? Possibly disabling mirroring (for the time being) or disconnecting one drive.
System is Pentium III 450 with 128 Mgs Ram and TWO 9.1 gbs of SCSI Drives.

Thanks

You can try disconnecting one of the drives, keep the one with the DOS boot  partition on it, but you don't know whether that drive failed.

Have yo utried booting the system with "server /ns"?

Thank you, That was what I wanted to do, but was looking for some validation that it would come back up in that state. Now it is up, and I just have to get a new disk.
Thanks
