Windows 2000 Server RAID 5....One hard drive failed..!!!!
Posted on 2004-04-27
Hi Experts I have a Windows 2000 server with 3 hard drivesw setup with hardware RAID5 ( ADAPTEC) ..This morning I found that one for the drives failed so I did a "REBUILD" from the other 2 hard drives through the RAID UTILITY from ADAPTEC wich can be accessed before the Server starts to boot. The Rebuliding seemed to go fine, now the status for the 3 drives is "healthy".
The problem is that Windows 2000 is not booting....it locks up at the DOS portion of booting where you see "windows is starting up" message with a white line at the bottom of the screen that gets filled up to the middle and it stops....
i tried 'last good known config" it didnt work.....i tried the recovery console and windows is not recognizing the admin password..........those are 3 SCSI har drives...please help!!!
