My windows 2000 Server reboots after trying to load, and reboots and rebbots, and so on. I tried safe mode, commanl line mode with no results

I booted from the CD and the repair console option does nothing

The emergency repair asks for a emergency disk, which I do not have, and says no previos windows installation has been foud.
(The console option finds 1. c:\winnt)

I have a raid array independent form the boot disk, what can I do?

BartPE will give you access to the filesystem.  It has the "Press F6" option to load a raid driver when you boot.

It's really worth the time it takes to build.

From there you can do several things.  chkdsk the array is the first one I'd do.  Second, use the built in regedit to load the hives off the local hard drive and repair them if necessary.  An awesome thing to do is change the HKLM/System/ControlSet1/Control/CrashControl's DWORD "AutoReboot" from "1" to "0" so when you boot up next time you'll at least get the true bluescreen without the full automatic reboot.

Apologies if the above paragraph made absolutely no sense.  Let me know and I'll give you more specific instructions about editing or repairing the registry from BartPE.  This can also be done by the drive being plugged into another system, assuming you can play with the array without damaging it.

Assuming it's not a hardware problem, an in-place upgrade might be the only way to fix your issue.  I don't know how well that option plays with Active Directory, so be very careful in your decision making.

Good luck!
