PowerEdge 700 (W2K SERVER) with CERC SATA 1.5/6ch controller. 4 x SATA HDDs in RAID5 configuration (configured by Dell). Backup device/software HP Ultrium 215e/Veritas Backup Exec 9.1 The tape is connected via SCSI (Adaptec 39160).
Have created an IDR (inteliigent Disaster Recovery) image to CD-ROM using Veritas and performed a full backup (with overwrite enabled). Am testing the disaster recovery, but getting the BSOD screen (INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE) when booting from the IDR CD. Am also getting same error when using HP's OBDR via tape.
When the Windows 2000 server set-up screen appears, I have hit F6 to add the CERC controller drivers, but getting same error.
Do I need to also load the SCSI (I thought this was a standard driver already within W2K server set-up).
I've looked at some documentation from Dell/Veritas/HP/Adaptec, but all the examples they give are slightly different to my set-up, so don't know how to get around this.
Also, does anyone know if/how I can backup my existing RAID configuration as I would like this to be identical with the new rebuild.
