Hi , I have windows 2000 adv server installed which is mirrored with 120gb
serial ata disks. It worked properly for about a month or so .
But now if i restart then it does not boot . & gives the following blue screen .

Inaccessible Boot Device 0x0000007b

then i do chkdsk , it boots up again  . Now the important part is if i shutdown the

server instantly after doing chkdsk the server comes back up without any problems
I may do this 10 times in a span of 1 hour . But if i work on it for 3-5 hours
& then shut it down the same error appears & the process repeats .

The server works fanatastic if it is not shut .

Whats the issue ,

Jesse
