UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

Hello all,

I've had to reset the server and when I rebooted it I've seen this message:

UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME
 
(..)
 
STOP: 0x000000ED (0x8616IE30, 0XC000009C, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)"

Anybody can help to solve this matter?
I'm using SBS 2003 Premium.

if this is a drive attached to a ide raid controller, sata or scsi drive this error can be caused by a corrupt driver for the controler the drive is a ttached to

in this case a repair install wil work.

This hard drive is on a dedicated server and I can get access directly. I always connect by terminal server. There are SAT in this place and they will change the hard drive. But I don't know if with this action the problem will be solved.
