i have an HP proliant ML150 G2 running win2k3 that is getting the blue screen of death at startup. I've tried last known good and safe modes and i still get the same error. no new hardware or drivers added recently. I have data on the server that i REALLY need to get off of. All i need to do is get into the OS to get this data off and i will be happy. Of course HP support says it is an OS issue, not hardware so they won't help. The full error is:
0x0000008e (0x00000005, 0x808bc64d, 0xf7946508, 0x00000000)
i've googled the 0x0000008e error and it seems to lead to video drivers, but even in safe mode (which uses generic drivers) i still get the BSOD. Any help that anyone could lend would be appreciated.
