INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE Error after power issues.
Posted on 2006-06-30
I hope that you can help me. :)
The UPS on my office manager's machine decided to flip out after we left last night. Unfortunately, she left her machine on. When I came in this morning, the UPS was clicking on and off. Likewise, the computer was turning on, starting to boot, then being shut off. It'd probably been doing this all night. I shut it off and picked up a new UPS.
As I expected, once it booted, things are not well. Part-way through the W2K start-up, I get the blue screen and an INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE stop error.
This computer acts as the server for our accounting system. It has all the data files stored on it. Today is Friday. If we can't get this machine up, payroll can't get done for the entire company. I need your help urgently.
