SBS has died, looking for a bit of help!
Posted on 2006-07-06
Here's the scoop.
I have SBS 2003 installed on a Dell PE 2600. Today, I tried to upgrade the disks from basic to dynamic as I have done many times before. When I attempted to do so, it stated an error to the like of:::::: Cannot upgrade disk? Then I bounced the server to try it again and it blue screened and reboot itself. It is now stuck in a loop of the same and I cant get into the OS. On boot it says that 1 logical drive has been detected but no physical drives? I should also mention the C drive, at time of reboot, only had 308mb free space.
I have tried the following:
Last known good config
Boot into safe mode.
Checked the disks in utility mode (both are online and healthy)
I am debating to try a repair reinstall of SBS but have never done one. The main problem is these guys had no backup of the server, so if I can get the data back I think it would be a miracle at this point.
Any help would be great.
