Inaccessible Boot Device Blue Screen of Death; Running Chkdsk /p /r from Recovery Console, hung at 50% for long time; How do I know if it is hung?
Posted on 2006-07-08
Came in to a downed Win2K SP4 server (fully patched) that had the blue screen of death inaccessible boot device error. Research indicates anything from driver issue, to virus, to hard disk issues. Booted to recovery console and can see the hard disk. Initiated chkdsk /p /r on 40gb SATA drive. Has been stuck at 50% for almost 30 minutes. Hard disk activity lights are lit and periodically go off, but concerned that there is a familiar consistant pattern to the hard disk access that might indicate it is looped or hung. Not sure if I should allow it to continue to kill the chkdsk and try something else
