Hi ammartahir1978,

This sounds like a widnows problem. In the system log, you should have some logs, probably from a source of save dump. Can you copy and post that.

Good Luck,

Chris

ammartahir1978,

Sorry, should have read. Not booting. Can you boot into safe mode? Press F5 during boot to get a new menu. Select Safe mode. If you can't do that, get the installation CD and load the recovery console. Run chkdsk in passive mode to check the status of the disks.

Can you boot in safe mode or not ? (maybe not as the driver is for the raid and you are booting on the raid)

I would try another driver first and then try in safe mode.

George SasIT EngineerCommented:
Another DRIVER for the SCSI adapter.
Maybe the one you try to install is not fully compatible with the OS.

George SasIT EngineerCommented:
What adapter is the one you have ? Model number etc.
Normally the mirror settings it is keept on the adapter and the disks and not on the software driver.
