SBS 2003 hangs during repair
Posted on 2006-11-09
I have a white box server with Intel server mobo that recently failed after being in the field 2 months - first server I've had fail on me...after extensive t/s with Intel, it was determined that the mobo failed; replaced with identical board. After initial boot & reactivating MS; single drive comes up in SATA, however we are not able to bring up in RAID (1 - mirrored); the system errored with stop: 0x0000008E. After further troubleshooting, I attempted to repair the OS - now I get the following error and am now unable to even bring up the single drive in SATA succesfully. Any assistance would be EXTREMELY helpful - this server is critical and don't want to have to re-build!
Attempted OS repair multiple times - get the following error:
"Sub-component Distributed Transaction Coordinator raised an exception while processing the OC_COMPLETE_INSTALLATION setup message.
D:\srvtm\com\complus\dtc\ntdtcsetup\src\cdtcccore.cpp (line 793)
Error Code = 0xffffffff
The DTC service could not be installed.
- only option is to hit "OK"
- system appears to continue - movement in blocks on lower right, main screen continues to change; however does not get past 25 minutes and "completing installation" bar does not move
