Hi

Looks like a controller issue. What controller/server box is this? Do you have server warranty or component warranty on your setup, if so see whether you can get a replacement controller card.

Do you get any POST error report, array status?

The only time you get the above (inaccessible boot device....) if you just perform the following change:
 - Moving a boot drive from one computer to another or replacing the boot hard drive that RAID 5 did not recover correctly
 - Upgrading the motherboard in your computer
 - Or the server was reboot by power surge damage.
Otherwise, your server get infected by a virus that could damage the boot sector or the hard drive is bad with corrupted sector. If your server was suffer a power surge, be sure the motherboard is OK. If the server was infected by virus, check the following article from Microsoft to see if you can get it fixed.

You also want to Run CHKDSK /F to check and fix hard drive curruption, but do this step last because it will hard fix your disk and overwrite the old info.

Make sure you don't have any floppy disks, CDs, or bootable USB devices in the machine... just a sanity check.

Update or reinstall controller drivers. For Windows 2000, you may have problem to download update driver. Anyway, if you cannot get the updated driver version, try to reinstall the current driver and let us know if the problem is persisted.

As said, it seems to be a controller issue, please let us know which controller you have, if it has a supplimentary power pack, that may be failing....
all the best
