Hello everyone,
A major storm in the NYC area caused a power outage overnight.  This morning I attempted to boot up a Win 2000 Server without success.  I received the following message about 3/4 of the way through the WIN 2000 Server splash screen:
_______________
Stop: 0X0000007B (0X85CF7630, OXC0000032, 0X00000000, 0X00000000) INACCESIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE
If this is the first time you received this error, restart your computer...
Check for viruses on your computer.  Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers.  Check your hard drive to make sure it is properply configured and terminated.  Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer .
________________________
Additional Information:
The server is a Dell Poweredge 2600, RAID 5, 3 x 30GB SCSI Drives
1 Logical and 0 physical drives identified


Here is what i tried so far:
F10 - Utility Partition - CTRL + M - PERC/CERC BIOS Configuration Utility - Ran Consistency Check
F10 - WEB BIOS - CTRL - H - Scan Devices (all indicate: ON STATE)
Attempted to run Repair - via Windows 2000 setup, however setup did not find any hard disks installed
Attempted to load last know good configuration, but received the same result - blue screen

Any advice would help. thanks
len

Usually, running checkdisk (chkdsk.exe) on the volume will correct the problem. You need to put the storage driver for your machine onto a diskette, and then press F6 at the beginning of the setup CD boot process (when it prompt to "Press F6 for additional mass storage controllers"). You can then use the recovery console to run checkdisk (chkdsk).
