Breaking software mirror disaster
Posted on 2009-02-11
I have problem with MS Server 2003 standard. Server have 3 scsi disks. 2 of them were in a software mirror. They have system on them. 3rd one have data and its not in a raid.
After breaking mirror (throu disk management) the system was unable to boot. When booting up the server, there are 2 options available:
2.boot mirror - secondary plex (something like this)
When trying to boot with first option, server just hang and there is nothing to see exacp the black screen.
When booting with 2nd option, blue screen appears. bsod with no special information (ilke irq_less_or_not_equal....)
I tryed restoring it with recovery console. try to run fixmbr, fixboot and nothing worked. finally i tryed to rebuild boot.ini with bootcfg /rebuild. the process was unsecessfull. tool was unable to write the boot.ini
Next thing i tryed was asr. At the end of the restores, everything appears successful, but an error is automatically displayed in notepad which says -
The recovery application "c:\windows\system32\asr_pfu.exe\restore\sifpath=c:\windows\repair\asr.sif" returned an error code 0x2. Since this indicated an unrecoverable error:asr cannot continue on this machine.
After this unsecessfull attempt, there is a new bsod saying irq_less_or_not_equal
i am out of ideas. Is there a hero who can help me. Thx
