I have an older PowerEdge 1600SC w/ onboard SCSI controller (win2k sbs). It died Friday, and I've determined that the onboard SCSI controller has failed. I've disabled the onboard SCSI and threw in another card, but I get inaccessible boot device 0x000007B.
I read that I will receive this message when the mass storage controller is changed (http://www.motherboard.windowsreinstall.com/problems.htm
It starts to boot, looked promising, then blue screen.
I'm able to boot from CD and go to recovery console. Can't run chkdsk.
Wasn't sure what other peoples thoughts were on this. I was debating doing a Windows Repair, but since its running AD, Exchange, etc., I was hesitant. I really don't want to redo this thing from scratch, but getting a replacement MB from Dell will take until at least Tuesday (at the earliest), and I don't want to be down that long.
Looking for thoughts/suggestions. Read to try a fdisk /mbr, but since it was booting, wasn't sure that would do anything.
