Windows Server 2003 SBS and Adaptec Storage Array

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I have a Windows Server 2003 SBS that seems to lock up at startup, it has done this twice so far.  If I hard boot it comes up with no issues whatsoever.  I have disabled Automatic Updates so it shouldnt reboot on its own anymore but while I was looking through the Event logs I noticed these - \Device\Scsi\aac1: ID(0:02:0); Error Event [Cmd:0x28]

There are three events that are warnings with the event id number of 4097 and the event is AAC.  I did some searching and found that its most likely a bad disk, but I did diagnostics on both of the disks and they passed.  Does this mean possible that Disk 2 is bad according to the Storage controller?
