I have a Dell Poweredge 2950. It is runming Windows 2003 Enterprise and Exchange
Standard 2003. Today I could not open the event viewer it said the mmc was missing.
I decided to reboot the server and no it won't start, I get the Hal.dll is missing or corrupt.
The serves has a SAS raid card Perc6i - integrated when I try to do an in place repair, it says
that it can't find the Hard Drive. This is my Mail Server so I don't wan't to completely re-install.
When I press F6 to install 3rd party drivers it says that it cannot find a floppy drive but this server does not have a floppy drive.
