Windows Server 2003 in raid 0, had a power outage this weekend and now i am getting BSOD "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" with a320raid.sys address f7274732 base at f7267000 error. I can get into the server via safe mode. "last known configuration" did not work.

Help!

Can you save and post a copy of each Event Viewer log for system and application after you log in using safe mode?

Do you have SCSI hard drives in the machine or anything SCSI, you might need a firmware update.

Check to see if you have an Adaptec Storage Manager application. If you do, run it and see if it will repair the degraded situation.

I read on a website where that there was an Adaptec Storage Manager Agent (apparently either comes with the drive or can be downloaded) that is useful in repairing that particular problem.


Here is an Adaptec User's Guide (180 pages) that might give some type of clue. I will look for a link to the Adaptec Storage Manager Agent to download if you can't find it.

Awesome; I was afraid that was the issue when you said that the BSOD came up just when you tried to use the Adaptec app to troubleshoot it. At least you can get back to normal now.
