I have a problem on an old Dell 500SC. It has been running an array on LSI CERC ATA 100 4/ch for 5 years without a problem. All of the sudden it hung. When restarting it looks like it is going to start normally. The Windows logo appears and the progress bars almost complete until it goes to a blue screen with an INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE message. The blue screen messages further suggest to run CHKDSK /F. When I check the condition of the array from F10 utilities the array is operational. Which explains why Windows sees the array to begin the boot process before it fails.
I would like to runCHKDSK from the conosle except I can't get the drivers to load for LSI CERC ATA-100 4/ch when starting repair console from the windows install disk. I get to the /S option and it is looking for a Txtsetup.oem file. The Txtsetup.oem file on my Dell driver disk for sc500 is a 1K file that has no deffinitions and does nothing to load drivers. Any clues?
