The second NTFS boot sector is unwriteable
Posted on 2010-08-31
This problem is affecting 3 new sperate HP Proliant running SBS2008.
Basically the problem came to light when using msbackup to take a full copy of the servers in question. Basdically the backup gets to 100% and then fails with the error that the destination device is not available. Microsoft have been looking at this for weeks, and we eventually found that when we started the server in recovery mode and opened the command prompt, entering CHKDSK /f - we get the error The second NTFS boot sector is unwriteable.
We have 2 SATA drives configured in a simple RAID 1 mirror using the on board RAID controller of the Proliant ML360 G5p server.
Has anyone else experienced this problem or know what we can do to resolve it?
