SBS2008 Showing drive is corrupted and unreadable
Posted on 2011-02-14
We've got an SBS2008 Dell server that we had scheduled a disk check on reboot as there were a couple of errors showing on the disk. This then rebooted and the diskcheck then ran but the server was powered off before it finshed (powered off by the on/ off button being pressed in. Now when we try and boot the server it goes to the splash screen with the bar rolling across from left to right then reboots and loops.
We have popped the server DVD in and gone to repair my computer and selected the command prompt but when we try and manually run CHKDSK on the OS drive it comes up with drive is corrupted and unreadable.
We do not have a current backup as it has been failing due to the disk errors.
Any advice (apart from formatting the drive) would be great.
