crcdisk.sys

I have a recently configured DL120 G5 HP Server running :

SBS2008 Std
2 * 500GB HDD { Mirrored }
8GB RAM
Raid 1 using local onboard adaptec raid
Server has been running perfectly until this morning.
when booting into safe mode, crcdisk.sys is where it stops.
I've tried booting into last good config, doesn't work.
Even booting into normal startup, the green MS bar keeps moving but doesn't go into OS....

any help out there?

Neither of the disks have failed, i have seen various posts regarding this issue with no real solution, however i discovered the following :

Once booting into into safe mode with cmd prompt, it stays locked onto the crcdisk.sys file for about 30 mins the system then goes into the windows 2008 OS.
Once in i ran chksdsk c: /f at command prompt and rebooted, the chkdsk then ran after which it rebooted again.
Once this was completed the server booted into its normal mode taking about 4 mins, opposed tp the nearly 50 min wait previously,then booted into the OS successfully.

I am now running the full firmware updates via the HP website :

This is what fixed my issue with the crcdisk.sys issue.
Someone said that it may also be a memory issue as i have 4 2GB Dimms installed. Maybe one of the dimms are faulty, only time will tell after this update............

One of your disks has failed I imagine.

Can you select which of the RAID 1 disks to boot from? It should be possible in the BIOS of the RAID controller, or the PC. Boot off the other one for now, and get yourself a replacement disk.

Ok, will check to see which one has failed, and confirm whether this is the case.

Just one question, is it normal for,when booting the server up, under the RAID display to show that the disks are healthy, because that's what it displays?
