Hello,

  I have win2003 sp1 running DC. The server hang at acpitabl.dat after reboot with F8 key in safe mode. Other mode also cannot work.

  I found one of the disk give the beeps sound. After confirmation with Dell Support, they change the scsi hard disk and rebuilt the array. However, i still stuck at acpitabl.dat issues.

 It is Raid 5 with 4 hard disk

 After searching the internet,  i found the following article,

 http://sodeve.net/how-to-fix-windows-2003-acpitabl-dat-problem/

 I believe it may be related to the Raid 5 Issues as shown in the above article.

 Please provide the guide how can solve it with Raid 5 configuration . Can I take out some hard disk out from Raid 5 as guided by the above article.

Well the first thing it said to try was to replace the CMOS battery, did you do that yet?

I would ask Dell what they think of that procedure since you still have warrantee.  It is unfamiliar to me.  I know you can remove one hard drive and the raid will rebuild when it is replaced.  Do you know which drive is the issue?

Fantastic.

You can also do a file run:
SFC /scannow with your CD in the drive to make sure you have all the corrrect windows files.

When the windows 2003 auto update with new service pack, the old driver may not work anymore.

The server should make it manual install the driver
