I have server 2003.

IDE HDD w/ image (able to reimage)

new HDD is a SATA but my server 2003 BSOD's

I know there a fix or a way to change the table to detect the drive in windows. DOS is detecting and booting from MBR fine.


non destructive suggestions only.

Get to BIOS and change there the HDD mode from AHCI or SATA to IDE compatible. Boot to Windows. Install drivers for chipset (including driver for SATA controller) and restart - BIOS change to SATA mode (or if you install AHCI driver - change to AHCI).

You'll need to supply and install the SATA drivers before you create the image.

Ghost does not make exact disk image. Use other tools.

Both were options. I plugged as a secondary on IDE first then made image. Flipped the drives and it worked. Thanks
