server not booting up

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a windows server 2003 that one of the drives is bad.  After it passes the bios, it tries to load windows and then it just reboots.  
I have tried to boot up with the good drive alone, nothing, then I tried to boot with the bad drive alone, does the same thing, even with both drives, still the same thing, it just won't complete booting up.  Any suggestions?  Would be much appreciated.
