I'm getting a disk 51 warning in my 2008 server system event log:

Error detected on \device\harddisk2\dr2

How can I determine what is harddisk2 and/or dr2?

Go into control panel->admin tools->disk mgmt, it should tell you which disk is harddisk2.

harddisk2 is called Disk2: it's the third drive listed - they start indexed from 0, and it could be an optical drive or USB drive.

The \dr2 refers to the partition.  See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/159865
