I have had 2 disk mirrored in my Windows 2003 server.
I did put 2 brand new disk into my server.
I did remove the mirror from one of the old disk.
I did then mirror the other old disk to the new disk.
Then after I did remove the partition from the old disk.
And then I did mirror the new disk to the other new disk.
but now the server don't boot.
It finds boot.ini file who only include something like
Windows(Default)
Windows(Default)

In repair mode , the system cannot find the disks, the BIOS can see them.
 What could be my problem

The server start ups to the Windows Server 2003 and stays there for several minutes and then reboot

You should break mirror, Ghost old disk to new disk (setting desired partition size), Add second new disk and recreate mirror.

Took the new disks out and putted in the old one.
Somehow the old disk is not working correctly now.  Tells me the Active directory has been corrupted. It shows error 00002e1, and I cannot log on.
This computer is Domain controller. The only one. I have backup, but prefer to fix this without the backup.
