Hi experts, I have a windows 7 pro box 64 bit with an asus PX-8B server main board. It was built as a small "server" for serving files and running "thin stuff" TS software. It has 2 X 1TB sata drives in RAID 1. We have a power bump and since then this system cannot boot.
I ran recovery on it and it couldnt fing the OS so then followed instructions on rebuilding the BCD store. Now the system starts to boot up but during the initial windows boot screen the system restarts continually. A system recovery now reports that it cannot repair this system - consult sys admin for further instructions - love that ! Theerror info that comes with that sites a corrupt registry as an error but offers no hint on what to do with this. If I boot into safe mode the system restarts as it is displaying the fvevol.sys file during the start up process.
I can use the recovery system to browes the drive and all of the files seem to be there in the correct place. After nearly 48 hours banging away at this I have exhausted my options and need to be pointed to a different direction. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated at this stage. I would rather not do a re-install from a reformatted disk as all of the user data is still there and it appears that the OS is still there as well - hoping it might be a case of selective recovery of some core system files ?
