I've been searching for an answer all over and just can't find a solution that helps with my particular problem.
Earlier today, one of my customers was having issues with their DC. They did a hard boot and it wouldn't come back on (it didn't have a monitor and it was BSOD). They called me and I found it BSOD. Tried restarting in normal mode and same result. Tried Safe Mode and it stops at acpitabl.dat. The two different STOPs I get randomly are 0x00000024 and 0x0000000A.
It's on a Dell PowerEdge with a Cerc SATA raid controller. The problem I'm having trying to run a chkdsk is that when I boot of the CD or a WinPE, it doesn't recognize the raid controller. To install the controller drivers, it's asking for a floppy! I don't have any floppy drives and i got rid of any floppy disks a long time ago.
So if anyone has any ideas on:
-getting past the BSOD
-getting the WinPE or install CD to recognize the raid array without using a floppy
-pulling the data of the raid on another machine maybe?
-a solution to the BSOD Stop codes?
I would really appreciate it!
