Server 2003 was running very slowly, upon reboot the following error was displayed : I/O error 0x0000185 if you click ok to debug the server seems to get stuck in a loop and keeps rebooting itself, after  selecting  cancel The server eventual came up after several hours but is still very slow.

Any ideas?

Is your setup uses a RAID 5 volume?

Some searches for the error point to a HD issue.
Check server health.

new error on server.

userinit.exe application error

the instruction at 0x7c981b3e referenced memory at 0x7c981b3e. the required data was not placed into memory because of an i/o error status of 0xc0000185

check your disk health with the disk manufacturers utility .  You seem have a drive that is failing..

One of the three hard drives has failed and i have ordered a replacement. would this prevent the server from booting correctly as it is running raid 5?

The server performance will be sluggish, Degraded RAID 5 array has a performance hit.  There may have been an access to the "failing" drive that provided incorrect data i.e. IO error.
