I have a windows 2008 std 32 bit server and for some reason it thinks it has a hard drive that does not exist, could anyone one let me know how to manually remove this drive from the registry it is hard disk 2, the server keeps locking up because it is continually trying to access a drive that is not there.

Hope someone can help

Is there some program or process that might be using this drive assignment? If so, I would look into ending that, then dealing with the drive itself.
