SBS2008 ftdisk bsod 0x00000058

Hello all,  I have a client that I inherited with a SBS2008 with some old parts… In it is a Promise SATA300 TX4 card with 2 1TB HDD attached. The disks are dynamic and were mirrored in SBS2008. The Primary disk has failed and when I go to boot off the secondary disk, I get the ftdisk BSOD. I know that in server 2003 and earlier, you would create a NT fault tolerance floppy but that is for systems that use boot.ini, ntlodr ect, but not for 2008+. I have the SBS disk and can see the files but how do I set the secondary disk to be the boot disk (assuming that this is what needs to be done). If I run bootcgf.exe I get an error about boot.ini missing or not available.

Set it active for booting and try running a chkdsk /f.

SBS 2008 does have a separate repair disk,you could try running that too.

Looks like I was able to resolve this issue by booting to the SBS2008 disk 1, repair, command prompt. diskpart, list disks, select disk 0, repair disk 0... This re-synced the dynamic mirror. I waited over night and now i am able to get to the Applying security policy screen. Its been stuck on this for about 2 hrs... I know that there is a way to by pass this so I will give it some more time to complete on its own.
