Cannot Boot into Windows SBS 2011 STD after changing to AHCI mode in BIOS
Posted on 2014-01-18
I've done something very foolish and I immediately regret doing it.
I was trying to create an image of my server with Acronis True Image (Bootable CD) but couldn't see the drives. I had the idea to change in BIOS from IDE to AHCI to get Acronis to see the hard drives. It didn't work so I tried to boot back into Windows but it failed. I then changed the BIOS settings back to IDE but I'm still getting the failure when booting into Windows.
Error is as follows:
0xc000000e the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.
What makes this worse is that I had 2 drives setup in a mirror meaning the hard disks are 'Dynamic' and I cannot read them in an external hard drive from another PC. It shows the drive but it has it as 'Invalid'.
Is there anything I can do to fix this issue and boot into windows on the server? Or will I need to try and rescue the data and perform a fresh install?
I'm also chasing the driver for the ServeRAID BR10il SAS/SATA Controller v2 (FRU 49Y4737)
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
