Server not responding _ software or hardware??

I recently changed a RAID 1 and this took around 20 hrs to rebuild and when it did it took around 3 hours to Windows to start sticking on computer and user settings for around 70 minutes each.

Anyway, when it did start up the programs were not responding. Click and nothing.

I had a backup using SSR 2011 that had everything except for a couple of hours work so to save time I reinstalled the system partition with a view to reloading the data when everything was up and running.

All was fine until I went to recover the data from the backup and the system stopped responding again both by mouse and keyboard.

I've not experienced this before - is this likely to be hardware or software?

One other strange thing, the RAID drives aren't seen when the uSB backup drive is connected.

Thanks for any ideas.

Does the system start in safe mode? Let me know?
Sounds like a hardware issue. Start by checking your raid drivers.
Also make sure your network cards are active andmain network card is plugged in. SBS needs its network connections to start.
