I have a server failed with one of its mirrored drive (Windows mirror). So I replaced the disk and turned the server on, tried to add the disk to mirror in disk management console and gets below error message. It asks to update boot.ini file, but the file  looks good.

The failed disk was (1)rdisk, the 2nd. I took out the disk, replaced the disk, then after boot, I opened the disk management console, and removed the failed disk and add the replaced disk to Mirror. No luck.

I tried to switching the added disk to basic, then dynamic back, no luck. Formatting it, then mirroring also no luck.

Anyone has a solution?
