Server 2008 R2 Image Restore to Dell Perc H710
Posted on 2016-08-27
I have a Dell PowerEdge T320 running Windows Server 2008 R2 with a Perc H710 in RAID 1 that got hit with ransomware. I wanted to restore a clean image that was created with Active@ Disk Image. Using Active@ Boot Disk the restore completed successfully. Upon booting up I get a "Windows failed to start......Status: 0xc000000e Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible."
I restarted the computer with the Server 2008 R2 DVD and clicked "Repair Your Computer". No operating system was listed so I continued on to the command prompt. Under X:\Sources I tried running bcdedit but the file was not found. I then tried x:\sources\recovery\StartRep.exe but that was unable to repair. I then ran DISKPART> List vol and the only volume that was found was the DVD
I rebooted the server using Active@ Boot Disk and opened a command prompt. From there I was able to see all of my data including:
I am assuming that all I need to do is repair the bootmgr so windows knows where to find the OS, but I am lost as to how.
