Question about IBM eServer xSeries? 206m
IBM server(domain controller) type x series 206 m - 8485 IRS is having two 80GB HDDs in RAID0 confign.It is not booting and giving following message.
''Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt : system32DRIVERSpci.sys and you can attempt to repair this file by starting windows setup using the original Setup CD-ROM.Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.''
Using Windows Setup CD-ROM the message come ''No HDD detected, press F3 to reboot.''
But it is observed that initially RAID0 confign is shown with single logical drive with capacity around 158 GB.
pls suggest remedy
You mention on boot that the server shows a logical drive of 158GB, which obviously means the server is detecting the drives ok.
Quite often Windows doesn't have the correct drivers to support systems using RAID controllers such as IBM ServerRaid, so this is probably why the setup CD states "No HDD detected, press F3 to reboot". When the Windows Setup CD Boots, it should at some point (on the blue screen) at the bottom of the screen state something like "Press F6 to load additional drivers". If you can get the correct drivers from IBM website, and load them by pressing F6, Windows should be able to see the drives ok. Hopefully it will then be able to successfully repair the error.
