Question about Dell PowerEdge 2500 Server
In this situation I would start by testing the hard drive then the RAM.
For the hard drive find out the manufacturers name and download their test program.
For the RAM test I have used a free program call memtest86 with very good results.
If the problem is the hard drive, you may be able to install a hard drive of the same size and using an imaging program copy the old drive to the new drive. Re-run the recovery program. My suspicions are that the old drive has developed bad clusters near the beginning where the operating system is and some of the files have become corrupt.
If the RAM fails the test replace the RAM and try again.
