Question about Sony StorStation FSV-M1 120 GB Hard Drive Array

StorStation fails to boot up - blue screen of death

Hi. My Sony StorStation FSV-M1 recently died. It was emmiting a beeping alarm sound. I powered it down, and now it won't boot up. It attempts to boot of the Master IDE, but fails, and displays a 'blue-screen-of-death', with instructions to run CHKDSK. I'm not sure how to repair the operating system, because the StorStation has no CD-ROM drive, only an Ultra Wide 68-pin micro centronix (Female) port. I have the original StorStation installation disk, can I put this into another PC and recover the Operating System over the LAN? Any suggestions much appreciated, JonathanH13

The beeping alarm could have been overheating. You could try taking the HDD out and putting it in a workstation to run chkdsk on it. Incidently what operating system does this model use? I have an FSV-E1 which seems to run some Unix type system.
