Re: Problems with booting
For any new hard disk first you have to create a partition table. Usually this is done when installing the OS. eg: for win98 you have to first create the partition in dos, format it, then run win98 setup. Now in WinXP this can be done when installing the OS. Similarly you may have to create the partition before runing UNIX setup. I Dont know the installation for UNIX. Usually the hard disk manufacturer supplies with some utility to do the partition. Like Disk Manager from Seagate.

There are several component we need to consider in order for us to give you a more appropriate solution to your dilemma.
1. There are pin configuration at the back of your hard drive which can be switched from one combination to another. These pins is for boot sequencing. Try switching your hard drive pin configuration from master or slave to auto detect or IDE detect. 2. IDE cable must be inserted correctly. IDE cables have red lining on one side which indicates the proper insertion. Red Lining must be facing the red wire from the power supply cord. Try looking a closer look.
However, we need to ask you a few questions to give you a more direct answer. Kindly provide the following. 1. Is you hard drive an IDE type it SATA. 2. Motherboard specs. 3. Memory allotted.
Should you have any questions, feel free to approach us.
Revert back to original configuration of hdd in your RAID setup. Boot to SCIS BIOS and double check functionality of hard drives. The error is probably telling you that Disk1 is degraded because disk 0 is failing and you removed the wrong hard drive.
file system is another memory space ,where it stores the address of the data i.e,(datas in harddisk) .
ex:(songs in harddisk) if u click the .mp3 icon.. they pointer wil move to the filesystem and searches for the address (harddisk address)... then the pointer jumps to the harddisk address... then song plays
I don't really understand what you have installed.
If Vist is Vista , then you should do it on a PC, not a server.
When we install new servers with many patches , service packs , applications etc., we make ASR after each path , pack , app. This way if anything happens , we just use the ASR to put back to last wotking install. Please try that method .
