Let me start off with what happend today. I was minding my own business when all the sudden I got a call from an office I do work for. They were looking to clear some space off their C drive. They had NO SPACE LEFT. I told them to run the disk Cleanup, they did. Upon restart, all these files could not be found. I ran CHKDSK, I replaced the files, etc. I tried everything. I said **** this, got their most recent backup and decided to reformat the damn thing, then restore the backup. Sounds like a piece of cake. Well, I reconfigure their raid to allow more space for the c drive. I then proceed to the setup disk.
I partition the drives, and the windows disk copies everything over, reboots, and gets into the normal setup. But get this. Randomly I recieve BSOD screens. Some relating to 0x07f, and some to 0x08e and 8f. I researched these and could not find squat. Sometimes it will happen at the "Detecting Devices" screen, sometimes during "Copying Files". But I tried everything. Full Formats, Checking and changing raid arrays. But to no avail. I have no idea whats wrong!!!
If I cant find any help tonight, then in the morning im going to put their PERC drivers onto a floppy, and install windows 2000 Advanced server, then upgrade from there. If it dosnt give me blue screens left and right. UGH I HATE THIS!!! Any Suggestions?
BTW its a Poweredge 2600 Server. Blue light is on meaning it is A OK
