I would agree w/ what @ewwhite said insofar as you have a really non-ideal situation here. If the other admin was kind enough to mirror the "System Reserved" partition to the other disk you could probably get away w/ booting a Windows 2012 setup DVD and running: bootsect /nt60 ALL That'll write a Windows "6.0" MBR to the disk, which in turn will attempt to ...

I thought this was answered in: Combine 2 logical raid 0 drives to 1 logical raid 1 drive If you (or the previous admin) used software RAID on the hardware array, you really need to ditch it. There's no option to rebuild or do this the right way? Perhaps shape the hardware array the way you want it to look, then restore from backup? Outside of that, I ...

I doubt you're going to be able to track down a root cause. I threw the data into a disassembler and can say reasonably confidently that it isn't x86/x64 machine language, so I sincerely doubt it was any attempt by malware to make itself persistent across reboots. It looks, to me, like an in-memory data from an application (possibly just some random heap ...

Using grub-install /dev/sdX is probably how it is intended to be done. However, I just had to rescue a CentOS 6.4 server that had that setup, but now froze at boot after its other bootable RAID 1 disk was replaced some months earlier (the server had stayed on during the meantime). What solved the issue in my case was grub-install /dev/md0, where md0 is the ...

On the host, you have to create a second virtual network that contains your iSCSI NIC's. Then you can add a NIC to the guest attached to that network. That gives you access to the iSCSI network inside the guest. However, Hyper-V does not support booting guests directly from iSCSI. You have to chainload in to iPXE or something similar. Hopefully you already ...

Check if there crash dump file in windows folder (%SystemDrive%:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP or file in \Windows\MiniDump) with corresponding date. If file is there, you can analyze it with WinDbg (Open crash dump and !analyze) and see why system not starting.

This is when the install is on the Solaris machine; In order to use the USB stick as a boot media, you will need to have the OpenBoot version higher than 4.27 (when you get to the ok prompt you see the banner that tells you your Open Boot version).. If that condition is met, you can try to use the USB stick prep by the link provided in the first response by ...

This turned out to be a very interesting question. There are lots of links out there on this topic but they are ambiguous in describing the difference/relationship between the two. Best description I've found of the hard drive configuration for a Windows OS is this one: http://www.ntfs.com/hard-disk-basics.htm. It appears that MBR and Partition Table are ...

For me the solution were missing "dm-mod", "dm-snapshot" and "dm-mirror" entries in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules. I took me quite some time to fight this issue as the error messages were talking about "mdadm" and raid - so how should one guess that lvm is the issue. My setup: sda -> sda1 (0xfd linux raid autodetect, 500MB), sda2 (0xfd linux raid autodetect, ...

I see the same type of problem with my SuperMicro X7DCA-L with the latest BIOS (R1.2a), though I don't even have to change anything for it to happen. The machine just randomly decides to move things out of the excluded list and/or change the boot order. Sometimes I can reboot several times in a row before it happens, but it happens regularly. I'm assuming ...
