    I have a Windows 2003 server w/Exchange 2003 running (or was) on a Dell 2650
    RAID 5 environment. Upon a re-boot I got the error "Windows could not start
    ....file missing or corrupt \system32\drivers\ntfs.sys.

    I renamed ntfs.sys to ntfs.old and cpoied the file from the installation
    disk vis recovery console, yet upon re-boot I get the same error.

    Is the only option an in-place repair?

  2. Hello JM_Metal,

    Before playing around you should create an image from the server, to have
    always a point to go back if something goes wrong during your search.

    Check out this one, should help you, even if 2003 is not mentioned:

    Best regards
