    Have just inherited a customer whose SBS 2000 server has just fallen over.
    Investigation found the primary drive in a mirror set (with system) had
    failed. Normally this would be an easy fix by booting to the secondary
    drive. BUT the spanner in the works here is that the primary drive is an
    IDE drive and the secondary is SCSI. After a bit of trial and error was
    able to boot windows off the scsi drive using a boot disk but got the
    following error:

    ***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF741B84C,0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)

    Have done a bit of research but cannot find a solution or any info on issues
    with recovery after mixing SCSI and IDE drives in mirror sets.

    Any ideas any one before I start on a reinstall and restore? Would prefer
    not to do this being a server I am not familiar with and not knowing what
    the backups contain. Am currently installing a fresh copy of Win2K Svr onto
    another SCSI disk so I can maybe check that the data on the drive is intact
    (realise I will need to import the dynamic disk and then may need to do some
    registry editting if I need to boot it again)

    Thanks for your help.
