    I have Win2008 Standard Server (32-bit) installed on a computer with 3 hard
    drives. HDD0 is IDE drive, HDD1 and HDD2 are SATA drives. HDD1 and HDD2 are
    mirrored drives(system drive). To test the mirror, I unplugged the IDE disk
    (HDD0) and the system doesn't boot at all. Any suggestion would be much
    appreciated.

  2. Hard to say - you don't tell us what messages you see on the screen. Perhaps
    the BIOS is set to boot off HDD0, which would therefore contain the Windows
    boot files.
