MISSING OPERATING SYSTEM on Windows Server 2008 R2
'Missing operating system' - this message flashed after the splash screen of the server, instead of booting into Windows Server 2008 R2. No tampering has been done. The OS is original.
When consulted over phone with the engineer (provider company), he confidently mentioned - after consulting someone else ei ei prob hochhey ki kora lagbey - APNAR OS CORRUPT HOYE GESEY. REINSTALL DEWA LAGBEY. CD, KEY SHOB ANBEN.
Now my question - is he correct or can it be solved more efficiently?
, @every1 else
I'm assuming he's never heard of the Windows Repair feature? <_<;
Yeah Codex is right
most probably bad connection or dust problem if no harmul thing has been recently installed
Either that or the HDD is dead - probably more probable.
HDD's are in RAID 1. Both would be gone? HDD's purchased abt a little more than 1 yr.
I'll chk tomorrow.
Software raid 1? Usually pretty terrible, unless you guys shelved out on some LSi gear, hm.
Check status of the raid for the first thing.
LSi gear? Since I'm asking def we shelved whatever that is.
You will need a Windows 7 x64 DVD.
1. Boot from your Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 DVD.
3. Command Prompt
(Change the C: drive letter to the new drive letter the installation CD assigned to the RAID)
bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup

Reason: Found better answer.
That's assuming the RAID is even operational, which doesn't look like the case to me.
Thanks for all ur input.
The issue is resolved.
cud've been right. Disconnected everything and dusted the whole machine in, out. After re-connection, booted just fine. Checked, rechecked, worked on it and restarted after every 15 min. Seemed ok.
Wonder what caused it in the first place.
