I have ran HD read and write tests which went OK!!!

After that, I then formatted w/ manufacturer's disk as well as when I load Win2k Svr, I format in NTFS!!!

Then when I am loading the OS... it gets to various percents or after I have selected components then I get the BLUE GOO....

INACCESSABLE BOOT DEVICE...
BAD ADDRESS...
SOMETHING ABOUT NTFSKERNEL.EXE...
UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP !!!

DO you have a dos boot disk with fdisk handy?

If you do, boot from it, run fdisk /mbr to reset the master boot partition. Then install 2000 server.

Forget the manufacturers boot disk. I have had computers that would not recognize a hard drive when using those manufacturer's hard drive setup disks.

Thx for replying.... Yeah I cleaned the mbr.... But it looks like I am going to have to send the HD in for swap. I am awaiting for an RMA from the manufacturer.

Good thing too. My warranty ends 2/02.....

So ppl.. when yer HD is starting to act a little funky... SWAP that puppy!!!

Western Digital's are notrious for dying RIGHT after warranty ends.... And although this izza SamSung. I learned my lesson a couple of years ago.

Again.. THX for your reply.

And how did you come to the conclusion that the hard drive was bad? Just becasue you get a BSOD stating inaccessible boot device does not mean it's bad. Is this an IDE or SCSI drive? Format it as FAT, you can always convert it later.

STOP: 0x0000001E blah blah blah KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

Address 8046631E base at 8040000 DateStamp 384d5a76 - ntoskrnl.exe

Cogito Ergo Sum
I gotta trade the HD before the warranty ends anywayz so it looks like my svr will just have to wait a few weeks.
