    Hey friends i need some help because i cannot find out how to bring that server to run.
    A guess the hard disk that has the operating system installed has physically crashed. By booting that server with a live cd i have found out that the 4 disks that are installed in that pc are dynamic disks and they are mirrored .So we have Disk with Os that has crashed.
    ( Disk 0 dynamic is mirrored with Disk 2 dynamic) ( Disk 1 dynamic mirrored with Disk 3 dynamic)....Now the problem is that the Operating system isnt running any idea how do i bring it back to work by installing a new hdd for the new OS installation ?
    Is there any chance to replace only a disk and install a brand new OS butt will the mirrored dynamic disks get back to work?
