  • Help with SBS 2003 cannot perform OS repair... cannot find previous version of window

    Hello... to the group.. this is my 1st post...

    I have a SBS customer with a server that had electrical failure of multiple components.

    Replaced MB, CPU, RAM, PS, OS array & data array on addin RAID controller...
    so.. new server MB.. (different chipset...) but addin RAID controller OS should have booted... but no luck.......

    I could get into DSRM a couple of times (all HD's pased quick scan) ensured that NIC is configured & DNS entries correct... but after a few attempts to boot... just hung at the initial windows server loading screen with the scrolling bar.......

    Then attempted to perform OS repair...... got to initial screen and then errored with cannot find files from CD rom....

    now while trying to repair OS again the message that it cannot find the previous version of windows appears and no option to perform repair.....

    any suggestions???

    I am waiting for priority call back support from Microsoft.....

    Thank You
    Brian
