NT 4.00 Imaged Drive Problems

October 1, 2009 at 08:01:33
Specs: Windows NT 4.00
We have a machine that the hard drive was imaged, that image was put on another drive. Now both drives when hooked up show a blue screen stop message. The message is inaccessible_boot_device, along with it in the bug check section are some other numbers.
In the driver information section of the screen it shows all the drivers that loaded. In the kernel build number and stack dump section there are other numbers and all along the right side of that it says ntoskrnl.
I can't set it up to do a memory dump file so as to look at that, because the hard drive never boots past that screen.
Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing the blue stop screen or how to get a memory dump file to read, for further troubleshooting of the drive?

Go back to the single drive and try to boot. Does it?

This is a one drive machine, so I'm just hooking one up at a time. It doesn't matter which drive I try, the blue stop screen will come up.

If both fail then could be you damaged some cable, connector or chip in the process, Some power, bios hard drive issue. Still possible that your application damaged data on the drive.

Put a known good drive in and try to load the nt floppies or cd. See if you can get it back working at all with everything but the suspect drives. Also could run live linux cd. Could run barts or ubcd4win and try to ntbackup the drive is only system files are bad.

Could try debug boot and see where it stops and try to repair it.

Thank you for your reply, I thought the same thing and tried the drives in a different computer, that computer shows the same bsod. Unfortunately we don't have windows nt cd's , but I did try to run boot disks, with not much luck.
We tried to get a memory dump file from it, but it doesn't boot up to be able to set it for a dump file, do you know how to have it do one w/o it completely booting?
It looks like the ubcd4win can't be used for a windows nt system below service pack 6, ours is sp3.
