Specs: Server 2003, PIII./512 MB
Hi expertise,

I have a IBM old server which was working fine with windows server 2003. this morning I got a problem that it hang at boot stage. I hard boot it and restarted, It shows the windows booting logo progress, after some time it goes to black screen,
I connected that SCSI drive to another IBM server and scan the C drive, it scanned and successfully boot in that system and works fine, than I reconnected back that SCSI drive in its previous IBM server, Again getting same problem.

There are two more SATA HDD connected in that server to one channel as primery and slave. whenever I remove power connection it boots fine, but its not working if I connect back that HDD power. it means its working fine with single HDD(SCSI), but not when connect SATA Drive.

Plz assist me..

There is GOD where there is true smile for someone...

Do you have SATA HDDs connected to an IDE channel by using some sort of adapters? Because there is no "primery and slave" with SATA, each SATA drive is on it's own SATA channel.
