Specs: Windows Server 2003
Hi I am having problem in reinstalling Window Server 2003 R2. The server system in my company was not in use for 2 years and the person in charge has forgotten the administrator password. I have no idea how to retrieve the password so i have choosen to reinstall the whole Wndow Server 2003. During the installation there was an error mess appeared.

" SETUP DID NOT FIND ANY HARD DISK DRIVES INSTALLED IN YOUR COMPUTER. MAKE SURE ANY HARD DISK DRIVES ARE POWERED ON AND PROPERLY CONNECTED TO YOUR COMPUTER AND THAT ANY DISK RELATED HARDWARE CONFIGURATION IS CORRECR. THIS MAY INVOLVE RUNNING A MANUFACTURING - SUPPLIED DIAGNOSTIC AT SETUP PROGRAMME "


How can i trace the hardware setup to know if the server is RAID configuration or not?

I am using IBM server system x3200 Types 4362 and 4363

I have checked in the connection of the hardware and it is all in order. Can anyone help me in this? thanks
