I have a 4 disk RAID installed on Windows 2003 Server (Enterprise R2). A drive failed and was replaced, now when the system boots I see that STATUS = rebuild BOOTABLE = yes but after the "press ctrl-I for the config utility" delay completes nothing else happens.

Any suggestions? Even a way to boot to another OS and copy the files would be fine.

Thank you

Delay completes? So you're saying your OS still loads, but it takes longer to do so? Is your replacement unit the same make and model as your failed drive?

The replacement unit is a completely different model - I went from a Precision to a PowerEdge. I'm never going to trust an Intel RAID controller again - they really didn't have the slightest clue what is going on with the iastor.sys timeouts (which appear to be a common problem)
