    Earlier today, a colleague of mine installed True Image Server v7 on an IBM Netfinity 4500R Server with a RAID 5 array running under Windows 2000 with catastrophic results. The box now repeatedly reboots itself as it displays the Windows 2000 start screen.

    Ironically, the reason he was installing it was to image this critical server so we could migrate away from Ultrabac. Of course now we are looking at restoring from our last Ultrabac backup unless we find another way to go.

    Any ideas on how to fix this ?

    I doubt that Acronis caused this problem. I suspect your master
    boot record is hosed this will cause the loop you are taking about.

    create a win98 or 95 or dos 6.22 boot disk
    Make sure fdisk is on that boot disk.

    Boot from the floppy


    fdisk /mbr


    Re-boot pc

    Note before you do this if you are using a ide based raid controller put
    the primary ide on a standard ide port so that fdisk can see the harddrive.

    Or go to download freedos and use their version of fdisk.
