Default Hard Drive Issue

I have a server for recording a survelliance system. It is an older PIII computer, windows server 2000, an intel server motherboard, 1 40GB HDD for the windows drive, and 3 160GB HDD for video storage.

It recently stopped booting and was saying "No Operating System". Bios was showing the 40GB drive but not the 120 on the same cable, I pulled the 120 drive form the computer and everything boots fine now.

Could the 120 drive have failed and just been causing the problem or do I need to worry about my 40 GB drive also?

Default Re: Hard Drive Issue

The 120GB drive is very likely the culprit. Just make sure by running a hard drive diagnostic utility on the 40GB to make sure.
