Stop error 0x00000024
boot the machine with your startup CD,
select "Repair", then select "Command Console".
c:\winnt\system32\config\system to "system.bad", and
c:\winnt\system32\config\system.alt to "system".
You must suspect a hardware problem.
If this was an ordinary disk then I would do either of these:
a) Temporarily install the disk as a slave disk in some other WinXP PC, and run chkdsk /f on it; or
b) Temporarily install a spare disk in this machine (while the main disk is disconnected), install a vanilla version
of WinXP on this disk, then reconnect the problem disk so that I could check it.
In either case you could rename a suspected driver file after checking the disk.
You need to decide if either of these methods is feasible for your RAID set.
