Re: IDR on different machine
We have had a similar problem. Went from a Dell Poweredge with one version
of a RAID controller, to another Dell Poweredge with a different RAID controller.
Went though IDR install, put in correct RAID Drivers for new machine. All
installed OK, but on Re-boot, dreaded Blue screen.
This seems to sugguest that RAID drivers are overwritten when Tape with Backup
on, is reloaded. Is this to do with the registry
being overwritten with one from tape.
Use Stanadard NT Diskettes & reload NT, when told that NT is already installed.
Take option to Upgrade installed version.
This puts RAID drivers in correct place. Machine should then re-boot OK.
This puts machine back to SP1 - Any Video drivers, etc will need to be reloaded
& the Service Packs reapplyed.
When we tried this, it kept the Shares, User profiles, etc from the disaster
Hope this helps.
