I have a computer system setup on a RAID controller (two HDDs setup in a mirror configuration) running Windows 2000 Server Family. When I try to boot it up it passes the RAID load fine and goes on to load the OS. While doing this, I get a BSOD with the error c0000218. It then begins to dump memory to physical memory.

-F8 Recovery console: Any options selected (including last known good configuration and command console) result in the same BSOD.
-can't get to a dos console to run chkdsk
-Booting to floppy disk is possible but it doesn't allow access to the drive itself since the RAID config has not been loaded.

I'd like to try to see if it's possible to restore the system without any data loss because there's a program on there I need to check the configuration settings of.


Edit: I think i've found the problem. One of the HDDs started clicking. So I've removed the older of the drives and removed the RAID array to try normal RAID setup.
