    Win 2003 Server drive failed after 3 yrs ???

    Just moved. Relocated to east coast of FL. Pwoered down the server to move one day before. June 26th. Well last night I went to power up the server computer.(just personal webserver and file storage)
    I I first powered up with no monitor. Then plugged it in to Log on screen. I type password etc...It reads loading personal settings,

    Well thats were it started...Thats all it ever displayed. 5 min later I pwr down and try to reboot. It displays "No operating system found" WTF......

    I tried 50 times after that. nothing. Pull drive and install in USB portable case.
    Other computer struggles to read it but finally reads to use drive it must be formatted first. I cancelled. I tried in a PC all by itself. Bios sees it. 80Gig but then just blinking cursor.

    When in original machine I did throw the win server 2003 disk in to try see if it would display a repair option. No dice. Only repair consel and then it locked up. not saw a promt to enter fixmbr or anything.


    Any thoughts? I think drive just died. Good news 80 of files and web site info was on 200 gig slave drive. I checked it and all is good.

    Setting up the server again all the directories , virtual directies a few buddies websites etc...

    Was thinking about server 2007 for personal. Not looking to spend big $$$ for it though.

    Well I was out of the loop. Its server 2008. I may pop on newegg for the 140.00 version.
    Server rig it listed in Sig older AMD 1.1 gig. few drive. Ran 2003 just fine.
    Nothing else loaded on it but TZO(web service) and office 2003 for frontpage.

    Would like to try the new IIs 7
