I have an ML150 G5, running Windows Server 2003 on an RAID 1 array. The onboard RAID controller is LSI SAS1064E.
Yesterday, i tried to do a remote desktop connection to the server, i put the credentials and when I pressed connect, rdc stopped responding.
Eversince, I restart the server, try to login normally (no rdc) and then there is a blue screen with the following error code
STOP: 0x0000008E (0xX000005, 0x808BC9DD, 0xB9283900, 0x00000000)
When i start windows in safe mode, the system starts, but when i start it in last good known configuration, then it doesnt go to the logon screen but it gets blue for 1sec and then it restarts.
I then noticed that on server startup, at the RAID array startup there is the message "failed or degraded volume detected: Volume (00:001) is currently in state DEGRADED" and when I go to LSI Logic Config Utility the primary drive is failed.
Does this has to do with the blue screen??
Can you please help me figure it out?

Boot from Windows PE Live CD, backup needed data to USB drive and reinstall OS.
Also I recommend to update firmware for RBSU and RAID controller to latest version.

You think the blue screen has to do with the failed drive?
Also, why should I reinstall windows on the server, instead of replacing the drive and rebuilding the array?
What is rsbu?

1.remove failed drive
2.run full memory diagnostics or install healthy modules
3.if memory is ok, try to start win
4.if successfully started, install drive and rebuild array, if not - backup data and reinstall OS (or you may try to find corrupted system files and replace it)
RBSU - Rom Based Setup Utility (BIOS)
p.s. is any usefull error message in iml log before the accident?
