Yesterday afternoon, a sudden boot failure happened to my Windows Server 2003 computer when I was planning to wipe a partition which contains heaps of significant data. I can not even figure out the exact reason, let alone corresponding solutions to fixing it. Is there any useful suggestion for me?
How much do you know about boot failure? Here, we would like to introduce it briefly. The term “boot” comes from bootstrap loader, a type of program early computers used to initialize the system for users. The system will try to load the operating system after assuring that the hardware works correctly. Users will receive boot failure warning message if certain process fails.
As the low-level operating system managing the hardware in PC, the BIOS keep a list of devices used for boot process. Typically, the first item in the boot order is main hard drive, designated Disk 0. The BIOS will automatically bypass the fixed drive and then move to the next, if the drive contains damaged data or lacks a usable operating system. If the system moves through all recognized and available devices without finding an operating system to start, the boot process will fail.
Well then, how to restart a boot-failed system and then perform disk wiping? Actually, an ISO boot partition tool server 2003 supporting disk wiping can masterly do the trick, and professional MiniTool Server Partition Wizard Server Edition is one of such software.
