NT Server 4.0 Devices accidentaly disabl

By enlightmnt ·
Control Panel-Devices were accidentally disabled. The devices are DISK, FTDISK, and AIC78U2. Their setttings were originally set at "BOOT", now is "DISABLED". The server was rebooted and came to a blue screen with the message STOP: 0x0000007B (Hexa...) Inaccessible_Boot_Device.
Then provided a memory dump message at the bottom of the screen. Tried rebooted using last known config, but no help. How could we re-enable or change the boot status of those devices? Please help.

If you have a Recovery Disk for this NT installation you can run NT Installation and select option (R) - to recover an existing installation. Should do fine. Last time it worked for me on NT4 SP6a.

If there's enough space left on your harddisk, install a second NT4 Server into a *different* directory (i.e. \NTNEW), install the same SP as it was installed on the non-working installation. Open regedt32 and load c:\winnt\system32\config\system asa hive. Goto \<loaded-hive-name\Select and check the value of "Default" to know which ControlSet is the current. Goto \<loaded-hive-name\ControlSet00x\Services (where 00x stands for the control set number to load depending on the above "Default" parameter), goto your disabled servives and change the "Start" Parameter from 4 to 0 (zero).

If your NT partition is FAT copy the \winnt\system32\config\system file via floppy disk to any other NT server or workstation and do as I described above. The copy the modified version back to the NT server in question.
