URGENT harddrive wipe out

  vinnyo123 00:26 16 Nov 2003

I reecently partitioned my harddrive on Win ME with disk manager 8.0. This was because I needed space to test Win 2003 server 180 day trial.All seem to go well with partition.In middle of set up with win 2003 server noticed partiotion and I installed it on it.Install completed rebooted fine .Then when I logged into server 2003 blue screne came up kernel error. restart if this don't work shut down bios memory caching and shadowing tried this no luck.Seems like on boot up stallls on finding harddrive .then asks for bootable disk which don't have oops.Checked in bios and cannot see IDE hardrive either .

well any advise would be appreciated .....THANKS

Are you sure the trial disk is'nt bootable?
