Windows 2003 server hangs during boot. Booting in safe mode hangs in loading ACPITABL.DAT. Possible environmental factors: Windows 2003 Service Pack 1, QLogic 2300f Fibre HBA, McData IPS4300 Switch, Xiotech Magnitude.
When the server is connected to the switch (has a fiber Zone), booting the servers first then connecting the NEO FCO to the switch everything works fine.
Connect the NEO FCO to the switch then boot server(s) they will hang. Booting in safe mode shows the servers are hanging on ACPITABL.DAT.
Please contact Xiotech ( http://www.xiotech.com )to verify the version of the driver. You may also need an older version of Qloglic driver to work correctly with the Xiotech driver.
