Request for info on Dell and Windows Server SP1 on SBS


To help us pinpoint the root issue with reports of Dell servers getting a BSOD when installing Windows Server 2003 SP1, if you do have a machine in this state, please call SBS PSS and report this issue. We will ask for a dump file (which may take some time to copy) and then help you get your server up and running.


Some other info we will ask:



  • What date did you order your SBS 2003 OEM system?

  • What 3rd party S/W is installed on the server?

  • When did the BSOD occur? What was the STOP error code?

  • Did you install SBS on top of a Windows Server 2003 OS only image?

Thanks!
