Stop 0x0000000A while trying to run WHS restore CD RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using the 10/7/09 version of WHS restore. It and the prior version (7/12/08) give error Stop 0xA. I have tried both memory sizes, low resolution video, no certificate checking and all give the same stop 0xA.

     

    Full Stop is 

    Standard, no options

    0x00000000A (0x94AC0C86, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x888BA8D7)

    Less than 512, low res

    0x00000000A (0x94AC0C86, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x80CBA8D7)

     

    How do I get restore to work??

  • Hi Jim,
    this stop error points either to a driver error or to a hardware problem. What is the reason, that you attempt a restore? Maybe in the hardware platform you are on is something broken causing not only the OS running originally on it to fail.

    (Could be also termal - environmental heat, stopped cooler fan, many dust inside computer.)

    If you are sure, this is not a hardware issue and you have a second client PC you may be able to perform the workaround described in the FAQ How to restore a client PC, if the network connection does not work in the CD based restore environment.

    Best greetings from Germany

  • Not exactly telling when  (at what point) this happens, but ok..

    You can load the specific LAN drivers. A bare metal situation can have issues.

    A solution posted earlier :

    How to update Realtek NIC drivers during Bare Metal Restore

    During a Bare Metal Restore, the NIC drivers for the Realtek  family of network cards may need to be manually updated using the XP/Windows Server 2003 driver. The Windows Home Server restore CD will indicate the "inbox" driver for the restore CD is present; however, this driver may not work and there will be no network connectivity. The solution is to download the drivers from the Realtek site and install them during Bare Metal Restore using a USB key outlined in the process below.

    Note: Passively placing the drivers on the key will not work as the existing drivers are already loaded.  You must follow the steps below.

    1.       Download network driver from the Realtek Website:
    http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=7&PFid=10&Level=3&Conn=2

    a.       Download the Windows XP(WinServer2003) Driver.

    2.       Extract the zip file onto the USB flash and plug the USB flash into the client PC.
    3.       Apply the downloaded NIC driver with Windows Home Server Restore CD
    a.       On the detect hardware screen, select the appropriate time/currency format and keyboard/input method
    b.      Detect hardware dialog will detect one network device but it will not be usable because of hardware and driver incompatibility.

    c.       Manually update the driver from the USB flash

        i.            Select the “Show Details…” button

      ii.            Scan USB flash to update the driver

     iii.            Press the “Install Drivers…”

     iv.            Push “Scan” button to scan for new/updated drives

      v.            A dialogue box will pop up:

    "Drivers were found for your hardware.

    Click OK to see all detected hardware."

     vi.            Select OK
     d.      Verify that you have updated the Network driver. You should see your specific hardware listed in the “Detect Hardware” dialog screen.
