Proliant ML310e CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED drive locked

Hi, I am setting up a Proliant ML310e server with Windows 2012 R2. All went fine for a few weeks until yesterday morning when it started up and went to repair mode.

When I refresh my PC I get the message "The drive where Windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again." 

I don't know where to find this unlock option but I think it has something to do with the RAID configuration... (RAID 1, 1TB) When I try Startup Repair it doesn't give me anything, not even a log file.

Rests me no other option than to shutdown... THE END!


Can someone explain what is going on?


Thanks in Advance,



PS. If it is the RAID controller, can I switch that off and run on one of the 2 disks?


Re: Proliant ML310e CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED drive locked




It could be a possible issue due to any encryption software.... if one was installed....


Or, it could probably it is a defective drive. To isolate the issue, run the Array Diagnostics Utility from Intelligent Provisioning and contact HP Support, as it is possible that this server is still within warray period.
