Can you tell us more about the Win2003 server. What type of disk array do you have configured on it? Is it a mirrored pair RAID1 or a striped set RAID5, or something else? Are you running a Smart Array 6402 or some other controller?

Are there any BIOS error messages at boot-up? Are you sure the original disks were genuine HP? I have found that if a server has been fitted with 3rd party drives, sometimes they will not co-exist with genuine HP drives in the same RAID set.

Sounds like the replacement harddisk (which you say is not new) has failed as well.
A tik tak noise is never good.

If that is the same disk as originally failed and you have a RAID5 or better configuration then replacing it with a new (and verified good) harddisk should rebuild the logical drive.
If it is a different disk than before then you might be facing a complete rebuild once the bad disk/s are replaced.
