I finally set up a Media Server with Win Server 2003 - Evaluation Edition (180 day trial). Athlon 1ghz. 3Ware 7506-8 with 3 WD250JB, 2 Maxtor 250s. 550W PSU.


It boots fine and settles nicely into Windows Server.


However, I've been getting unresponsive hangs.


Watching the performance monitor in Task Manager, fast movement of the scrollbar in Explorer, briefly yields 90-97% CPU utilization.

When I try to move a file, say 60mbs, from my OS drive to the RAID drive, it hangs (unresponsive).


Help. Any ideas what's going on here?


I thought it was the PSU, so I switched in a new one - same result.

I thought it was the UPS, so I took it off - same result.


What could it be:

? Win Server 2003 Evaluation Edition installation?

? 3Ware card? (seems to work - although its in a 33mhz PCI instead of 64bit)

? A bad drive? (although they all check out in the RAID software check.)
