Windows Server 2003 Severly Crippled after Installing Service Pack 1
Posted on 2005-04-14
I have a Server 2003 machine that is fully patched and virus protected that generates the following error on startup....
"Windows must now restart because the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service terminated unexpectedly" and a countdown until the server reboots.
It's not MSBlaster.
This started when I installed Server 2003 SP1 from the windows update site.
I set RPC to not reboot the system upon failure, but very little responds once the desktop loads, including the SP1 uninstaller.
I could really use some help.
Does anyone have any idea what to do with this mess?
