Server 2003 R2 won't restart
Posted on 2006-10-20
I'm in the process of building an exchange server and I'm about ready to pull my hair out. The server will not reboot or shut down. I first see the problem when trying to install Server 2003; after setup finishes loading the system files and counts down for the reboot, the computer will not reboot, it just sits there saying restarting computer. I've left it sit over night, but nothing happens. If I reset it, everything continues fine until the next part of setup. If I get through setup and install all of the updates I can find, stuff changes a little bit. Instead of staying on a gray screen, the monitor will loose the video signal like it wants to shut down, but it just sits there until I push the restart button.
I've searched around for a while now, but haven't been able to find anything, can anyone here point me in the right direction?
