I have just installed windows 2003 Ent server SP1 on my Exchange 2003 sp1 server. Rebooted. I used RDP to update windows server 2003 Ent. service pack 1.  When the server came back up, it is hung on "Applying Compter Settings"  it took about an hour... I already tried to unplug the nics to allow a faster boot, but no luck.  (No I'm not running any APC PowerChute sotware) Anyone have any ideas? Thanks. It's up now and I can login but I can't keep it like this and I need to proceed with SP2 for Exchange 2003.
