I have a Windows 2003 SBS Server that boots the the Windows Server 2003 Screen (with the little bar going across the the bottom) and that is as far as it goes. It never gets to the point of preparing network connections or applying computers settings.
It isn't hung (at least the little bar keeps moving) but never gets to the ctrl-alt-del screen. My guess is that a service has hung or there is a drive that has hung. The server boots in to safe mode and safe mode with networking just fine but won't boot normally.
Anyone have any idea where to start on this?
