Machine fails to complete automatic reboot after applying WSUS updates

We are currently pushing out Windows updates to client via WSUS SP1.

We are having a problem with a Lenovo 8813. It is running Windows Server 2003 and is acting as a Terminal Server. It will download and install WSUS updates fine, but when it automatically reboots (to install the updates) it will freeze on the Lenovo logo and the message "System starting......(to interrupt normal startup press Enter)".

A manual reboot is needed to perform a successful reboot.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? Any suggestions?

You should look at what updates were applied that made this happen. Perhaps it was a driver update that cuased this issue. If so you should uninstall the update/driver. Also check out the event viewer to see what error(s)happen durring this.
I hope this helped out a bit. Good luck.

Unfortunately there is no error in the event log to indicate any problem.

Thanks for the suggestions though.
