Windows Server 2008 32 Won't boot. Sits at scrolling bar

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have a production Windows Server 2008 system running on VMware ESX4 that was powered off when I came in today. I don't see any vmware errors.

When I power the machine on it gets to the scrilling cursor thing it does at start up and never gets any farther. The scrolling cursor just keeps on going. When I try to boot into safe mode, it stops at crcdisk.sys and just sits there.

Any insight?
