Windows Server 2008 Boot Manager Issue

I recently installed Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise on a server and now, every time the server reboots, the Boot Manager sits there with the Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system option hightlighted and then waits for me to make a choice.  No matter how long I wait, I have to hit the Enter key to get off of that screen. The only other thing on the page in under Tools and that is called Windows Memory Diagnostics.

I went on the Advnaded Tab on System properties and unchecked the box to leave the boot manager on the screen at all and I made sure that the only operating system on the server - Windows Server 2008 R2 - was selected in the dropdown list.

I do not know how to make this server just launch the OS and the server will soon be moved to Terminal Service-only access.  Can somebody please help?

Did you try to run the R2 installation disc and choose to repair the system?

I have never tried to repair the system but I did have issues with the RAID drivers in the beginning so I aborted the initial installation attempt and had to reboot and try again.

This is still an issue and I do not know how to overcome that stupid Boot Manager just waiting for me to tell it to choose the only available operating system...

Try to use this tool then:

Mess with the settings - wait time, default boot option, etc.

I am not sure what happened but the system now reboots without any issues.  Since you were the only person to try and help out, I figured you deserved the points!
