It's just a button used as reference .... When you turn the UID, turns on a light blue both forward and back to the server, is in general use in datacenter.

Can you access to the server's keyboard?

If , Yes, restart the server and press F8 continuously.

Hi,

To my mind, the best way is to use a LiveCD to boot and make some space on the C drive. you can try with a Ubuntu CD. (http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download)

So if your server don't start anyway you can forget that was a Space problem.

Have a nice day,
Yoann

Yes you can boot a ML370 from cd. Not in front of a server now, but from what I can remember F10 or 11 is your man.
Can I ask you what anti-virus program you have installed? I have seen some stop servers and computers at applying computer settings. Just hangs there and does not go further.
Another cause of this is an DNS issue. The server will hang at applying computer setting for upto 15 minutes if it can't contact it DNS server. So check network connections  and make sure DNS is ok.

Hope Making some space will sort your problem, if not then you have some more option to try.

-> Server is on Raid ?
-> Number of drives ?

Need to press  'F8' key  right time to bring "safe mode" menu.
or try by pressing "Shift key" while server boots (don't remove pressing shift key until you reach login screen)


-> Any windows update done before this problem ?
