Windows 2003 SP2 Hangs at Splash
Posted on 2010-11-16
OK I am missing something. I have searched through all of these on EE for several hours.
I have 2 identical HP DL360 G4p servers with Raid 1 C:\ drives. Both patcehd the same up to last month.
My DC is fine but my DPM 2007 started acting up yesterday. When I opened the DPM Administrative Console, five or more copies opened.
This morning all I saw was a gray screen so I powered off and back on, hanging on the windows spash sreen.
Last known good no help, disabled hyperthreading.
I cannot access safe mode hangs on acpitabl.dat.
When I made a floppy with the Smart Array 6i drivers and started from the CD it loads everything and then just sits there saying Windows is Starting Up.
I have a copy of user32.dll and update.sys from the DC if I can ever get somewhere to copy them to this server.
The only thing I haven't done yet is disconnect the Smart Array 6400 that connects to my HP MSA20 enclosure that holds all of my DPM Disk to disk backups. I'll do that if no one has any better ideas. This Smart Array 6400 has been replaced once already. Server and MSA 20 went out of warrantee two weeks ago. :(
