Can you press F8 when it boots and select last known good config.?

if this fails I think you have a faulty device driver.

You will need to boot with an OS CD and disable the driver. lets see if last know config works first.

What hardware brand? Did it come with diagnostic utilities CD? Did you recently install anything? Can you press F8 and use Safe Mode? F8, disable automatic reboot on error to see the actual error?

Did you boot into DSRM and check logs?
http://utools.com/help/DSRM.asp

Were you in the process of installing a virtual server?

Yes. Everything I've seen points to a rebuild, but that would be a last resort. Just depends on how long the server can be down diagnosing the problem. What is Plan B?

Can you build a CD at www.ubcd4win.com giving you tools to work on it remotely, such as remotely accessing regedit for startup files, etc. In the past, I've been able to use a WinXP OS CD without RAID drivers to build the bootable CD and still be able to access a SBS2003 server. Your configuration may need a different OS disk and RAID drivers - try both ways.

This CD would also be able to run a virus scan (I like the Kaspersky add-on), in case your system became infected without you knowing it.

Also, I've read it's possible that an A-V program is capable of quarantining or deleting OS files necessary for the OS to run, therefore crippling it.

Bit of an odd one this :-

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\tcpip6\Parameters\
 for tcpip6 is not there , should it be ?   (to enable/disable) just checking things.

well rebuilt the server as  two disks had gone in the same mirror only one held on long enought to backup some bits  ,not bootable & unable to repair the boot bcd  ,and just, just readable

these are seagate "BE WARE" there as some  out there that in the right condution die , normaly a  power related (UPS or not) problem. they are on way back to seagate as they have a 5yw. "es ns range" .
 with my foot prints on.  check you firmwares !
