Hello

I had Microsft Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 installed on a Windows server 2003 SP2 server for several months. Recently I promoted this server to be a domain controller, after promoting the server microsoft virtual server stopped working. I uninstalled virtual server reboted the server and it will not reinstall. It gets almost through the install and then starts rolling back the install.

Any ideas?

Thank you
