Stuck in Safe Boot
Posted on 2011-03-08
Help, I think I've done something stupid!!!!
We where getting massive lag on our internet connection. I narrowed this down to one of our server and though I would do a safeboot to try and narrow down what was causing the problem. I did an msconfig safeboot with networking.
When the server boots into Safeboot it gets stuck at "preparing network connections" (ov 40 mins so far). I tried doing an f8 start and then picking normal boot and last know good configuration, but the server boots back into safe mode. I though I would try and edit the boot.ini file in the recovery console, but booting from the CD's needs a raid driver and I have no usb floppy disk with me to put it on.
Is there anyway of booting ther server back up normally????
it is a dell poweredge server with windows 2003 SBS on it.
