Hi,

I have windows 2008 booting problem in HP Proliant DL380 G6. When the OS starts it boots all the way to the logon screen, but when it's time for the logon screen to pop-up, nothing happens. There is only one black screen with mouse cursor which is possible to move around. There is no ping to the machine, it is impossible to invoke Task Manager, no Remote Desktop. I rebooted the machine multiple times with safe mode, last known good configuration but there is no effect. also I tried the following reg key copy
Insert the Windows 2008 server DVD, then after choosing currency and language click on "Repair your computer".
Then open the command prompt .
First: CHKDSK /R /F /X if it want to reboot - reboot then go back to the command prompt.
After that:
Copy COMPONENTS, DEFAULT, SAM, SECURITY, SOFTWARE, SYSTEM  from  C:\Windows\System32\config\ to backup directory
Go to C:\Windows\System32\config\regback and from there copy COMPONENTS, DEFAULT, SAM, SECURITY, SOFTWARE, SYSTEM to C:\Windows\System32\config


Kindly Help me to resolve this problem

I think the second link is not related as the guy is saying that he is able to logon in safe mode

Unfortunately, the first link didn 't work, as the logon user is correct already for the Rpc service
