Windows server 2008 r2 foundation crashes on boot up after going in to windows

OK I will try to be as clear as possible so there are no more questions just answers.
Points will not be awarded for links as I have read almost every link out there.
OK from the start I backed up a server 2008 foundataon to add more drives to the machine.
I used symantec system recovery. the backup went OK and the recovery was a bitch to get the machine to boot. I finnaly had to use a windows 7 disk.
Ok now it booted and from the OS I was able to do a lot of things including resizing the OS and making the storage drive and making them dynamic. once I did that I left and when they came back in the morning the server when you would start it it would just say explorer has crashed and not responding..
