I have a client who has a server down at the moment.  Windows updates was installed on Tuesday and it brought down the server.  Now we need it to come back up, but how?
There are no backups at all for this server, so some assistance would be appreciated.

OK, let's tackle this.  But we need more information.

Do you have physical access to the server?  What happens when you try to start it?

Is it Windows 2003 or 2008?

What have you tried?  Have you tried starting Safe Mode or Last Known Good?
