our exchange server just tried to install SP1 for server 2008 and during reboot and install of the updates a fatal error ocurred
the error was C0000034 i tried to boot into safe mode and it halted at classpnp.sys unable to continue
i found this thread
i didnt do the first bit i did the second bit editing the xml file, the server rebooted and finsihed updates
in update history it now says SP1 has failed, which is fine, atleast our server is back up!
ive downloaded the readiness tool and am going to run it on th server before attempting to install SP1 again
could anyone offer any advice or steps to take before installing this service pack and for any future reference what else can i do to make sure it doesnt happen again
is the readiness tool enough?
what else should/can i do?
