I am running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise and it recently starting acting up. At first, it would loop on the windows splash screen and wouldn't get to the part where I would need to log in. I tried booting at last known good config, no luck. Boot in safe mode, no luck. When in safe mode, I see a message at the bottom that says " Press ESC to skip SPTD.sys. I tried to skip it and let it ride and it still wont boot. It gets hung at the same place. When I tried doing a chkdsk /r and /p, I get a message that says "The volume appears to have one or more unrecoverable problems". Can someone please help?
