SBS 2008 not booting after recent Microsoft Update

Hi.
We're running 2008 SBS. Yesterday there was some sort of MS security update, which asked to reboot.
After the reboot the server is still handing "applying computer settings".
The majority of services is not running.
I tried to boot to safe mode but couldn't log in there due to the message "network logon service not running". I only can boot to the command prompt.
Any way for me not to restore the complete image backup?
Would be really fine.

Thanks in advance,
Alex Barba.

ok boot in safe mode and make sure that IPV6 is checked under tcp/ip setings! you can always run msconfig on safe mode and startup microsoft services only and start diagmosing!

Did you disable IPv6?
Try to reboot again into safe mode with networking and verify that this is enabled.

Thanks, that was my plan as well, but as i said, i can't login to the safe mode cause the logon services are not running (at least that's the message).

ok I had the same problem. type in the domain\username as username and yourpassword. you might see on the login menu that you have the domain selected but just make sure you type in domainname.local\username and the password and uplug the network cable fromn the back of the server.

Any chance to edit the IP setting in the registry?
I can run regedit in the repair mode.

If you choose safe mode with command prompt once it pops up you can press alt + cntrl and del go into task manager and click on new task and type in explorer.exe it should start windows explorer and you will be able to un install the update that caused the problem.

Ok guys, thanks for your help, i was able to logon in the safe mode, but IPv6 was already checked and i was not able to uninstall the critical update (button "uninstall" was disabled) so i had to restore the whole system partition from my backup.
