Server 2008 won't display explorer on startup

Hi Guys,

I've got a Windows Server 2008 Standard installation on a high end PC for LAB work and although the install ran fine it won't show explorer on bootup instead i just get a blue screen (not the one of death.....just blue) and i can CTRL+ALT+DEL and run this as a task but obviously this isn't ideal.
I've seen this a couple of times on other full server installs but have only managed to repair it by wiping and re-installing Windows which i don't want to do.

Any ideas ?

Thanks
