Failed to start windows guest OS

Hello

We have a guest server in Xen with Windows 2008 SP2 x64. The server suddenly booted in a bluescreen. When restarting the server we got "Windows failed to start".

File: \Windows\system32\DRIVERS\scsifilt.sys
Status: 0xc0000098
Info: Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing, or corrupt.

How can we fix this?

Did this happen after installing a SP or perhaps a certain patch?

1. Insert the original Server CD/DVD and boot from it.
2. Select Repair Your Computer then click Command Prompt
3. Issue the command: Copy: X:\Windows\System32\drivers C:\Windows\System32\drivers
Where X: should refer to your CD/DVD ROM-Drive
4. Restart your server
5. You might require to reinstall your SP.

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
