Windows SBS 2011 does not restart after updates
My SBS 2011 standard does not boot up. It only goes to two options:
1) to run the repair
2) start normally.
either of the two do not work.
The lats changes I made was :
1) uninstalled Filemaker 10 server
2) did two updates
3) turn server off
4) place a new memory in server
5) restarted the server
server did not boot up.
it froze could not see anything after an hour so I did a force shutdown.
I unplugged everything and removed the memory dimm.
I restarted and the above mentioned is all I got(the two options).
We have a lenovo thinkserver RD330.
I tried to do a restore but it does not see windows.
urgent help need.
my boss wis going to kill me if i do not get this up and running within hours.

ask a question
At the time of boot, does it throw any beep sounds? I would say, boot your system with single dimm and see if it comes up?
From the F8 - press "Disable Automatic restart on System Failure" and reboot it again and see does it the BSOD, if yes than share what it says.
Where exactly it hung up? Till what stage it boots and does not go beyond from which stage?
Kindly share your tests..!!
My apologies for not responding back.
I needed the drivers for the storage to be able to access it.
Once I uploaded the drivers I was able to load up SBS.
