When you boot from the installation DVD you should have an option for repairing bootup problems.

Since servers usually use RAID controller drivers that aren't included with the Windows DVD, you may also be required provide the controller's drivers so the DVD finds the installation to repair. You can put those drivers on a USB stick to get access to them.

Rindi, the repair option to boot to the cd is no longer an option due to the changes in setup for Windows Server 2008. Since it uses a image based deployment option, the file by file copy method is no longer available.

I was thinkinkg that may be the bios has changed for battery problems and the SATA setup has changed from RAID enhaced or compatible.

I Don't know how option was previously,  If is this, Can I repair it? Windows needs diferent dll's ? Can I generate again?

A lot of questions,

thanks
