Hi,

my windows server 2008 R2 restarts with BSOD with error stop 0x0000007B. I tried startup recovery using windows 2008 bootable but no luck. log says registry corrupt. I tried chkdsk /f,
tried bootrec commands .

It is a vm ware virtual machine, we have sql server 2008 and sharepoint 2010 installed on that machine.  We have very critical applications running on that machine.

Can anyone please shed a solution to bring that machine up and running.

Thanks in advance,
Ravi Kishore

I think you should attempt to restore registry to a previous date.

There are several ways to doing so, anyway I would advise installing your HD on another machine as an extra drive and restoring registry from backup.

Im want to convert VMDK files to normal windows files . so that I can copy those file to working windows machine and can take the backup.

Vmware vcenter converter has no such options , can any one suggest a tool that converts VMDK files to normal windows files( not virtual machine).
