hang up creating a domain in windows 2008r2

Hi,

I´ve got a ibm systemx 3100 m4 server where is installed a windows 2008r2. when i try to promote it as a domain controller in a new domain it does all the process of creating the new domain but when it restarts, the operating system doesn´t initialize. I have try this several times but i allways hace the same result. does anyone know what can be happening?.

Thanks.

It begin to start, but it doesn´t pass from the screen of the "green bar". I have been waiting for 20 minutes but the operating system it doesn´t finish to start. When, i only can shut down the system by pushing the power botton. I have done the promotion several times but i allways have the same result.

I can create a virtual machine with a windows 2008r2 and promoting it to domain controller, its only a temporaly solution, but its working.

How long do you wait before giving up - 30 minutes? Hours? Overnight? Does the green bar continue to move the whole time, or does it freeze?

It may be finishing up some promotion-related configuration - I've never seen that take longer than a few minutes, but every server and configuration is different. I'll occasionally catch Windows taking a really, really long time to boot after a configuration change that seems minor.

i have let it booting about 20 minutes, the bar is moving but  it doesn`t finish. the virtual machine has done the promotion and boot in less than 10 minutes in the whole process.

I let my server working much longer and finally create the domain with no error.

Thanks.
