server2008 reboots at "applying computer settings"

Hi,

I have a Windows Server2008R2 server with SQL2008 installed.

I joined it into a domain and after restarting it always reboots while displaying
"computer settings are applied".
The same happens with Safe Mode with or without networking or command line.

I unplugged the ethernet but that did not help.

I removed the Server from the domain (from the DC) but that did not help.

What else can I do?

Hope anyone can help me...

Was this after a update being applied?

Do you have a shutdown or startup script setup?

no, no updates.
 I even checked if there is a pending.xml in Windows/winsxs/, but there is not.

there are startup scripts for the user (via gpo).

try this

run msconfig

in the services tab hide all Microsoft services then disable all others

in the startup tab disable all

restart.

See what happens could be a service or application causing this

This will help determine that.

If it still happens then you have an OS issue..

also run SFC /scannow

sorry, but I cannot run msconfig because the servers keeps rebooting before I can login....

the server is stuck at "applying computer settings", then it reboots.

In safe mode, it gets to "press ctrl-alt-delete" and then reboots.

Sounds like the OS is corrupted.

Do you have the Windows 2008 DVD?

Boot from it and try system recovery

what do you mean, "system recovery"?

I can boot from dvd and open a command line, and then?

Yes boot up with command prompt then run the
 SFC /scannow


 Forgot Windows 2008 Server does not have system recovery
