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?

lenn0xAuthor Commented:
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).

Thomas GrassiSystems AdministratorCommented:
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?

Thomas GrassiSystems AdministratorCommented:
Yes boot up with command prompt then run the
 SFC /scannow


 Forgot Windows 2008 Server does not have system recovery
