Windows 2008 Server reboots during the boot processes

I have Windows Server 2008.
The machine does not fully boot. The Microsoft Windows screen comes up for a few seconds then the mouse appears and then the machine reboots.

I ran many different repair suggestions from Startup Repair to BOOTREC to SFC to Chkdsk (using /f /r options and found nothing) and then I found that with Startup Repair I receive a message that the repair could not automatically repair the problem.

Here is the problem Details:
StartRepair V2
Problem Signature 01: ExternalMedia
Problem Signature 02: 6.0.6001.18000.6.0.6001.18000
Problem Signature 03: 6
Problem Signature 04: 327685
Problem Signature 05: NoRootCause
Problem Signature 06: CorruptVolume
Problem Signature 07: 0
Problem Signature 08: 1
Problem Signature 09: Chkdsk
Problem Signature 10: 0

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Press F8 during boot and select 'disable automatic restart on system failure', then see what error you get on boot.  How did you run chkdsk?

It's common when running chkdsk from the recovery environment to run it on the wrong disk...  Did the chkdsk show 'No problems were found...' ?  You can run Diskpart > list volume to make sure that you're running checkdisk on the correct volume.
